New Ebay Monster puppet RALPH


below is a link to my latest Ebay pupper RALPH, check him out - he was a labor of love, spending countless hours attaching his ostrich feather plumes to his head to give the effect of the "hair" growing out from his head.

I have recently completed a job for a client which included building 7 puppets to resemble band members which will be used to shoot a music video clip, below are some random shots of the puppets being built, sorry some of the photos are alittle blurry but you get the idea. Have a great day.

Green Monster Update


Oh dear, this didn't work out the way I had hoped - I kind of got carried away and forgot to take pictures of this puppet, and now he is finished! So from the last update I covered his foam sculpted nose with Antron, attached four different colours of Ostrich plumes for his hair and added his hands and feet, both which are posable. He also has removable arm rods. I will try and take better pictures soon - this was just a quick reference shot of him on my puppet stand. Have a great day all
P.S. he wont always be wearing a T-shirt I was just trying it on him

Green Monster Update

Here is the green monster puppet updated - I have covered his head in fur and attached to the body, I have also carved his nose and pinned it to the head to check the size and shape. Next the nose will be covered in Antron fleece and I will make him a set of eyes. I have also made his tongue which has been made from a pink ultra suede and outlined with a dark red pen.

Pictures of current green monster

Below are some quick snap shots I have taken of the early stages of a puppet I have had designed. He is quite a small puppet in size which is what I like, once on the hand I find smaller puppets to be easier to operate. above is a photo of his foam skull, the two templates in the same picture are for his mouthplate which will be cut from timber in the next few days.
Above are a few pattern pieces for the puppet, once deciding the length and width of the puppets arms and legs I make rough cardboard patterns like these.

Above is the arms and legs cut and pinned ready to be sewn, I usually machine sew the arms and legs.


Above are the arms and legs turned right side out after being sewn together.

Above is the body which has a foam body inside.
I will try and update as much as possible, this puppet is more of a spare time puppet to make inbetween real jobs so it may take some time to complete. have a great day all

GREEN MONSTER

I will be making a little green monster soon - I will try and blog a step by step of me making him . I have a sketch somewhere of him - I'll find it and upload it soon ;)

August Update

Hi everyone, sorry for the looong delay since the last post. I have been flat out with custom orders one after the other and havent had time for much blogging ( well no time actually) . I have just finished a project where I have constructed three oversized clown heads for a roving act company which have turned out great - they have oversized heads but normal bodies ( almost look like bobble heads) . My next project is an order of seven puppets to look like band members for a music video clip which will probably take me a few months to complete. Then I am off to the USA for some relaxing . Also I didnt have a laptop for a while but its all now reformatted so its all go from here. I will try and add some more puppet blogs soon - just thought I would give you all an update as to where i'm at. Have a good one!

P.S. thanks Eric for reminding me that I had a blog! haha

Rusty Monster on FACEBOOK

I have started a new venture on FACEBOOK - I have created a blog for my character Rusty Monster - if you have facebook add him, his email is rusty.monster@hotmail.com . He hopes to see you there soon!!!!

FEB09 UPDATE

Hi everyone, Sorry for not updating lately - I've had a big house move going on for the past month with my studio moving etc. I haven't really been doing much in the way of puppets which is the reason why I havent been blogging - I don't really want to start blogging just for the sake of it, I am now starting to get back into it so hopefully my blogs will become regular once again. I am still working on reviewing a www.projectpuppet.com pattern - I have received the pattern so hopefully soon I will be able to review it. Also I hope to start back up the project I have started with an amazing artist in California.... more on that soon also. Have a great day everyone.

2008 puppets




One of my favorite custom builds this year was a shaggy cat puppet, he was a blast to design and build and the client was just as great - which helps ALOT! ( I have had a few clients who I thought must have been the Devil!) .... I hope you like the pictures. If you are ever after a custom puppet free free to Email me at jeyebay@hotmail.com
have a great day!

Bunny Video of ear Mech and "cookie monster" style eyes






videoHere is a short video of Bunny in action, he has "googley" eyes like cookie monster, he also has an ear mech which allows him to lower his ears - very cute..... Enjoy

New Puppet


Here is one of my latest puppets, for some reason little children love this guy, must be his excited face. I will try and get some better photos of him as this is him just sitting on my puppet rack. He is still nameless - I find naming puppets harder these days, I'm sure it will come to me soon. Have a great day

AUCTION SOON


Hi everyone, after following the building process of my Villian puppet I have decided to part with this amazing puppet. I had decided to keep him after I made him - but due to lack of space in my studio I need to Auction him off to a new home - He will be listed in the next few days, I will put a link up once he has been listed.

NEW PROJECT

Sorry it has been a few weeks since my last blog - busy over Christmas and New Years, I decided to take some time off for a well earned break. I am still in talks with a very talented artist about a building project - which I am quite excited about. I will update my posts weekly now I am back from holiday mode. Have a great day!
