Obby - earthy creature - hand puppet

 This is Obby , he is a puppet created on the base of an existing illustration , Obby will be helping a therapist to communicate with their younger patients.

Children listen to puppets and communicate with them in lots of ways . Its well known that children can have conversations with puppets that they won't have with anyone else 

 

My customer required a visualisation of an illustration and the brief was clear - as close to the drawing of Obby as possible . 


                 

...a bit of My working progress , I love making tiny toes , creating the face was a bit of a challenge... 


   

To bring Obby to life I have used soft fabrics and materials and greatly enjoyed the making of all the little details and charms , following closely the illustration




Obby is an earthy creature ,a mischievous free spirit, with his heart in the right place 





Obby's head is moving by hand and his arms can be operated with little rings on the back of his hands
