Hampy to me… what Pinnochio was to Geppeto
I remember when I created Hampy, then the first clay model, then in 2010, my first stuffed version of him, with a Halloween costume on.

I bought a drafting table to drawContinue reading “My Inspiration – Ted Knight – Too Close For Comfort”

Now LA does have the original first, “need some help”, for so many reasons of the samples. She still was not Hampy with theContinue reading “I Can’t Believe My Book Is On Amazon for over $285!!”
