When I was a kid I loved watching Mark Kistler’s Imagination Station on PBS. I remember looking forward to the show because his style and personality really resonated with me. I particularly loved the last segment of the show where he had this huge cartoon mural that he’d work on for about 10 minutes each week with a sharpie. Always creating new sections of funky worlds of spiral staircases inhabited by wacky creatures..
I was in Borders the other day checking out some drawing books and I was surprised to see that he’s got a few nice and thick drawing books that rock! As I was thumbing through them I was overcome by a wave of nostalgia. When I got home I looked him up on the web and found he’s got a pretty cool website too. If that wasn’t enough, he’s got an actual streaming video of one of his shows for free viewing! Awesome. It doesn’t look like he’s changed much over the years … other than replacing his drawing/space suit covered with pen & marker holders with some red suspenders. Same great personality though.
