Tight lipped

The "Box Car Bob" figure shown with Keith Lovik (see "Talking heads" 5/29) belongs to Bob Steininger and was recently delivered from Keith to Bob. Then when the interview was scheduled, Keith asked to borrow Box Car, so the figure was promptly repacked and returned to his maker for the interview.

I'm not surprised at this exchange, because as a figure maker myself, I know it is difficult to have groups of figures on hand for random photos. I normally finish a figure and pack it up the same day it is finished. There's about a 5 minute window of opportunity for photos which is why I keep my camera in my shop.

Bob said, "I heard it went well and Keith sent him back. Box Car Bob and I are working together, although Box Car is a little tight lipped about the interview."

    You're pretty good at taking the pictures and posting them. I guess it is all digital straight to computer. LeeDean

    That was one of my favorite figures. I always thought he had such a great face.
