The simplest puppets

This is part of a design for a theatre event. One of the challenges I enjoy in graphic design is taking a minimal element and trying out different variations. In this case I took a very simple figure from a set of cardboard puppets shown elsewhere. Those puppets were, in turn, made with very simple rules: using a cardboard tissue roll and cutting out the eyes, mouth, nose... then gluing the removed parts as ears, noses...

So all variants start from the same model. And if I had also rotated the nose the number of permutations would be much bigger:

In this same publication we also find some photos of the cylinderfigurines:


A funny project, and yet another way of doing different things.
