I got a Barbie, but what I really wanted was GI Joe.
As a young girl, I experienced the joy of Barbie and other assorted feminine toys…
That was until I witnessed GI Joe in his exaggerated ball jointed form. Over time fetishistic, uniformed strong men became an influence in my work.
Using software such as Poser, Blender, Iray and 3D Max, I have combined elements to make that toy I longed to have.
