    Beautiful stuff Jarrod.

    I especially love the Bart Simpson puppet. It is amazing the shapes you are able to achieve with your designs. Great job!.

    Just saw some of your new work. I love Jack the Squirrel and Norris! It's cool to see Nancy Cartwright loved your Bart Simpson puppet.

    Great work as usual Jerrod!

    Your work is nothing short of amazing! I emailed a while back - don't know if you got it. I'm interested in learning what materials and methods you use for your arm rods. I'd definitely purchase your 'how to' video if you ever get around to it. I want to say that you are a class act on ebay as well. I'm floored when I see some puppet designers demand rediculous prices for puppets that aren't even 1/2 as good.

    Peace ~ David

    Could you help out and tell us what your using as a material for the half egg type eyes on you puppets ? like on frank here or the little corbin monster

    Also do you have any pic's of interior eye mech that you've made for any of your puppets .
    Your work and creatively will surely be missed if you stop making puppets when you go overseas

    thanks for all the inspiration!

    I'm pretty sure he uses plastic spoons. Could be somthing else, but that's my guess.

    hey all,
    thanks for your kind words about my work, I'm glad you enjoy clicking through my website. As far as my Trekkie replica I don't have any plans sorry, I just compile lots of reference shots and work it out from there - I recommend trying this method if you wish to make replicas because as you are probably aware companies like Henson don't give the patterns away..... You might have to make ten wrong ones before you are happy with it. Now as far as my eyes go, I think the ones you were talking about were the "egg" shaped eyes.....and thats what they are... plastic eggs, I now have a mold and make my own eyes, which allows me to make any shape or size eyes. Just keep an eye out for different shaped items that may make good eyes and experiment ( thats what i do)

    Her Keeermit, you do some awesome work man. I think you did a sweet job with thoes Erine and Berts of 2006, as well as Elmo. Your other repilcas are sweet as well. Hope to see more of your work.

    I just looked through your site and all I can say is WOW! Probably the best replicas I have ever seen. And the original characters are incredible. I love Grog. Only thing I didn't like were all the pop-ups.
