    Posted on by Drew

    The chilling time or year is upon us and the puppet guru has a non-stop schedule for performances.  Starting today, Oct. 22nd, I will be in Lancaster with several stilt characters.  The following week, several different outfits, dinos,  and puppets will be making some local appearances.  Then on the 29th I’ll travel back to the Tryon Equestrian Center for their spooky evening.  As for Halloween itself I’m not too sure, but as always I’ll try to enjoy myself as much as possible.  Have a spooktacular time my loyal followers.


  • Fossil Treasure A Labor Day To Go Down in History

    Posted on by Drew

    Well Labor Day is officially here and I have been working tirelessly to try and make a historic, or perhaps a prehistoric, dent in the 2016 North Carolina Festival Season with ‘Dakota and Friends’.  This endeavor is just beginning, so if you are in or near Rowan County, Surry County, the Mt. Airy area or any other location with a fall festival then check the line-up to see if our dinosaurs are going to make an appearance.  Labor Day marks the final day at our Hickory location, so stop on by and check us out.  Thanks for all the support everyone and lets move forward into a great holiday season.  Ok, break time is over… back to work.

  • Festive Child Matthews Alive Comes Alive

    Posted on by Drew

    The summer is nearly at an end, but things are still looking up for the puppet master.  Two seasons ago I thrilled audiences at Matthews Alive with my rendition of ‘Peter and the Wolf’.  Now I am going to return by popular demand with an original show I call ‘The Underwater Museum’.  I don’t want to give too much away, but for my loyal followers I’ll be performing Saturday and Sunday with this wonderful show.  It’s interactive, it’s mime, it’s fun, and of course it’s puppetry.  Come on by and see.  And if you are early enough to catch the morning parade on Saturday, I’ll be walking with one of the dinosaurs from Dakota and Friends.  Enjoy what remains of the sunny season and I’ll see you in September.  Below is a little hint for those who can’t stand a good surprise.

  • Dino Eye A New Dinosaur Age

    Posted on by Drew

    Greetings friends.  As you may well know I have been working alongside Ed Bounds for a month now and have been learning the ‘Dino’ trade while going from library to library in the southern Virginia area.  Our first real test of my skill will be at the Lock City Comic Con in Stamford, CT.  We’ll be up there all weekend, so if I have any fans from that area that are gonna be there make sure you stop by and say hi.  In the meantime, have a happy Independence Day and always remember that freedom should be fun.

  • Mardi Icon Beads and Masks

    Posted on by Drew

    Bonjour my faithful followers.  Tonight the grand puppet man himself will be walking stilts at the Sheraton Hotel in Uptown Charlotte to commemorate another close to the popular Mardi Gras season.  I always enjoy such festivities, especially since I was able to visit New Orleans just a few weeks ago.  So if you’re on the guest list and wanna sport a mask and have a bit of folly, stop on by later this evening and maybe I’ll throw some beads at you.  It won’t be too hard to find me, I’ll be the 8′ tall clown with shiny adornments and glowing juggling balls.  If not, there’s always next time.

  • Asian Art Icon NCTC Is In For a Treat

    Posted on by Drew

    My good friend, Lazaro Memije, has commissioned me once again to help his kids out with some fabulous puppet props.  Once more an Asian themed show, I will be creating a Japanese style dragon, several masks, and an elaborate headdress.  If you are a student, or know one, at Northwest School of the Arts in Charlotte keep a keen eye out for my creations.  In the meantime, have a festive Mardi Gras, a respectful Black History month, and a sweet Valentine’s Day.  Later!!

  • Icon Thumbs Up A Fantastic Person and Professional

    Posted on by Drew

    I love to inform my fans as to the wonderful local talent I have worked alongside, but this young lady stands higher than most.  Emily McCurdy has assisted me and taught me so much since my college days until now.  She has such a sweet and kind disposition, but has such and acute and fine talent for puppets and sewing.  Emily this one is for you.  Happy New Year.

  • Santa Thumb Another Winter Arrives

    Posted on by Drew

    Well everyone, Lion King is done and December is here at last.  If anyone wishes to see pictures of the puppets I created new videos and images are uploading soon.  If you want to see the puppet master in person, feel free to stop by and do so.  Tonight, Dec. 3rd I’ll be at the tree lighting ceremony in a brand new stilt outfit at South Park mall.  But if the weather is too much of an issue, perhaps this Saturday, Dec. 6th, in Charleston, S.C. where another winter celebration is in store for me.  So far things are pretty steady and I hope all my followers have a wonderful holiday season.  And here is a small pic to start it off right.  Keep dreaming.
