Some Slow Dragon progress:

I’ve been laid up for a few days so progress with anything has been slightly delayed but last week I did get round to thinking about the Dragon Puppet. So far I have just played around with paper and scissors. I am basing the first version of puppet on the old woodcut of the Henham Dragon and it’s going to be just a simple articulated 2D shape.

Ah Ha! A Puppet Challenge beastie in the making! How exciting. Well done for getting started. (You'd be surprised how many on this project are only just getting underway! I guess the deadline is the best incentive!)
