CHARACTER COMMISSIONS


Most animals built are originals, though some commissions have been for existing characters. Here are our friends who were based on the designs of others.

Among them are the original Jim Henson character design for Big Bird (below), a toddler-friendly incarnation of Rat Fink by Kustom Kulture artist Ed ‘Big Daddy’ Roth, Peppa Pig from the British animated series, a sheep (if you please) based on a page from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s ‘Le Petit Prince’, Clifford the Big Red Dog from Norman Bridwell’s book series, Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree (and the boy), Pooh and friends. Star Wars’ Yoda, Muppets' Grover and of course, Kermit the Frog
