"Nightrider"
approx. 11 inches high -20.5 inches w/ base -13 inches wide
Isle of Appleshire Series

The is a "Nightrider", one who works for the village power company. They are the caretakers of the fireflies that are placed into the street lamps and the tall "claw-horns", the night creatures that they ride. These creatures,also known as "leaf eaters" are very gentle as long as they only come out at night. Their large eyes allow them to see the smallest detail in the dark but daylight is very painful. Their long legs enable them to eat the top, most tender, tree shoots and gives the rider the needed height to reach to the top of lamp posts.

"Dittles Disturbing Discovery"
approx. 7.5 inches high - 11 inches with base
Isle of Appleshire Series

This was in the Summer 2008 issue of Art Doll Quarterly magazine with article of "The World of Appleshire".

This is Dittles, a green flit that lives near Whamp Marsh. Like most flits he is married and has three little flits. One of his most important jobs is to gather honey for his family. These are very long and tiring days of work as the most fragrant plants, with the best honey, often grow in some of the most dangerous areas near the swamp. On this particular day as he had been doing very well until he found a dragon egg, hidden in a small cave, that had just hatched. He became very disturbed by this and did not know what to think....would the baby wake and eat him or would its mother return and squash him? What to do?

This is a young pilot testing out his newest magical creation. The creators of these machines usually have a gift of magical inheritance that allows their machines to have an interactive personality of a living creature or being.

Exposed parts are prosculpt clay with a soft stuffed body and glass eyes. He is wearing his leather cap, goggles that can be moved over eyes or taken off,a cotton knit shirt and leather vest. His machine is made from two gourds, aves apoxie, a lichen tail and rolls on a set of cork wheels.

"Ludwig Von Smyth"
approx. 10 inches high
Isle of Appleshire Series

This was in the Summer 2008 issue of Art Doll Quarterly magazine with article of "The World of Appleshire".

Ludwig is a very creative fellow who loves music. He moved to Earthgate from the mountains of Areoland on the southern edge of the island. He spends most of his time on the streets of the village with his magical organ music machine that was built by a mystical wizard. One of the results of this is that the music can be used to calm dangerous beasts and used to its fullest can put them to sleep. The magic only works when Ludwig use it, so this makes him a valuable asset to the village. He has been called away, to other locations sometimes,to aid someone in danger.

Tommy Twig - English Nutter

Copyright © 2010 Linda Apple
"Tommy Twig"
approx.4 inches high
Isle of Appleshire Series

Tommy is now a resident of Korwood Forest and although his family, like many of his species, are very social, they are known to travel long distances to visit others who live in heavily treed areas on the island. He is an English Nutter and, as you might not be knowledgeable about these little beings, I will fill you in on a little of what I know. When they are born, they are so tiny that they fit into half of a nut shell. In fact before they are born, the parents MUST have their shell prepared. They spend there time in the shell until they are big enough to wear it on their backs. This is to protect a large hump that holds their magical powers. They live in the hollows of trees which are often decorated with shiny objects that they find irresistible.
