After The Show
As a continuation of yesterday. I spoke to Robbie after the show to ask about his career in being a puppeteer and such. He didn't have a website, mainly because he is a local around this town and doesn't need a website. He's been doing these shows for a few years professionally now, but he told me he's always made puppets ever since he was little. I asked him about the kinds he had, and among the ones he eagerly showed me was a raven puppet. He said he didn't make it, as sometimes it was harder to make some puppets rather than find them. Amazingly, he also found it fitting to give me the puppet. (Although I think he did so out of desperation, the day care didn't talk to him at all after the show. He seems lonely). It's rather cute, I think I'll dress it up a little for the holidays, like giving him a Santa hat or Antlers. As a final note, even though he didn't have a website he does have an e-mail. I'll be keeping in contact with him, mainly because it seems like he doesn't have anyone else to talk to.
