    Hey guy,
    I have been busy building puppets for a local production of Avenue Q. And it finaly opened this past Wednesday. I will post a bunch of the link. I designed and constructed the puppets for the show. Let me know what you think.

    Neat! I especially like your take on Trekkie Monster.

    I just saw a local production in Atlanta, and was blown away by its sheer excellence. One thing I wondered about was the puppet design. Are the puppet builders for regional performances required to come up with different designs, or is that the builder's choice?

    From what the director told me, you can use the original designs but then you must credit Rick Lyon in your playbill as the designer (he was the original designer and builder)

    Thanks Adam. I was actually wondering what you used for the white part of his eyes. Thanks!

    I heard that Rick Lyon also had the Avenue Q puppets for rent as well. Though the original Avenue Q, that's still performing in New York right? I'd love to go see it again, it was great. Plus I got to see Book of Mormon. With the great satirical minds of one of the authors of Avenue Q with Trey Parker and Matt Stone, I know it's got to be something crazy good. :) I'm a huge Trey and Matt fan as well as a fan of Avenue Q and adult puppetry. :)

    I think this is where one gets the license and rental puppets. They look okay though I'm not sure if Rick also supplies the puppets from the original or not.
