Technically I am done with Art Shows this year. I think my first one next year is Farpoint. Next year are my usual shows of Farpoint, LunaCon, Shoreleave, and DragonCon if I jury into each. I might have one or two others to add.
In doing so, I need to figure out what I would like to do next year. There are always a couple of things I sort out during the year that get added into the mix.
I have been thinking about doing a Firefly puppet set for quite a while. I think I might have it all figured out. But after I heard the comment about “puppet show in the backyard” now I have to make them. Deciding whether to do a set of hand puppets or the large ones.
I am working through my head some new monster type puppets that I think I am going to introduce along with the usual Phluzzies.
The dolls are going to make a comeback this year. I had mostly puppets last year but after a talk with Wendy Froud at NYCC, I have an itch to do the anthropomorphic Victorian dolls (Not calling them Steampunk because I don’t know if I am going that direction.)
Might make a puppet or two based on anime characters. Or maybe some dolls.
Am working on the geometry of what is know as a chibi sort of doll. Same for some stuffed animals that are not puppets which will be a first.
I might have to finish up a few critters that I found in the not quite done box. I have about half a dozen bodies that are only so far along. Some of them are fail experiments at the time but I think I can salvage them.
My goal for the next year is NOT to be rushing right before the convention.
Also I do plan to put some stuff up for sale on Esty this year to see what might happen there.
I open the floor to you my dear reader, based on what I have done before, what would you like to see me do? Remember this is blue skying so just about anything goes except recreations of established puppets.
I am grateful for ideas that work.
