Allison Renyolds

Allison
A Stick Puppet from the series Holly Pop
All the characters in Holly Pop are either high school students, or teachers.
All the students are named after characters from other high school films, like The Breakfast Club, or Better Off Dead, etc... That whole genere.
And all the teachers are named after teachers I had in school.
Some of the puppets are based on the Elmwood Crew and a few of our friends, others are totally out of my head.

Brie

This is BRIE.
Made for the Simon Sinister music video Simon's Lament, based Brie McDonald who appeared in the video.

Brie puppet wearing Brie's glasses!
I want to take a moment and thank Brie here also.
Thank you Brie!
This blog was actually inspired by her. She read an article in a art magazine about a painter who challenged himself to do a painting a day for a whole year. And he did it. They were in all different sizes and styles. I kept thinking about that, and I was impressed. I wanted to do it myself, but with puppets.
The more and more I thought of it I thought it would be great to put all the puppets I've made and am making. So here it is...
So far so good
And also thank you Brie for being in the Simon's Lament video!
You should be a movie star!
