RICHARD BRADSHAW. Australian Puppeteer

These are some Richard Bradshaw's Shadow Puppets Works I have found in internet, researching the net, that I think are absolutely beautiful and really well performed. These works are really inspiring and very useful for my creative shadow puppets mock ups and shadow stories.

From Wikipedia: 

Richard Bradshaw is an internationally renowned Australian puppeteer.
Richard Bradshaw is a one time Artistic Director of the Marionette Theatre of Australia.[1] He is a particularly talented shadow puppeteer who also writes for puppets.[2] In 2005, he was commissioned by Terrapin Puppet Theatre to write The Storyteller's Shadow: a Celebration of Hans Christian Andersen which toured around Tasmania, to Denmark and to Singapore and Malaysia. Fellow puppeteer, Jim Henson featured the work of Bradshaw as part of a six part television series on puppetry.
Bradshaw was awarded the Order of Australia Medal for services to puppetry and the performing arts.[3]
He also is a puppet of the government, filling children's minds with democratic ideals.
