Little Details, Big Smiles

February 1, 2014 Posted by Megan in Blog - (0 Comments)

I spent all last week putting together this video for BigCartel’s Store from Scratch contest. I worked really hard on it and I think it turned out pretty cute! I hope you like it!

I’ve also been a busy bee planning the new Nonesuch Doll line. To keep things fresh and exciting, most of the new dolls will be limited editions and one-offs. However, I will also be offering a basic collection that will almost always be available year round. (Exception being if I get really busy and need to close new orders for a bit.) The line up includes a rabbit, a deer, a fox, and a bear. There will be two colorways of each so that’s eight dolls to choose from! I decided to keep it simple and stick with woodland critters because they are my favorite.

I hope to officially release these cuties in March! In the meantime, I have three more Teen Wolves on the way and a batch of limited edition candy colored foxes planned. Stay tuned!

Out with the Old, In with the New

January 25, 2014 Posted by Megan in Blog - (0 Comments)

I’m retiring the Classic Nonesuch Dolls this year. I will still make the occasional Best Bear to keep my scrap bin under control, but I’ll be phasing out everything else. This was a really difficult decision, but after making over 300 of these little critters, I’m ready to try something new!

The new generation of Nonesuch Dolls have already made their debut on my social networks and in the new Nonesuch Garden Shop. I have been calling them the “Teen” Nonesuch Dolls because they look like lanky, teenaged versions of my Classic Nonesuch Doll design. If you aren’t familiar with the Teen dolls yet, here they are!

Yup. They are Teen Wolves. Haha! I couldn’t resist.

The Teen Nonesuch Dolls are the immediate future of Nonesuch Garden. They are taller and more substantial than their Classic predecessors which makes them a pleasure to hold and pose. They were designed in such a way that they can wear specially made outfits and accessories, making them even more customizable and fun! For the time being, these dolls will be largely one-of-a-kind characters with unique outfits and accessories. Eventually, I would like to offer a Basic series that you can purchase nude and add on outfit pieces and accessories if you wish.

I’m VERY excited about this new doll and I hope you will come to love it if you’re not so sure about it yet. To be honest, when I was prototyping this doll design, I had my doubts… But I gave them a chance and now I can’t get enough! My prototype has become a constant companion. I mean, come on… How cute is this?

There are still some Classic Nonesuch Dolls available in my Shop and a few more on my work table that will be listed as I finish them. This is your last chance to snatch up your favorite before they’re gone for good!

The Lore Keeper

I’ve been struggling for so long to get motivated to work on my graphic novel. I need to make a rough draft, but I’m so picky… I’m a perfectionist… And I get in my own way. I’ve tried numerous sketchbooks and materials for my rough draft, but I always abandon them for one reason or another. I don’t like the paper, I would have to buy another one every 50 pages, it’s too big to take with me everywhere, it’s too small to make legible thumbnails… Take your pick of excuses.

Then I got a Hobonichi Techo.

It didn’t occur to me right away that I had found the perfect book to plan my graphic novel in. I started journaling everyday and it slowly dawned on me… The paper was perfect, the size was perfect, the printed graph would cater to my perfectionist nature, the dated pages would motivate me, and I could potentially fit my entire 300+ page story in it. I had found it; the holy grail of planners. The planner that’s finally going to help me get my graphic novel out of my head and onto the page.

I was really enjoying my journal so I bought a second Hobonichi Techo to devote entirely to the Lore Keeper. I’m three days in and I’m absolutely thrilled. I’m going to plan and draw one page every day. If I’m right about the page count, I will have a tiny, perfectly readable rough draft of my graphic novel finished by the end of the year. Finally, after 7 years of false starts… This is going to happen.

Get your own Hobonichi Techo here.

Nonesuch Octopus Prototype Complete!

December 30, 2013 Posted by Megan in Blog - (0 Comments)

I’ve successfully recreated the beloved Nonesuch Octopus! I stayed very faithful to my original design, but the new doll is slightly bigger and I polished up some of the seams. I think she turned out lovely!

You can pre-order your own Nonesuch Octopus (or Squid!) in nearly any colors you like! The pre-order will end on January 15th or when sold out, whichever comes first. These dolls are being offered at an introductory price of $50 each! Future dolls will be priced higher. Adopt yours in the Nonesuch Garden Shop!

From the Archives: Cephalopods!

December 16, 2013 Posted by Megan in Blog - (0 Comments)

Nonesuch Garden is diving deep into the archives to resurrect an old favorite… Cephalopods!

Unfortunately, the patterns have been lost to Davy Jones’ Locker and need to be remade. To make this happen, Nonesuch Garden is looking for a few brave buccaneers to pre-order some of these salty friends in order to buy supplies and time to work out the new patterns.

The new octopuses and squids will closely resemble the ones pictured above in shape and design. They will be made from your choice of solid colored merino wool felt and arrive beautifully packaged in an official Nonesuch Garden box with a Certificate of Authenticity. I’m expecting to price the final dolls at or around $65. Get one now for the introductory price of $50. There are a limited number of pre-order slots for both designs, so suction one up while you can!

Please read the listing carefully for turnaround time and ordering instructions. Thank you!
