Introducing Roopert the Kangaroo

It's been a while since I debuted a brand new character, but after months of hard work I'm thrilled to introduce Roopert the Kangaroo:



Roopert represents a new direction for me, for while he's as large as many of my costume-puppet creations, but he's not a costume-puppet. He's a special style of oversized mouth-and-live-arm puppet inspired loosely by the animal characters in the Lion King Broadway show.

I'm hoping to develop a scripted performance around Roopert next year, but in the meantime he's available for general walk-around meet-and-greet. If you'd like Roopert to appear at your next event, he'd be more than happy to hop on by.

At long last, I can finally debut the official blog for Kevin Pittman and his Forest Friends. My name is Sheldon, and I will be the official spokesfox for Kevin and all of the Forest Friends here on this blog.

What can you expect to find here in the future? Well, I'll be letting you know about some of Kevin's adventures in the magical world of puppetry, reporting on some of his big performances, sharing tips and tricks about puppeteering and puppet building, and relaying puppetry news of interest to anyone living in metro Atlanta or anywhere in the southeastern United States for that matter.
