Noel Cruz is one of the most versatile & distinguished repaint artists in the doll community. He is most recognized for his character & celebrity based dolls due to their uncanny resemblance to the people they portray. His dolls are derived from several models like Gene, Tyler, Sydney, etc, by various doll-makers such as Robert Tonner & Franklin Mint. His repaints as well as his portraits are done with intricate detail to the point of being naturally lifelike in essence. Highly regarded among collectors and artists alike, Noel attempts to raise the bar and bring a fresh take to the common mass produced doll with every face he paints. Noel's specialty is with one of a kind repaints. The beauty of repaints is that almost no two are exactly alike just as no two artists are alike.

I've been working with Ken since 2012 in conjunction with Cruz. Ken started out with simply an eBay store front and no social media, no website and barely any presence online. I developed a logo and brand for Ken, made some suggestions, developed a web site and social media (which I also keep up and maintain: Blog, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Flickr) and Ken's business exceeded his normal yearly income by 300%.
MyFarrah.com averages 5,000 visitors a week from all over the world and although Fawcett passed away in 2009 the site and her popularity continue to grow. This site embodies the utilization of revamped and new graphics as well as videos/clips and edits by myself and is a great example of what a celebrity site could be utilizing everything possible today.
A Collectors site for all things of a smaller scale.
Welcome to the world of collecting. This is a "safe space" where there is no judgement or preconceived ideology about who should and shouldn't collect dolls, action figures, dioramas or other art of the one sixth, one fourth or other dimension of collectible. The main focus here is primarily one sixth but collections grow and sometimes there are some other scales of art just as fun to promote, write about or discuss.
Check out the Winter 2019 Issue on YouTube and 1Sixth Winter Issue: Life Scaled Down. This magazine features OOAK Artists and Doll Companies. Featured in this issue: Dominion Doll, Noel Cruz, Regent Miniatures, Fashion OOAK Designer Ryan Liang of SHANTOMMO, fashions by ELEN PRIV, Antonio Realli, and other OOAK Artists Chan Sama of Plastic Guy/CGdoll, Pure Icon, Eggie & Deb and more!
