New puppets and giveaway

Bueno... acá estamos. He pasado las últimas 48 horas pintando y cosiendo. Y sacando conclusiones. La principal: sobreestimo mi capacidad de producción/subestimo la finitud del día.
Espero les guste este nuevo puñado de títeres. Mi pareja despareja favorita son Chanchu y La señorita Pájara:


Well, here we are. I have spent the last 48 hours painting and sewing. And drawing conclusions. The main one: I overestimate my production capacity/underestimate the finiteness of the day.
I hope you like this new bunch of puppets. My favorites are Chanchu and Miss Bird:


La señorita Pájara / Miss Bird

Y ahora, nuevos bañistas para el sorteo del blog.  Sólo tienen que dejar un comentario con su nombre, ciudad y pais. Hay tiempo hasta el viernes a las 5 de la tarde, hora de Londres. Y voy a dar a conocer el ganador de estos dos caballeros ese mismo día. Suerte y gracias por particpar!

Now, new bather for the blog giveaway. Just leave a comment with your name, city and country. The comments will be open until Friday 5pm, London time. I will let you know the winner of these two gentlemen later that day. Good luck and thank you for participate!

Yo también he llegado a tus mismas conclusiones, con mi par de manos llego hasta donde llego, y las creaciones llevan su tiempo...
Los bañistas son estupendos, apúntame a tu sorteo:

Well, I am going to invest in one of your lovelies one day, but I am not averse to giveaways, especially when it is a such distinguised gentleman! You do such unusual and wonderful designs - and I do sympathise with overestimating how much work one can get done.

These two macho bathers in their swim suits are tres fantastique! I would be so lucky if they came to live with me...and if they did I would name them Hanz and Franz after characters from Saturday Night Live. Hanz and Franz's famous phrase was "We're here to...pump (clap and point) you up"!

I love your creations! You pay such great attention to detail and the colours pop!

I'm Amal - I'm in London too! Hope we have some more summery days in store... weather fit for those to bathers. They're so funny looking, they make me chuckle! They remind me of characters from Monty Python, or Faulty Towers, you know?!

...well, I' e balready told you that I'm simply in love with all your amazing creatures, so it should be great to win two of them, especially in a period like this one when I'm short of cash...;o)

So I'll keep my fingers crossed and, in the meantime, thanks so much for this generous chance!

my admiration for your work has no limits. If I won these handsome bathers I would faint dead away with the joy of my good fortune and I would cherish them enough to last 1000 lifetimes.

Hola, mi nombre es Mariana, soy de Buenos Aires. Conozco tu blog y tu trabajo desde hace muy poco. Me gustaría participar del concurso, pero más que nada aprovecho para decirte que te admiro mucho, sobre todo por no conformarte con lo que hacías y animarte a sacar a todos estos seres increibles que te habitan. Bueno, me quedó un poco ñoño el mensaje, pero es así, ja! Beso grande!
