“Pidgin: Birth of A Muse – an afternoon with doll-artist Joshua David McKenney”
New York fashion illustrator turned doll-maker Joshua David McKenney shares his journey of artistic discovery through a doll named Pidgin. Joshua will present how he taught himself a variety of doll-making skills; from paper-clay, to firing porcelain, to casting resin, to 3D printing, each step refining and evolving his unique vision of Pidgin. Also we will be screening a short documentary about how Pidgin became a social-media muse to tens of thousands of young creatives via Instagram. Joshua will be taking questions and sharing his design process with you in person. You will also be able to see some early Pidgin dolls as well as his exclusive 1:4 scale MDC event doll.
