This is an exciting time for all members of the Art Doll Community! As we begin this journey into the magazine publishing business, we will be tackling issues common to all art doll makers! The art doll community will be providing exposure for new artists, affordable  advertising options for established artists, contests, art submissions opportunities, publishing opportunities for writers, news and industry events, exclusive doll premieres, artists showcases and more!
