Guest Artist: Donn Kinney of Bishonen House
Bishonen House has now been in existence for seven years, and during that time Donn has handmade over 300 BJDs which are in private collections worldwide. His BJDs have been featured in Doll Reader, Haute Doll, Fashion Doll Quarterly and Dolls magazine.
Donn continues to create and release new dolls and is currently finishing construction on the new Bishonen House studio which will include an expanded doll workshop as well as classroom space where he intends to teach doll making, casting, and mold-making workshops for model makers and doll artists.
When Donn isn’t working on doll commissions, he spends his time working on a top secret web-comic project. (Those attending his panels will get a sneak peek!)
