Color Your World

It's time to bust out that 96-crayon box with a built-in sharpener and add some color to these TOOMASOOBA creations! I put together a few coloring sheets that you can download here in PDF format...and I'll also have them as free giveaways at upcoming TOOMASOOBA events.

If you or your kiddos happen to create a masterpiece worth sharing, send a photo or scan my way and I'll feature your art on the website. Have fun with 'em, friends!

Hector and Claymore sheets...Eureka is available too!

Art History #2: Artscene

Long before the days of TOOMASOOBA, I was always up to some sort of cartooning craziness — comic strips, mini-comics, and more. In 2001, I was asked to chat on the local cable access show "Artscene". Want to hear what this college-aged creator was involved with at the time?

Well then, click here to download an edited 13-minute audio interview if you dare (15 MB, mp3)...below are several screenshots from the televised broadcast.

Many thanks to my buddy Doug Paton, who stumbled upon the last remaining VHS recording of the show last year. I was very excited to get my hands on it and make a digital copy for the archives — it was quite a kick to experience this blast from the past!

For more "classic" work, see Art History #1.

State-of-the-art "Artscene" intro graphics.
In the interview hot seat. I considered posting video as well, but I looked like
a huge goon. Trust me, the audio version is much better.
