So I've been thinking about this a lot. Some of us have real interactions with BJD artists like Batchix, Twigling, Tinybear, and harucasting... but what about bigger groups like Cerebus project, Soom, Switch, Iplehouse, Volks, etc? Who are the artists who make our dolls? edit: If we did know them even a little would this help stop recasting? Do any of them have active relationships with their audience? (i.e. social media, in-person, anything) Is there any way we could talk some of these people into doing a livestream so we CAN talk to them? I know some artists like Gentaro Araki are very private people for good reason. Many manga artists seems to prefer their privacy as well. Just curious what our community's experience is like? Edit: I am not asking for artist to do anything that is not comfortable for them.; I believe in autonomy! Interacting and managing an audience is a difficult thing that is a job all by itself that some humans make a living doing.
