On Saturday I attended Comic-Con. Believe it or not it was my first time - I had a blast. I'll be posting some of my photos soon. In the mean time I've just uploaded some photos of of Jim Henson's City Critters toys to my Flickr site. Enjoy!

Seattle Children's Theater

Children's Theater 2

During my trip to Seattle, puppet designer and graphic designer Elizabeth Luce arranged a tour of the Seattle Children's Theater - many of their productions include puppets. We met up with Doug Paasch, their head puppeteer and he gave us a peek backstage.

From left to right: Me, Elizabeth Luce, Doug Paasch, and Victoria Johnson backstage at the Seattle Children's Theater.

P.S. Please note Elizabeth's cool Tiger and Mousedeer sweatshirt available at the Swazzle Store.

Check out the new "Pea Gees" card from PuppetGreetings.com - it's super! I made the peas - puppeteers Victor Yerrid, Carol Binion and Michelan Sisti performed them. Send it to all your friends.
