I’m impressed with your carvings and how well they look. I hope you get them on one of the shows. Post them in enough places and get their attention and who knows. Thanks for sharing

extraordinary work… great story and I, too, am surprised that they didn’t become prized possessions by these folks.

Now…. Ellen.. she would have hers sitting by her chair for every show!! :)

I believe those “celebrities” have a cadre of people around them “protecting” them from things.
Those folks, like the guard who said “No cameras, no tape recorders and NO DUMMIES” act on their own and Leno and O’brien might be happy to see such things.
Maybe the puppets need some publicity to get past those guys who decide for their bosses.

Not sure about the timing of this Jordan, but there was a movie that came out a few years ago called “Team America World Police.” The humor was very crude and all the characters were puppets. They made fun of terrorists, famous actors, and world leaders. It might have been possible that the public relations people became overly paranoid over any puppet references after that movie.

Great work on the puppets. I especially like the Conan puppet and the Connochio routine. That would have been a great one to see on the show.

These are some spectacular carvings. I agree with MsDebbieP…..Ellen would have that on her show daily.
Thanks for sharing them.

Great carvings, I’m sure once they see themselves like this in wood they will want to interview you.. they can’t be that far out of touch with reality. mike

Excellent carvings. You obviously have a lot of talent—too bad Conan doesn’t (sorry, I couldn’t resist)
