Intermission Part 1- Bagging it

Things are coming along but they are coming along sooooo s-l-o-w-l-y thanks to obligations and getting my little man readjusted to school. I have tons of boxer sketches to show but I promised myself to up the ante before I posted more of those.

So instead I decided I'd show a few sets of paper bag puppet collaborations with my kids before they crumble to dust. Several of these show the heavy battle scars of packing tape and some have been played with so much that they are the consistency of tissue paper. This way I have evidence that I wasn't a completely bad pop. Right?

Sesame street. The Frazzle puppet (lower right) is the oldest I think- about 4 years.

More Sesame Street. Little Jerry and the Monotones with Telly and Oscar.

My daughter's princesses.

Miscellaneous paper characters- Human Torch, Hello Kitty, multi colored Foofa, Toodee, just a dog.

Paper bag Muppets and a character from Henson's Dog City.

Intermission Part 2- Mr. Ice Cream!

Motivational treat box I put together for my son this school year. I realized after doing it that it probably was born of more than a little influence from super talent Jim Campbell's hilarious Mr. Pork Chop.
