My work falls into five broad categories.
Integrating engineering with aesthetics
Marionettes & Others
I'm known worldwide as a marionette builder but have a long history with mouth puppets, rod puppets, shadows, Vietnamese Water-Puppets, automata, and large costumes or stage puppets.
Largely for theater, still photography, and events, I have been making costumes with puppeted elements, lighting and rigorous use (acrobatics & tumbling) for about 20 years. built for ease of wear, comfort, and to impress.
Sets & Miniatures
From prop-objects, stage weapons, and technology to models, miniatures, set-design and built environments, I have been making objects for film, photography, and theater for well over a decade.
Drawing & Comics
Illustrations for book and album covers, comics and games, posters and flyers, comics and graphic novels, concept and character development--even some animation; more than 30 years experience using a vast array of media, from Traditional to digital.
Sets, Characters, Mechanics
Costumes and character design, world-building, theater sets and dramaturgy, mechanical and structural design on one hand but also design for brand identity, packaging, presentation and promotion on the other.
