Challenging yourself

It always amazes me how my interests in puppetry always seem to be changing. When I am building I always take in to account my desire to take on new challenges as well. When I was asked by ventriloquist and performer Tim Holland to build a new puppet for him I was intrigued.

You see he asked me to build a severed head puppet that also had the illusion of being held by a false hand. I had never done anything like this before and I jumped at the chance to try it. The result was a pretty cool puppet that had a built in blinking eye mechanism.

If you would like to see Tim and this unique puppet, then please check out his company called Foolesque. Tim is also available for festivals and corporate clients as well.
