As a personal project, I wanted to try something completely outside of my wheelhouse. Then I happened upon a website called It wasn’t long before I started working on designs for a puppet character and a few months later Kram was born. I worked closely through email with Kevin Gorby @ Luna’s Puppets to turn some of my rough sketches into a fully functional puppet.

The basic concept behind KRAMTalks is to present hard to deal with concepts through the lens of a gruff yet thoughtful monster named KRAM and some of his friends. Not necessarily intended for children audiences, KRAMTalks strives to ride that line between education and humor in a thought provoking and non-intimidating way.
