Today my work will be featured on a segment of a television show called “Artful”, produced by Monument tv. It will air at 8 am MST and then again at 1 pm on the BYU tv channel, and then it will be available for streaming after that on the BYU TV website. While I haven’t yet seen it myself, the other episodes are beautifully and sensitively done, and my experience with the production team was truly delightful and meaningful. I hope that you will have a chance to take a look.

The Puppet Pages
I have completed and installed four different pages about puppetry for The School of the Transfer of Energy. The main page is under the work heading, hover over it and there are three additional pages, including drawings, and the script for The Two Deaths of John Beartrist Laceroot. I hope you enjoy them, and thank you for visiting.

Puppet Theater Pages in the Wings
I am building a new group of pages for The School of the Transfer of Energy Puppet Theater. In the meantime here are a few pictures as an appetizer.

Below is a small puppet of a red-bellied woodpecker. This fellow has a minor role at the end of part one of the play The Two Deaths of John Beartrist Laceroot, performed by The School of the Transfer of Energy Puppet Theater. It is carved from red cedar and is operated by a system of strings, weights and elastic.
