Oh yea...

I know, I know: I'm seriously the WORST blogger ever. Granted, part of it is that this blog was meant more for my stop-motion stuff, and I've been crazy busy doing theatrical puppetry and mascotting. At Tandem Otter, we've just finished the big refurb for the Pee Wee Herman Show! I hate that I don't have any pics for you, but it's been insanely awesome getting to work for one of my childhood heroes, however indirectly. He'll be at the Stephen Sondheim theatre starting in November!

I have been inside Chairry. And Conkey. Seriously. You can touch me if you like. :D

And I've been mascotting like mad; I'm actually about to leave for my first ever performance tour with Bixby's Rain Forest Rescue! ( I'll be gone for just under three weeks and I hope to have some great performance shots when I get back.

That time of year again!

Soooooooooooooooooo guess who built a dozen sheep for this year's production of "A Winter's Tale" for Shakespeare in the Park. Most of the puppets were built by the awesome Lake Simmons and her team (and Lake does a lot with us at Tandem Otter), but she let us in on the fun.

You should go! And you! And you over there! No, not you, though you should, but I meant that guy!

I'm also a docent at the Christian Boltanki installation, "No Man's Land" at the Armory on Park. If you see blue hair, come over and say hi!

Miffy Goes to Washington!

I know, I know, but I couldn't help it! (It's like I'm trying to elevate cheese into an art form or something!)

Miffy has updated her facebook page with photos from her White House Visit! She was there on Monday for the annual Egg Roll, and I got to be her super special helper!

She had a great time playing with the kids and all the other mascots there. It was an amazing, and exhausting day. :D

Here's a link of her dancing with Apolo Ohno on Fox News!

More photos here!

::insert catchy Disney tune here::

Wow, we've just ended the primary build at Basil Twist's for the touring Beauty and the Beast and are about to jump into The Addams Family Musical (on Broadway)'s refurb! Eeek! Beauty and the Beast opens on the 9th in Providence, RI and our wolves (and Enchantress) are flippin' SWEET.

If it's hitting a town near you, check it out! Revel in our amazing puppets!
