    Thanks George,

    That's pure talent. I never knew you could do that with hand shadow puppets before.
    Sometimes I wonder who the old man in the mirror is....

    Lord, Grant me a good sword and no need to use it.

    Darryl, it blew me away. I like your new avatar. Looks like your little man is practicing to do shadow puppets.

    Great George!!

    Skilled hand puppetry is most effective - and that both amusing and charming too ... real nice thx.

    I recall a vid with a guy (Japanese?) who drew pics with sand, on a glass sheet which was backlit. Wish I had a link tho may have the vid somewhere. If I find it I'll post - it's in same category of skill.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Hmmm - found it but - it's 18Mb ...... so not sure I can spare the bandwidth to host it. Maybe someone has a link. "sandAnimation.wmv" was the file.

    Chris, here's a link with that file in it.

    I've seen his stuff in a commercial on TV, but I don't recall what it was for.

    That was great, George!

    Thanks!

    The shadow puppets were amazing. The sand animation was as well. I can't imagine the amount of practice that would have to go into either one of those to reach that level. It truly boggles the mind.
