Sorry I haven’t posted in quite a long time. My wife and I welcomed our newest member to our family on June 5th- our son Elliott and since then not only have I been focusing on the family but I also been busy building a puppet for the Stan Winston School of Character Arts Hand Puppet Design and Fabrication course with B.J. Guyer.
So far the course has been fantastic! B.J. is such a wealth of knowledge and he even provided us with a pattern to work with. Even though this is a introduction to puppet building course I have learned a lot of techniques I will definitely use for future puppet builds. The other people who signed up for the course are all very talented and as they post their work I am always in awe of the calibre of talent they possess.
We have one more class then two weeks to finish the puppet and submit it for grading. Here are some pictures of the puppet and costuming I have been busy trying to complete before the deadline- my goal is to make a Puppet that is camera ready. I will post regular updates here on PuppeteersUnite! as I build the character to completion.
