Paper Dolls

Paper dolls based on television shows have become very popular projects. Mad Men is a perfect subject for this form — retro fashions and interesting characters — and these paper dolls by J.R.Smith show an appreciation for graphic concepts of that era. The dolls could have been cut out of a magazine ad.

There are other Mad Men dolls. The ones by Dyna Moe come from a new book that includes other  Mad Men inspired art using a somewhat different take on early 60s design than that of Smith above.

 

 

 

 

 

But the best examples of these nouveau paper dolls are those by Kyle Hilton, who has done Parks and Recreation, Arrested Development, and other shows as well as some movies. The Breaking Bad series are my favorites.
