House No. 90: Dog Housesketchbook, ink, and puppet
roughly 18 in. x 12 in.
Heidi, as you can see from her blog and website, is wildly talented and innovative. As a puppeteer, she is also a different breed of creative person.
As Heidi was describing some puppets to Noah and me (over dinner with the Richmond, Virginia 365 crew) this evening, and she just moved her hands with such dexterity and animation. It was amazing. Her hand, by itself, was the start of a puppet.
That lead to this little dog.
This puppet even has an articulated tongue that is glued to Heidi's fingernail, so he can pant. How cool is this? His tail is glued to the back of her hand.
Update: to see the puppet in action, check out Heidi's video.
I drew the doghouse in my sketchbook to make a set for the little guy. Below, you can see how it is set up.
So, even though I had neglected my attempts to spend the month of March collaborating with other 365ers, I did finish the month with a collaboration. And I've decided that I'm stretching my collaboration month into April.
