Beth Ditto

Beth Ditto - Portfolio. Neil Hughes Puppet Illustration.



Made for an exhibit called ‘Popped’ at the Manchester Whitworth Gallery. The concept of the show was for artists to capture pop icons through their mediums.  See more at

I was requested to demonstrate my craft process for the visitors during the opening of the event. As my pop icon I chose to produce a model of Beth Ditto from the band ‘The Gossip’.  A year later I met Beth Ditto and showed her the image, thankfully she was delighted with the outcome and appreciated that the dress was made from a novelty thong.
