I'm leading a mission team to Japan in a few weeks. Part of our ministry will be a puppet ministry, and I'm looking for some good puppets shows/scripts/songs to use in Japan. Can you point me in the right direction?
Admin reply: Hi Tom,
I don't know if my puppet ministry book can still be found in the stores, but I donated my own remaining stock to One Way Japan. They are the ones to go to for all puppet ministry needs in Japan:

Comments: With reference to the dancing men in japanese: a similar idea using suns and circles is featured in the manga Case Closed/Detective Conan where the protagonist is an extreme Sherlockian.

Comments: Hi Russ. I have really enjoyed your message board, your book on sketching, and the forum. I would like to see more of your sketches in your Sketchbook, but I understand the trials that life and family put on us to keep some things on the 'back burner'. Anyway, hope you get some time to post sketches. I am totally amazed at your skill and talent in sketching.
Best wishes. George
Admin reply: Hi George, Thanks for the kind words! I always keep my sketch stuff with me just in case. It usually happens unplanned!

Comments: Hello Stutler, after a long time I decided in going to sketch. I was a painting restorer and I came from art studies, but never realized how beautiful is sketching.
Apart of the results, it's really incredible. Sketching makes me happier, because, you know, in these moments while sketching I feel really free.
And the more I sketch the more I like!! And my wife too, I'm lucky we are in perfect sintony and we support and encourage each other. Now sketching is part of our life. we use to sketc everywher, everything, from simple kitchen recipes to cards, in any travel, while at work in spare time.
I thank you for insipiring me, my wife and to give and share all your hints that for me are pure gold.
And also I like japan and japanese culture, this is boosting my will to sketch.
Have a nice life, Stefano & Rita.
Admin reply: Thank you for your inspiring message! I imagine there is much beauty around you in Italy for sketching, not to mention all the great artists who sketched there in history!
