A Super Boy battles a Super Foe….while coloring :)

A good friend of mine has an amazing little boy named Landon, full of love and compassion. This little super hero happens to have cancer.

Our super hero just received a special package from me.
A coloring book featuring him as the hero and his cancer as the foe, and the epic battle that happens.

Please visit this link to learn more about Landon and his story.

This Week’s Color-A-Page: Swiss Sechseläuten Spring Festival!!

In the United States the 15th of April is a dreaded day….TAX DAY. I thought about drawing about that…but how boring is tax day? So I sniffed around the internet a bit and found this great Swiss holiday!

ColorAPage_Sechseläuten

The Sechseläuten (Zürich German: Sächsilüüte) is a traditional spring holiday in the Swiss city of Zürich celebrated on the 3rd Monday of April, since the early 20th century. Following the parade of the Zünfte (guilds), the climax of the holiday is the burning of Winter in effigy, in the form of the Böögg, a figure of a snowman prepared with explosives. The custom of burning a ragdoll called Böögg predates the Sechseläuten. A Böögg (cognate to bogey) was originally a masked character doing mischief and frightening children during the carnival season. Popular tradition has it that the time between the lighting of the pyre and the explosion of the Böögg`s head is indicative of the coming summer: a quick explosion promises a warm, sunny summer, a drawn-out burning a cold and rainy one. The shortest time on record is 5:07 minutes in 1974, and the longest in 2001 with 26:23.
