Tinker Fan Art!

Jeff Welborn and I recently had the opportunity to teach a cartooning class for Camp Forbing's Winter Program and it was a lot of fun! We did some "draw-alongs" with the kids in our respective styles (Jeff did step-by-step superhero art, and I focused on some TOOMASOOBA-esque cartoons).

There were a couple of young gals who, by the end of the session, were obsessed with all things Tinker. It's really cool to see your work connect with an audience and I was honored that they liked it so much. Below you can see some of their art...I better watch out, looks like I've got some competition!

TOOMASOOBA in Nashville

Talula Gallery
In December 2010, I headed to Tennessee to visit some friends and to check out the local art scene. East Nashville is home to eclectic galleries and shops that specialize in unique artwork...and I wanted to be a part of it, dang it.

I stopped by the awesome Talula Gallery, took a look around and dropped off a stack of bookmarks for folks to pick up. The owners were cool and, long story short, Talula is now carrying TOOMASOOBA prints in their store!

If you just happen to be in Nashville, swing by and grab one (or two or three)...check out their website for location info and hours. Tell 'em Jeremy sent you.

Fellow 4AFTER5-er Travis and his wife recently had a baby boy named Jonas, and he asked myself and some other dudes to help decorate the room, robot-style! Trav gave us cool little blank figures to customize, and we had a lot of fun with it.

To the right you'll see my contribution -- I think I did a good job putting a TOOMASOOBA spin on the little fella. I also chose the color as a nod to "My Name is Jonas" on Weezer's Blue Album. And he has a fancy little hat. You can never go wrong with fancy little hats.

You can see some other figurine awesomeness here and here. Thanks for the chance to snazz up the space, Trav!
