This one is my favourite!  I love that she's driving a goat, and I love that her coach is an acorn.  I have a thing for acorns.  The creativity of this really captured the spirit of childhood.  I wonder, what inspires you?

Oh! This is probably one of my favourites of your gallery so far. There's something inclredibly mysterious in caravans... Specially if the rider is a witch.
I can imagine this caravan suddenly popping out in the middle of an Arthur-Rackman-like forest... I often make the characters of my stories met with those in dark forest.

The puppet is so full of interesting details! Mmmm... Those bottles at the back part seem dangerously easy to steal.

I always feel like I could just step into one of your pieces or look out my window and see this caravan's shadow creeping by. So imaginative! :heart:

Very nice... especially the "mushroom" carriage. How did you get on in photographing this? It still looks a little fuzzy...

I'm glad you like my new puppet! And about the photographing, I don't know... I really tried, and your advice did seem to help with the Night Butterfly - shadow puppet. But this puppet gave me sleepless nights, nothing I did seemed to help.

The thing is that I don't really have the time for it, running my bussiness is all I do at the moment. Photographing is just one thing to many, I guess. Though I know it is very important to put time in, but that's the the thing I don't have the time....

Yes, I understand... well it definitely looks better than the first ones you photographed, so you're a step closer I guess. I wish I could help you more, I'm sure it's a simple and quick thing but I'd have to see your camera, lights, etc. Oh well.

What do you do with your shadow puppets? Do you just keep them around the house... tape them to the walls?? lol. I'm just curious, because I would flaunt them all over my place if I were you.

Well, most of them I sell. With the once I keep I just play once in a while. But I also make display stands for them so no need to tape them to the walls :)

LOVE all of the little details. I know that they must have been painful to cut into there, everything is so fine and detailed. Especially the carrot, love it all.
