(Made in my spare time in 3 weeks in Aug-Sept '16) It would've been Jim Henson's 80th birthday in September 2016- So, as a tribute I made a stop-motion 'Jim Henson' from wine-corks, wood and paper. I was inspired by my friend and tallented puppet maker Jamie Marks (www.jmpuppets.com) who is The Muppets biggest fan, so I asked him to make a 'mini Kermit' and to add the vocals. The excellent Danny Ryan (www.dannyryansound.com) arranged and performed some music based on the Muppets most famous song. The bench and the pose are based on a memorial statue of Jim at the University of Maryland. The shirt he is wearing is a copy of one Jim wore in one of his earliest publicity shots. We miss you Jim, but you still inspire us to 'keep believing and keep pretending'
