This listing is for one paper doll magnet, Billy. He was hand-drawn by me probably when I was 12 or 13. When you purchase Billy you will receive a print of the original illustration, glued to a backing of recycled cardboard.

Billy is fluent in Spanish and knows all the lyrics to "La Vida es un Carnaval". He'll sing it to you if you want :)

When I first drew Billy, I used ink and colored him in with crayons. Recently, to add some design, I used a sharpie for the patterns on his clothes. I glued the magnet to the cardboard backing. Billy is 5 1/2 inches tall.

I made about 300 of these guys from the time I was 9 to 13. I guess it was a way to express my view of the world around me. When I stopped creating paper people I packed them up into a shoe box and stuck them under my bed. :(

But, a year ago I decided a great use for these childhood drawings would be to adorn your refrigerator as a magnet. You could collect a whole family of them for your kids to play around with on the fridge or they can brighten up your office space.

Billy and his bio card will arrive safely in a cello bag, wrapped in tissue paper, inside of a secure envelope.
