Friday Roundup- Sneezing, Coughing,Eyes Itching!

Kids love toys!

When I wasn't suffering the effects from the annual assault to my nasal passages there was plenty to keep this snot-nosed lad busy.

There were quite a few Doc Ed shows this week. We're still fine tuning the latest show for kindergarteners and it's going well. Karston is a big hit with the kids. I've added a few props to the shows because the kids respond very well to visual aides, that is, props like a red water pump.

This week was also spent working on character studies for the picture book I'll be illustrating. They're in black and white right now but color studies will soon follow.

There's also a little prop work coming our way from the San Antonio Metropolitan for the production of the "Snow Queen" which opens in November. This show was staged several years ago so they still have all the sets and props they used. More than likely the bulk of the work will be making repairs on some of the props and set pieces as needed. There is the possibility of making a new set piece.

A couple of years ago I made a very large oven and a cage as well as Punch and Judy puppets for their production of Hansel and Gretel. 

I have a feeling it'll be a busy fall. That's good!
