Knitted Elliott Smith Doll – ‘I πŸ’™ Metal’

Knitted Elliott Smith Doll – ‘I πŸ’™ Metal’

I’ve been an Elliott Smith fan for a long time, so it was quite the blessing to work as an associate producer on a great documentary about his life and music, Heaven Adores You. It looks like there could a second theater run this year, details still unfolding, so I thought it would also be a good time to re-post this amazing Elliott Smith doll, made by Gill Bass. If you’re interested in seeing Heaven Adores You on the big screen, follow along on Facebook for updates.

    Hi. I do not really understand how this website (or any others at all, really) work(s). I am not very tech-savvy at all.

    But I digress…

    Assuming this gets to a person called Gill Bass, I am wondering whether it would be possible to purchase a your beautiful little knit-Elliott, here. My baby brother is turning twenty-one and this would make the best birthday present EVER.

    Uh…I guess that’s it. My email is Thank you so much for your time.
