Kevin the Creeper

Kevin
Mouth Puppet
Here's Kelly and her best friend Kevin...
He's called Kevin the Creeper because he kinda reminds me of The Creeper from the Batman comics.

Crazy Pink Guy

As far as I know this puppet doesn't have a name...
Pete, am I wrong?
This one is a puppet I co-built. Tricky Pete and I were hanging out at his place a couple years ago working on puppets and we both started working on this crazy one together. So here it is on A Puppet A Day, the first co-built puppet!
Pete's made a few more puppets that will end up here after I hit the one year mark, along with other puppets made by other Elmwood crew members..

Geoff

Geoff

Jim did sketches for how he wanted Geoff to look, then I ran with it form there. I'm really happy with how he came out.

Banana Buddy - Bowler

In the book "Puppet Mania" there's a puppet called the Banana Buddy.
John Kennedy wrote this fun book on puppet making, I recomend picking one up!
I did a worksop with him in 2005 at a puppetry festival, we all made the banana buddies, and then put on a goofy little show, the one I made ended up a bowler.
Here he is!

Another Jon

Jon
Hand Puppet
Yup, another self portrait, this one's a hand puppet with a fabric face as opposed to a sculpted one like Rev. Jon.


My grandmother is a crafter and she gives me boxes full of her remnant fabrics from time to time. Since there usually isn't enough of one type of fabric to make one of the big puppets I use the stuff on the puppets, often as hair, and other touches, and I use alot of it for these hand puppets. I love making them, they're quick and fun.

The Witch


The Witch

She was made a tribute to my mom. Seriously, hahahaha...!
Every Halloween my mother would dress up like a witch, get really into it. We had the yard that was decorated to the extreme, like a cemetery and such, even made the news a few years...
She's appeared in the old Plink show, Plinksgiving, and in Steve The Vampire.
She was also part of the gallery at the 2005 Puppetfest in St. Paul MN
Today would have been my mom's 62nd birthday, so wherever you are;

Happy Birthday Mom!
