Mr. Ooba gets a Grant!

The production Mr. Ooba’s TEAM is an anti-bullying play conceived by my friend Jordan Schwartz and being built and eventually performed by Puppatoons, having been portrayed in various installations by Jordan’s pet project, The Children’s Bilingual Theatre. Recently we were awarded at the┬áNeighborhood Excellence Initiative Event given by Bank of America. Miss Schwartz was at Bryn Mawr in the middle of exams and could not attend the awards dinner, so I and Jacko, one of the characters from the show, attended and accepted the award check in her place.:)


Triumph Visits Occupy Wall Street!

Now, while I keep most of my puppetry work “all ages”, I do enjoy adult puppetry and a do a bit every now and then, keeping the genres carefully separated.

One of the more mature adult puppetry bits I can’t get enough of is Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog.He recently covered Occupy Wall Street. Enjoy. ­čÖé

Commission: Cuddly Toy Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man!

I was asked by my fellow Ghostbuster Brock┬á Parker if I could make an item to auction off for charity at our Ghostbusters II Screening Event that will take place at The Alabama Theater on July 30. The proceeds will go toward helping the victims of the recent tornadoes in Alabama. I said,”Sure thing, Brock, whatever you need”. He asked for a Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man, and here you go.:) it took a while to get the shapes for the arms right..or at least as right as I could get them…XD but he is very cuddly and soft, made of fleece and felt and┬á ready to be cuddled.

He will be going up for auction to benefit Alabama tornado victims as part of The Alabama Ghostbusters‘ GB2 movie event July 30th!



Warrior Dash 2011!

This past weekend I participated in a hilariously muddy, filthy, wet n’ rugged race called Warrior Dash. And of course, I always have to bring Puppatoons into the event, so, I put a small creature on top of my helmet I wore:

Skoop Daloop, my lucky running mate, and:

My Warrior Mo shirt I painted for the occasion.

Actual race pics after the jump. I figured somebody out there might want to see one or two.
