Ragdoll is a surreal journey through the minds of living dolls and broken slaves, and an exploration of what it truly means to be free; a sprawling epic that spans time and space, sex and death, life and imagination. It contains scenes of graphic violence, as well as nudity, sex, and foul language. This series is a horror/fantasy/sci-fi story that delves into the realms of spirituality, drugs, psychosis, and the dizzying reality of the human condition. Ragdoll is absolutely not for children, and


Melody is the inspired artist behind the White Light Express logo, illustrated a special theme for the award winning magazine “The Hiss Quarterly” and created the stunning brand for “The Cosmic Hooker”, as well as other commissioned work.
