I did these sketches based on the final puppets I built for Cbeebies show Feeling Better. These sketches were for the animation company to use as guides and references when developing some of the animated sequences in the show.
I was the puppet designer and maker for a major new Cbeebies TV series Feeling Better. The show, presented by Dr Radha, features two puppet creatures. They explore the complex world of emotions. Series 1 started airing March 19th 2017, and is featured on BBC 1, the Cbeebies channel, youtube and cbeebies radio.
I am a professional puppet maker and creature creator. I design, illustrate, sculpt and fabricate. I also have a performance background as both an actor and puppeteer, so when I develop characters and build puppets I always approach the project from the point of view of the performer. I strive to build characters that are engaging and believable, whilst making them a joy to perform, allowing the puppeteer to get the maximum and most versatile performance out of them. I have worked in puppets and creature FX for a number of years; spanning TV, Film, theatre and online mediums. Please do take a look through my galleries: puppets, Illustration, sculpture, Design or you can look over my experience to see some of the clients and projects I have worked on over the years. if your interested in any of my work please don’t hesitate to contact me.
