Your work is absolutely incredible.. and I have to say, I adore that toe poking out the side of his shoe. It gives him such character, as if his expression wasn't enough.

I love him Jill. Somehow, you always find a way to top 'perfect!' I'll bet it was fun soiling his clothes :].

I'm just trying to come with some smart comment, but I cannot. How could you do it so beautifully? The wrinkles and everything. I'm searching for an adjective no use. I'm stunned.

You did such a wonderful job on detail... If you did any better of a job I think that he would be breathing at the moment. I look forward to seeing more of your creations. Keep up the good work!

Jill, Matthias is so exquisite in every detail, and so is all your art, but something about him strikes me as so very sympathetic ! How marvellous to have such talent and the amount of patience you must have to create these art dolls of yours. Thanks fer sharing to the rest of us art doll fans... *smiles*

You are a very rare artist,i haven't seen many sculptures artists on this website,but to have so many editors picks reflects your high skill.You capture the weirdest personalities with your characters, almost like it came straight out of a jim henson movie.Great work!.
