Here are a couple of puppets that I recently built for Jim Mayer. Jim has been a member of Jimmy Buffet’s Coral Reefer Band since 1989, but since 2002, he’s been playing children’s music as Uncle Jim. Go on over and find out “Everything you ever needed to know about Uncle Jim on one single page”, or get even more info at his website, Uncle Jim Rocks! I like Jim’s motto of “finding Joy and Wonder in everyday life”.
Martin and Sammy started as voice characters that Jim developed and even used on his most recent album, Let There Be Fun. I had the pleasure of helping him bring them to life as puppets. Martin is the straight-laced intellectual, and Sammy is the carefree rocker. Here are some more photos of Martin:
And here are more photos of Sammy:
And you can see their video debut with Uncle Jim here:
