After a long absence, I finally started building puppets again. I have a little bit better ways of working and scheduling myself now which has made things tons easier.
I was getting very burned out on my art therapy with seniors after dealing with many, many deaths. I think that is all I want to say about that.
My first new commission was for my dear old friend Brett Roberts, who I have made several little puppets for before. He wanted a miniature, puppet version of the character Honk seen in the old 1970s show Far Out Space Nuts.
Honk was a full body suit character played by Patty Maloney, and I really like the character, so I was happy to do this one.
Here is the original character,
And my puppet version! Beep beep!
I’m working on a commission for an old friend from high school. He wants the firebird logo from a Trans Am, but with a twist; he wants it zombiefied. I think I’m going to like this!
So yeah, here’s what I’ve been up to lately…makin’ a puppet for a MYTHBUSTER!
Ruby the Red Nosed Reindeer had quite a few showings this month; I also worked on several commissions:
Well, Sludgey is done, and ready to be shipped off to his new home. I’ll miss the ol’ drippy guy.:)
I’m working on a commission for The Sexy Armpit, a blog about pop culture in New Jersey. It’s a great site and I’m proud to be a part of bringing its slimy green mascot character, Sludgey, to life.
Bit by bit, he is taking shape. Next come layers of green fleece “slime”.
