Hello, Hermit!

Hey, how's it going? Found this little shell in a bead shop recently and sort of had to
whip up the hermit puppet to live in it.
Seen through my new magnifying lamp, upper left shows the reference image used to inspire Hermit's eye stalks. I added a tiny teacup handle and footing, both made from glue and paper, to the shell and painted a bit after how some shells are decorated in Nature. This one, half seashell, half teacup.

He is firmly secured to that strip of sand-covered landscape so his eyes can follow other creatures around without shifting his cup one bit.

Welcome, little fellow, to the Halfland sea!
