4 deviants said Or last but not least a "how to" sculpting book, this one would be the most ambitious project & take the longest to complete but I've wanted to do a book for years. It would be a book on how to sculpt dragons from start to finish.

3 deviants said A dragon art doll line, like the wyvern dragons I did but with more options to make them "custom" dolls. Again Kickstarter would make them more affordable & would give me the option to get better furs & materials all around.

Nina Bolen
Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
United States
My name is Nina Bolen, & I live in East TX with my husband & our many animals. When I'm not working with animals I create art.

I've become best know for my whimsical fantasy artwork of dragons & other mythical creatures.

I grew up watching the Dark Crystal & Labyrinth, and Jim Henson's The Story Teller & Fraggle Rock where my favorite shows. So it's natural that my artwork would be inspired by Brian Froud, Wendy Froud & Jim Henson. I have loved fantasy artwork my whole life, and it revolves around everything I do.

I have also won awards for my one-of-a-kind artwork. My artwork can be seen in publications such as, Teddy Bears & Friends Magazine, Teddy Bear Review, Bird Talk, Dollums Magazine, just to name a few.

I studied fine art/sculpting/illustration at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, but I still considers myself largely a self-taught artist.

Today I sell mostly online. Items like, needle felted plush, artist bears, custom plush, OOAK (one-of-a-kind) sculptures, ATC/ACEOs and fantasy art.
I am also available for free-lance illustrations, book covers, licensing & custom orders.
