Time To turn The Page

It is time to turn the page. In early April of 2009 I decided to try a New Hobby. Creating and Building Ventriloquist Figures. It was an exciting time for me, as I learned the ropes, and figured everything out. I have made alot of friends over the past few years, and I have received alot of help and advice from many in the Ventriloquist Community. I want to first off thank every one of those kind folks, who stood behind my dream, and helped me to accomplish it.

I will be closing this blog to all but an occasional future update, and I will be starting a New Blog in the near future. The new blog will be all about Game Design. I have started another journey, and another chapter in my life. I have been creating card and board games, and I have found a new interest, and a new hobby.

I have several games already published on The Game Crafter website, and I have several more in the works. The day to day work on ventriloquist figures has basically come to an end. I have one figure for sale on eBay right now, and one final Butler Character about ready to hit the auction block. These will be my last two ventriloquist figures available. So if you want one get it now before the last two are gone.

I appriciate all the friends, ventriloquists, figure builders and all of you in the ventriloquist community, who have shared the last three and a half years of my life. It has been alot of fun along the way.

I will post one final blog entry after I get my Game Blog up and running. So that anyone who wishes to keep up with my new adventures will have the link to do so.

I will also keep this blog live, as a reference to my work, and as a link portal into the Ventriloquist World.

Cheers, MontanaDan

Ventriloquist Dummy Cast Heads

Hey guys, I am still working on my New James Butler Characters, and I thought I would share a few pictures of my progress. There is still some work to do inside the heads for the controls, and I still need to attach the headsticks, but so far everything is coming along nicely. Below are some pictures of the two heads I am working on, one with brown eyes, and one with blue. I am doing both of these ventriloquist figures at the same time so they are about 75% done, and should both be completed next week. Look for them on eBay! MontanaDan

Ventriloquist Dummy Heads

Here are a couple of pictures of the James The Butler Character heads I am working on. I have already cut out the eyes, jaw, and the trap door. I did some patching on the heads, and formed the mouth pieces with teeth and tongues. Tomorrow I will fit the jaws into place, and do some work on the insides of the heads. MontanaDan

Ventriloquist Dummy James

Well it took awhile, but today I cast three new heads for my new James The Butler Character. I had some problems with the silicone mold, but it seems to be working ok. Stay Tuned! I will have a New Ventriloquist Figure ready soon. MontanaDan
