Pablo Latona has performed all over the world as a magician, juggler and hilarious entertainer in general. When he told me he was looking to get some puppets made for Canberra’s Harlequin Children’s Festival, I shot my hand up in the air and yelled ‘let me do it’. The Lost Pockets are a cross between puppetry and costume. With Pablo’s initial concept in mind, I set about designing the look of the puppets, then used a combination of thermoplastics, fabric, foam and paint to bring each Lost Pocket to life.
