Groucho de Bergerac

I've been working on several puppets lately, some for a personal project that a few buddies of mine and I are doing and some just for fun. The subject of this post falls into the "for fun" category!

Just Another Day in IT

It's been a couple of months since my last post, but I can now break my vow of silence. I've been involved in some pretty awesome puppet-building opportunities as of late and I plan on dedicating some blog-space to these projects. In the meantime, here's the unveiling of my most recent work:
