Jason Toews and fifi (the band)

Bob

Uh… Max, care to shed a little light on this artifact?

Sometime around the age of 10, I got a video camera for Christmas. I used it for years making live action and stop motion “action” movies with my G.I. Joe collection. At some point I decided to do a little project to take my skills to the next level- claymation! It was kind of a big deal in the late ’90’s and early 2000s. Naturally after seeing the fruits of my labor on film, I was pretty impressed with myself and vowed to make a whole claymation project series. I never did. And so “Bob” became an ersatz metaphor for my hobby after that point: a creation given life only to be sabotaged by the very hands of its sculptor.
