So my good friend (and child psychologist) just moved into a new office in Dallas, TX, and wanted to spruce up her space with some bright and fun artwork for the kiddos. I felt honored when she asked to add some TOOMASOOBA-ness to the walls and was happy to fix her up with a couple of prints.

I should have my Etsy shop set up in the next few weeks with all kinds of awesomeness such as the meantime, enjoy the photo!

Lewis and RoBoy, just hangin' out.

Spreading the TOOMASOOBA Word...

Boomabot at Minicine
Fall 2010 has definitely been a successful period in TOOMASOOBA's short history! I'd been toiling away in semi-seclusion since TOOMA's inception, really trying to shape the direction and overall vibe of the work. Shreveport's first ever indie arts & crafts show called "Maker's Fair" seemed like a great place for the public debut, so I jumped at the chance to exhibit. Held over two Saturdays in October and November, it was a success all around -- sold a number of prints, shirts, plush, etc., and met a ton of new friends in the local arts community!

Our 4AFTER5 group show opened at Artspace on November 18th -- after planning the exhibit for well over six months, it was rewarding to see it all come together. There were plenty of congratulatory high-fives to go around, let me tell you. Want to see some photos from the opening? Click here.

Meanwhile, Brad Campbell and I were honored to show some illustration work at the American Rose Center's Christmas in Roseland over the holidays. And on December 11th, I took part in "X-mas Under Da Ground", a one-night film/art/music event at Minicine in downtown Shreveport.

All in all, a busy (but awesome) couple of months! I already have a few cool opportunities in the works for 2011, when I hope to spread the TOOMASOOBA love far and wide. Keep an eye on this here page for some sweet announcements, will ya?

Welcome to the TOOMASOOBLOG!

Hello friends! Yowza, TOOMASOOBA has been chugging along for over a year now -- and things have really begun to pick up steam as of late.

Attending Shreveport's Maker's Fair and participating in several recent art shows has really helped raise the profile and gotten my silly illustrations out to the public...the feedback has been positive, and I appreciate everyone who has expressed interest along the way.

Now, instead of using the Facebook fan page exclusively for updates, I've decided to start an official TOOMASOOBA here we are!

The new year will bring many new and exciting developments to the TOOMASOOBA universe...Stay tuned to this page for all the latest. Oh, and while you're at it -- don't forget to join the Facebook group and check out the Toomasooba website!
