I am getting a puppet from Hawaii! Woohoo! Animator John Hankins is sending me a specially made ball-joint armatured puppet. A few weeks back I had an insomnia induced idea for an puppet foreign exchange scheme. I mentioned the idea on the http://www.stopmotionanimation.com/ forum and people seemed to like it, so now I am going to be the first recipient of a puppet.
As soon as I'm finished with my TAIS Monster Jam animations I'm going to make John a puppet in return and send it to him. I am quite jealous of my as yet unmade puppet - I'd like to go to Hawaii too!
Behind the scenes stuff on my Monster Jam entries, plus new animations coming very soon!
