Bearded Bogwallop

Just last year I stumbled upon the opportunity set forth by the Jim Henson Studios to create and submit a creature that I imagined could be found living in the land of Thrall. There was one winner chosen and 10 runners up. I was absolutely thrilled to be honored as one of the 10. I have been a Jim Henson fan since early childhood and this recognition was confirmation that I am heading in the right direction.

The Bearded Bogwallop

Fancybread – One of a kind Sculpture , approx 7″ tall/posable

I loved the first movie, “Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” starring Gene Wilder. At one point in the storyline he quotes the words “Where is fancy bred, in the heart or in the head? To my young mind I heard “fancybread”. Sounded delightful and delicious to me so on the day when, in a particularly pleasant fit of creative playfullness I created this little guy, I asked him his name the immediate reply was “Fancybread”. If you want a more profound answer than that, I can think one up and get back to you later.
