Have you met Roger Titley? I came across him when I was looking for inspiring ideas for making puppets. (That's a hint about the topic of an upcoming post.) He builds these scaffolding-like figures that can move much like the animals they represent.
These hand-held ibises are inspiring. I wonder if I could make a much simpler version. Hmm...
This giant dung beetle was built for the World Cup opening ceremonies in 2010.
He's also made a bunch of more realistic animals for various ads. From what I can gather, he's South Africa's answer to the Jim Henson Creature Shop. Roger was interviewed about his work here. What a dream job!
