You Remind Me of the Babe

Behold! I made a puppet version of Sarah from the ballroom scene in Labyrinth. All thanks to the show that gave me a reason to do this; I'm pretty darn proud of how she turned out.

From the FELT-A-THON - Laine Mouillé

Thanks to our crew, special guests and donors, the first year of The FELT-A-THON was a success! We worked for 24-hours straight, shot 11 puppet videos and raised over $1,000 for Habitat for Humanity - Seattle/King County.

This video is my personal favourite of those that have been edited and released into the wild. I've long been lightly obsessed with the ridiculousness of perfume ads. Obviously, the only way to improve on that is with puppets ;)

New Piece this Weekend!

Hey howdy, friends and neighbors! Just a quick heads up that I'll be debuting a new piece this weekend.

My friend Kendra wrote a book and commissioned me to create a puppet piece for her book launch party. The working title is "Cows in Space," and it's my first overhead projector shadow puppet piece, so I'm super excited.

Birthday Book Release Party
Saturday, February 28th at 8pm
Tin Can Studio
3130 Airport Way S, Seattle, Washington 98134

I got to see a preview of all the acts on Monday and this is going to be an awesome show. Pole dancing. Giant spider. Assless chaps. More info here.

The book is called Shotgun Brides: Kindling (by Kendra Hayes) and you can buy it from many fine online retailers. Just sayin'.

Holiday Build Class...HOW DID I GET HERE?

As I was putting the word out about my Holiday-themed puppet building class (*ahem* November 22nd *ahem*), I realized I had yet to share this nifty little video I made with my friend Chad to help guide people to my puppet studio. Enjoy!
