Custom Football Puppets Built for Honda Dealership in Knoxville, Tennessee

Last fall, I was contacted about doing some puppets for a marketing agency out of Knoxville, TN. As a Nashville native, I loved the idea of doing something for a client so close to home! So, the great team at The Draft Agency started describing to me their idea for a football season themed ad for a local Honda dealer.  I was sent two sketches for football puppets and couldn’t wait to get started!

Puppet Building All Starts with a Design or Sketch

I loved the idea, and loved the sketches even more. After a deal was reached, we started discussing the project more intimately. I had a conference call with their team the next week to talk about all of the finer points of the briefing. It was on that call, that the eventual performers of these characters gave me a sample of the characters’ voices. THAT was when I knew this was going to be a great finished product. Grace and Murray ( the football characters) were meant to resemble a middle-aged married couple. I loved every part of the concept, including the great character sketches they gave me to work from.
