    I really love this guy. He’s so excited to go on stage with his big red bow tie. You did a great job of combining carnival and ventriloquism into his expression. There’s a little Vaudeville thrown in there too. I especially love the placement of his nostril and his pencil thin handlebar mustache.

    I can’t tell you all how obsessed i am with anything having to do with old vaudeville, circus sideshows and ventriloquists. I took this to my first show but it didn’t sell. I may have it framed.

    He reminds me of sideshow “harkers” who would stand outside the freak shows and girlie shows.

    Now that will explain my obsession with the short lived series “CARNIVALE”. Geez, that show was amazing.
