Wow, what a week. [19 Sep 2010|01:27pm]
This has been a crazy week. Mon and Tues I worked as Art Dept on a Home Depot commercial. 12 hr days. I dont mind being specialty art dept for puppets or props, but I dont really think I am cut out for general art dept stuff. Cant say that I like it.

Wed The Puckin Fuppet Show opened for a band. We opened for Blair Crimmins and the Hookers (who are actually really awesome rag time stuff and you should check them out) at the Star Bar. That was a lot of fun. Madison J. Cripps and Valerie Meiss came down from Asheville to stay with me and do the show. It was great having them visit. I did 7 puppet shows back to back that night. It was wild.

I also started back at The Center for Puppetry Arts in the puppet shop on Wed. We are building the Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer show based on the old Rankin Bass stop motion film. Its really awesome.

Last night we did The Puckin Fuppet Show at its new home at WonderRoot. The new venue is going to take some work. However we were SO LUCKY! My usual hosts had conflicts and Leslie Carrara-Rudolph was in town doing her amazing one woman show at the Center for Puppetry Arts called Wake Up Your Weird. If you have the chance you should really check her show out this week before she is gone. Leslie plays Abby Cadabby on Sesame Street and is an incredibly gifted performer and really sweet person. She had agreed to do a piece at the slam which was awesome to begin with. I ran into her at the Center and with my fingers crossed asked her if she would be interested in guest hosting the show and she said YES!

She was AWESOME as our host and I feel so honored to have been able to have her be part of the show. I really cant thank her enough.

We showed some Bob and Carl: SciFI Janitors at the show and they were very well received.

So I am pretty beat after all that and am taking some RnR today.

phew

10 Million XP [25 Nov 2009|03:40pm]
Last night an party of epic level adventurers broke into the house to do battle with the Arch-Lich Wickett. The heroes suffered heavy casualties against Wickett's powerful necromancy, including their Bard, Ranger, and Level Drain. In the end the Paladin and his +10 Holy Sword Against Undead proved too powerful for Wickett.

The tiny green fire wrapped in bones and fur went out.

Rest in Peace Wickett. I love you.

D*Con in the 11th Hour [02 Sep 2009|10:22am]
Today I am going to finish up my updates to Mirror Master for the whole Flash Rogues group this year. I am very excited because I think the whole current Rogues roster is going to be represented.

I am redoing Mirror Master's belt and gauntlets from the vinyl so they match the hood fabric.

Also a last minute decision to do the 11th Doctor. Complete with companion Amy Pond, courtesy of Alex.

Rogues Friday night
Doctor Who Sat night

See you there!!!

hmm updates [25 Aug 2009|10:50am]
lets see, still unemployed.

but i start my 10 week technical certification course in Ornamental Iron Fabrication in Oct. thanks HOPE Grant!

after a huge dry spell contracts have flooded in this last few weeks. Several mascots are on deck or in negotiations, a Stork, a Sun, a Tae Kwon Do Kid, and a Horse.

Ive got a prop making gig that im crossing my fingers might turn into something more permanent.

Im also having a meeting today about doing a Scarecrow for Scarecrows in the Garden at the Botanical Gardens.

The Kids Show continues to limp along. We are now talking about turning it into a live stage tour show to drum up an audience for the eventual tv show and drive traffic to the website.

speaking of websites check out my new layout for my site:

Kelly is the best!

We should hopefully get some actual content up some time after D*Con

Poli Dégaine "The World's Best Punch and Judy Show" [19 Jul 2009|04:57pm]
I saw them perform at the festival and if you can go see them you should. They are playing at the Center July 24-26. Hilarious.

Matt and Nate, I want the both of you to watch them as part of your training.

National Puppetry Festival [19 Jul 2009|12:43pm]
I am back from 5 days of incredible puppetry. I performed The Diary of Anne Frankenstein in front of 500 puppeteers. It went over really well. I met lots of incredible puppeteers, took awesome workshops, and saw lots of really great shows. It has been one of the most incredible artistic experiences of my life.
