A creative art class – Making puppets

I want to introduce you to Larry. Larry is a puppet I made to represent a character I came up with. This was what my grade 9 class had to do: Come up with a character (personality, nationality, fetishes etc.), draw this character, and then draw a sketch of what their puppet would look like and how it would be made.

Finally they had to make this puppet and act with it in a puppet show for a drama mark!

Here’s Larry!

Introducing Larry: A shy, comic collecting male turned baseball loving flasher! He originally came from Benoni South Africa but in now living in the Bronx New York and doing his best to fake a New York accent. Oh, and wanting to be like his childhood hero was Mr T from the A team, Larry wishes he was black.

The puppet of Larry. Originally I was going to make the cloak out of a cloth with a polystyrene ball as a head and cotton wool dipped in ink for an afro.

Larry's head was made using tinfoil covered in plasters and then drawn on with permanent marker.

Larry, the shy reclusive, driven to flashing from an inordinate number of girls turning him down.
