ArtisticGaming started from a need to find a stress free hobby. The repetitive nature from crocheting that allows one to zone out was very smoothing. I began creating dolls of favorite video game characters. I then showcased my work on DeviantArt at first. Someone from WoWInsider must have seen as I was asked if they could interview and show off some of my World of Warcraft dolls. So awesome.
From there I opened my first Etsy shop and began taking commissions. Often I would have months booked in advance. It was fun and exciting getting to experiment with techniques and make characters I had never heard of before. I decided to offer a free ecourse so others could learn how to crochet. I also began offering patterns on various dolls I was making, most of them free. Eventually I got burned out. I’m currently on hiatus from making dolls, but I have left my patterns up for others to enjoy.
