You may remember that I loved the show, Mister Rogers Neighborhood growing up, in fact I love it still, though it's pretty much vanished from the airwaves. A few years ago I thought it would be fun to illustrate some of the puppet characters from the Neighborhood of Make Believe. I didn't think they had ever been captured very well in books or on merchandise, and thought I'd see if I could do better. I'm sad to say that I didn't pursue it further, but someday maybe I will. Below are the highlights of my efforts, really just quick pencil sketches with some digital color.
