Working with the wonderful New York City-based company Puppet Kitchen I aided in developing concepts, final designs and was head painter on the finished puppets featured in an exciting birthday party stage show that the San Diego Zoo produced in celebration of its 100th year in the summer of 2016. The completed 25 puppets still roam the grounds of the zoo entertaining patrons in intermittent parades throughout the year.

Once again collaborating with comrades at the Puppet Kitchen I worked on concepts, designs and final paint for a 12 foot tall elk. This puppet was commissioned to celebrate an unveiling of a new series of Magic the Gathering playing cards called Kaladesh at an event in Seattle, WA produced by Siteline Productions.
