Quick Update!

Hey everyone! I wanted to share a quick update on some posts I have in the works for the Diary. As usual I am currently working on photos for the next piece for All My Toys. This story was supposed to have concluded and toy Miss M was already going to be on her way to living in her fabulous toy apartment in a fabulous toy world where her only way to regain respect from the toys around her would be to join the cast in the making of Jaws 5. A fifth Jaws film is the key to world peace. I'm just saying.

The other projects I'm writing involve a series of entries detailing very special conversations with Justine Dantzer. Justine has a long storied career in the toy industry. She is a toy designer, sculptor, inventor, and illustrator to name just a few of her many talents. The amount of toy lines she has worked on and even had a hand in creating is simply astonishing. I want to explain more but I have to contain myself and save it for these series of articles. Needless to say communicating with her has been a dream that I never even knew I could have come true.

So stick around folks! Diary of a Dorkette is certainly heating up for the summer! I hope you are all doing well!


  1. You had me at "Jaws 5" is the key to world peace but my ears perked up when you mentioned that Justine is an illustrator too. I've been gathering up quite a collection of promo art that's used on toy packaging in the last year and would love to learn more about that side of the industry from someone on the inside!

  2. I saw the trailer for the "The Shallows" before Civil War and I gotta say , that is a STUPID NAME for that movie! It should be called, "Blake Lively, in a Bikini, Fighting a Shark!" with the exclamation point of course! (I feel bad to promote her, cuz I love Ryan Reynolds so much and I think they are getting divorced soon but this concept could work!) I DID think that was gonna be a Jaws reboot at first!
    I gotta admit I don't know Justine's stuff, what she did, but I SUPER look forward to reading about it!
