Surprise roots!

When Emmitt Grant contacted me about the possibility of making over his Knee Pal, he included a picture.  I immediately recognized the Knee Pal character known as Lum Barr Jack.  The charcter was created by Lovik, and I would have surmised was built by either Craig or Keith.  But upon opening the head I discovered it was signed by Barry VanWert.  (9/95)  Barry, an excellent young craftsman, built figures for Lovik World for only a short period of a couple years, so this particular character is even more of a rarity than I realized.  You see him here as he arrived at my shop.  I'm going to try a couple different looks so Emmitt can decide which he prefers.  I'll share the final result with you in just a few days.
