Grayson Hall: Art imitates life

Dana Lee, who you might remember from this post way back in February, graciously sent me some samples of her artwork to include in today's Grayson Hall Blog-a-thon. I'm especially fond of the doll, which is as close as we'll ever get to a Grayson Hall action figure (unless Specter Toys steps up its game in 2013.)

Thanks! LOVE Grayson! This Blog-A-Thon is the most fun of the day. I Really Love Night of Dark Shadows, whether or not they edited it to death. Grayson is especially creepy/cool in that one. The doll was made to order, specific. The same patron has mentioned wanting a big Countess Du'Pres soft boudoir doll. So, we shall see... Grayson Hall Forever!*
