Baboon puppet's made!

Today I've finished the puppet I've been making for HeartBreak Productions. He's 60cm from head to monkey toe and made from papermache and odd bits of material. He's controlled with two rods and has a moveable mouth. I've had a lot of fun making this puppet in the sunshine, here he is, little Derek.

Now all my actual uni work is done for a while I'm taking time to do things I really enjoy. A director has asked a few of us to make some puppets for him to use in his workshops, they can be any type, size and subject, which is very exciting. 
I want to make an animal, probably a baboon. 
These are some drawings i did yesterday to try and deicide which animal to make, a lot of people told me to do the sloth but he'd not be much fun a puppet, far too slow. 
The puppets have to be finished by the 30th march so there'll be photos up soon of the finished thing

Madame Tussauds project ends

Quite disappointingly I'm not really very proud of my work for this project and I'm not expecting a great mark but oh well, too late now cause I handed it all in this morning. However bad my final outcome is, I've learnt a lot this project and I've pretty much decided I want to do exhibition design forever.

I may have already explained my idea, but this is the space I've designed for an exhibition at Madame Tussauds showing the development of the British fashion industry. I know already that they wont like my idea, It's way too cool and interesting, they prefer to exhibit unrealistic models of leona lewis.
