I love creating my own mythology. The world is filled with modern day mythological creatures you can find them in every nook and cranny of your bedroom closet.
Tim Clarke Started his career designing and building puppets for the Muppets. Most notable were the Mystics and the Slaves that he sculpted and designed for the movie the Dark Crystal, guided by the incredible drawings of Brian Froud. He also worked on puppets for Sesame Street, Muppet Show and Fraggle Rock – for which he created Traveling Matt. After Dark Crystal was launched he garnered his first toy sculpting gig with Hasbro, creating the Garthim, Mystics and Lanstrider toys.
Tim Clarke, master puppet builder for The Jim Henson Company during the 1980s, is credited for creature design and fabrication supervision for The Mystics on The Dark Crystal, and he built Uncle Traveling Matt for Fraggle Rock from Michael K. Frith’s designs. Clarke’s first work with Henson was the fabrication of No’man and Melsoon for Iftah Ya Simsim at Kermit Love’s studio in 1977. He also sculpted designs for Dark Crystal action figures for Hasbro. A prototype for the Garthim figure is on display as part of Jim Henson’s office at the Center for Puppetry Arts “Worlds of Puppetry” exhibit. His other work in toy design includes the Sectaurs and Boglins toy lines.
