The Magic of Count De Mezzo

He didn't want to be prince or president. He didn't even want to be a Count.
He just wanted to share his joy of telling stories with wonderful puppetry.
Count De Mezzo kept the children entertained for hours.

The Count is smooooooth as silk, and very dapper. And he is obviously quite good as his puppetry.

Great illo as per usual, baby. Your style and the excitement that your characters instill in us is undeniable.
