A rather strange puppet

I made this puppet for my grandson. Its the first glove puppet with a stuffed head that I have made, and was a bit of an experiment.

The face is painted with gouache mixed with fabric medium and touched up with water colour pencils. The ears were made on the needlepunch machine, and so was the front of the glove. It has a knitted mohican haircut. I have no idea what it is, but I am sure Joe will think of something!

Lucky Joe. That face is gorgeous - wrong choice of word but you know what I'm trying to say :)
Where did you learn to do faces like this?
