Thanks. I'm hoping to get him finished by the end of the weekend, but it looks like I may have to finish him on monday since I might have to get into the workshop at my school in order to use a pretty potent spray...
Anyway, I love working with these eyes, they are great. Here is a link to my blog where I actually wrote something about the company I ordered them through. I have the link there to exactly where you need to go to get the eyes.
I haven't met Lolly, although I wonder if she is the one who built the puppets for the Aquarium that I have seen used in a parade. I'll look her up. I really don't know many other puppeteer/builders here in Chicago since school takes any and all time that could be used socially. Ha.
Happy building. I hope the eyes work well for you.
Thanks very much for your nice compliments. It's my goal to build upon some of the classic comedic styles made popular by Jim Henson (and vaudeville acts before him). I hope that my work continues to produce smiles.
