Geoffry Sports some hair!

Geoffry Hair1

Quick update! Geoffry gets a dew! His hair is made like a toupee and can come off. I am going to try a few different hair styles and colors. I am pleased with my first attempt.


I made a paper pattern of half his hair area then transferred it to thin poster board. I then cut two pieces of the fur and hand stitched them together. First sewing I have done in a very long time. Not to bad. And it was fun to see Geoffry develop a look.

Next, more hair and cloths.

Geoffry gets some specs!

Geoffry Glasses

Geoffry has gained some specs! They are not the greatest but they are not to bad either. Will work on better ones down the road.


Now I am looking for shorts and a hawaiian shirt! I think he might be an old stoner surfer dude!



If you have any suggestions please post a comment!

Geoffry - Tabletop Puppet

Rick here, first time posting to the blog. And as you can see, first post to the blog in quite awhile. Life seems to take us down different roads than what we expect.

Anyway, here is Geoffry. He is a tabletop puppet that I have been working on for a month or two(my time is usually limited). He has turned out better than I expected. And with anything like this, I learned some things that I will change next time around.

Special thanks goes to my wife Martha for helping me out in the painting department and with some design/sculpting. She is a full time artist and I tend to take her advice when she gives it in areas like this. :) Oh and thanks to her for Geoffry's feet! She wants to make him a pair of Teva's!

Here are some images of the different stages of building. This was the first time I have used Sculpey clay to this extent. It was fun to work with but my skills sculpting need some work!

Next is to get him some clothing and some hair! I am also working on a drum for him to play. Stay tuned! Will post more soon!
