The Food Ditty Production

 This is Barry Black, a hand puppet I made for Art Director Jen Newfield on the production of a live-action music video, The Food Ditty (which is soon to be featured on He is my first hand puppet :D about 2 ft tall and made of fur and foam... and love!

                                            Here's my best initial sketch of Barry Black.
And here's one of the Food Ditty stars, Ellen Wroe, sporting the pork rind costume I made for the production. I never thought I'd make a pork rind costume in my years... what a trip.
