A Personal Update

Mon, 03 Mar 2008 23:17:11 +0000

Back in June I posted a few pix of puppets I had been working on for I-Fest. Well, here we are eight months later and I finally got the caricature puppet in the same room with his inspiration. Whaddaya think? The man is Phil Vischer. He’s the puppeteer (and brains) behind the silliness on the wildly [...]

TMBG in Puppets

Sun, 13 Jan 2008 03:25:23 +0000

For the benefit of the uninformed, They Might Be Giants (TMBG) is an American alternative rock band known for odd songs and a unique sound. Their fans span the globe and have been labelled “cult-like”. Their album Flood debuted when I was in high school. I’ve been a fan ever since. So you can guess that [...]

Making It Match: Part 1

Wed, 14 Nov 2007 07:57:54 +0000

No, not “making A match” as in “matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a…“, or “striking a match” as in “only you can prevent forest fires.” Today we’re going to discuss creating an appropriate visual connection between your puppet’s (specifically mouth) movements and the sound it is supposed to be creating. Hence, Making It Match. In a previous [...]

The Art of Misdirection

Fri, 19 Oct 2007 04:17:30 +0000

Last week I took my kids to see The Greatest Show on Earth. Besides being overwhelmed with the sights and sounds, the talent and technology, the fun and fears… I found myself wishing that I could pack it all up, replay and freeze-frame certain elements to puppet team directors and performance planners. Magicians practice hour upon [...]

Tales from the Bayou

Mon, 20 Aug 2007 17:42:54 +0000

OK, so I mentioned that I’ve been working on some video projects. Most of my summer video production has been for personal projects, but last week I got to go play in Huntsville, Alabama and work on a new Christian kids’ series called Believer’s Bayou. Hoo-doggie, it was a lot of work, but tons of [...]

…it’s been a long, long time…

Mon, 20 Aug 2007 04:41:44 +0000

Well, my busy summer is just about over and I’m finally home with a little chance to breathe before getting back to school schedules, fall festivals and the rest of life as we remember it. The last few months have been filled with puppet design and building, video shooting and editing, teaching and performing and, sheesh, [...]

A Personal Note

Tue, 26 Jun 2007 21:05:11 +0000

Those of you who have been following this site over the last few months may have noticed the recent lack of posts. Well, I thought I’d show you what I have been working on… See, I’ve got this little performance in a couple of weeks at I-Fest and–glutton for punishment that I am–I have been building [...]

Pix from Denver Fest

Thu, 03 May 2007 05:30:55 +0000

It’s been a couple weeks since the Denver Regional Puppetry Festival, but I wanted to share some highlights of this year’s conference. I was not on the teaching staff at Denver this year, but since the festival took place just a few miles from my house, I decided to crash the party and just enjoy [...]

Day of Puppetry in Denver

Sun, 29 Apr 2007 03:12:11 +0000

Today was the 8th Annual National Day of Puppetry. Fun puppet events took place all over the country, but I got to take in a few of the activities sponsored by the Mile High Puppet Guild that took place here at the Englewood Public Library in Englewood, CO. There were puppet making workshops and puppet shows [...]

Funsies on the Web

Sat, 28 Apr 2007 17:16:59 +0000

This morning I awoke to a feedbox full of goodies, including some nice puppetry finds. I thought I’d share since I’ve been kinda slow in the posting department this month. shares a rare behind-the-scenes Muppet video featuring Jim Henson, Frank Oz, and Michael Frith. The vid is way too short (9min), but it includes some [...]
