Visiting the kiddos on Easter Sunday with Kip! (above)
I had a blast taking John Tartaglia's "Advanced Puppetry Intensive!" (below)
And here's a video I made (for an audition) that showcases several of my puppets!
Sometimes I make puppets, sometimes I play with them. Take a look!
Made this little lady for an audition video. I will try to post an in-action video soon, her antenna are bouncy!
This little fella I made is the newest member at Christ Church United Methodist in NYC.
I worked with the church to create weekly videos featuring Kip. You can view them all here! Or just scroll below for an example episode.
I made these guys (and gals) for a super fun, creative group of kids and adults!
And here they are in there new home and put into action by the "Huron Players:" (Note - I'm not a part of the Huron Players - but I'm envious of their creativity and enthusiasm!)
I've always had a thing for turtles.
Here is a dog puppet I created and built for Grace Place Kids Check back for the 'official' episode of his debut!
After all, Harry does need a friend. Or a nemesis.
I wanted a cute little kick around puppet, so I made this girl.
I did NOT design this puppet. And sorry to say, I do not know who did - but they did a beautiful job. This girl was on some Asia tour (I think) of an incarnation of Thomas and Friends Live. She was very road weary and, frankly, falling apart. So she came to me for a rebuild. I basically tore apart the existing puppet and used it as a pattern to recreate her, just as she had been.
I fully rebuilt her body, legs, and neck sleeve. Her head was in really good shape, so I just tightened up and did a few small repairs to the eye mech (inside and the actual trigger), remade her ears, and I think just cleaned up the inside of her mouth some.
Oh. did I mention... She's HUGE!
Again - I can take little credit for how she looks when she is done, because all I did was restore her to how she probably looked right after her original builder made her. Whoever you are... well done!
