Inspired by a Lovebird

       Willy was an obnoxious little bird, he bonded with me alone and would bite everyone else he got near. Including my cat and Girlfriend. We used to joke about how he would fly over and land on you, Bite You and  say "Puncture" as he flew away. Actually he could't talk and he turned out to be a girl after all. We  gave him away before finding that out. Although willy was attached to me and no one else i still enjoyed his big personality, and how we used to joke about his "voice"....
       This mechanical puppet was designed to capture his Head movents, Bite and personality. The mechanisms were inspired directly by those used on some of the muppets. Here is a work in progress showing of what makes him tick.
