Tic Toc Croc

This summer, I had the distinct pleasure of collaborating with puppeteer, Eli Timm. He worked as part of the direction team for the Newman Summer Theater Conservatory for their production of Peter Pan, Jr.  For the character of the crocodile, I designed a puppet that we blew up to 3 feet long and constructed out of cardboard, complete with foam teeth and glowing eyes. Eli really brought Tic Toc Croc to life; every time he would poke his head up out of the pit, a little girl in the front row would scream. A mark of a successful puppet/puppeteer, I think!
