Our books and iPad app teach step-by-step drawing with a unique twist - drawings start with a butt shape. Believe it or not, this approach is grounded in science, using the principle behind the Torrance Test of Creative Thinking - start with a fixed line and see what you can draw with the initial constraint.
We aim to inspire creativity by making learning to draw fun and engaging. The scaffolding we provide allows children’s imaginations to run wild. Children (and most adults) invariably find humor in this most universal of shapes. Kids love wisecracks about butts (sorry, couldn’t help myself :). We take advantage of silliness that is innate by directing it toward creativity. And, by making drawing easy, kids gain confidence.
We think creativity and confidence are crucial ingredients for healthy, happy kids.

Through my work in the tradition of collage I am pursuing the very personal obsession of creating narrative scenarios in small format. Using antiquarian books, makes the work at the same time an exploration and a deconstruction of nostalgia.
We create our own past from fragments of reality in a process that combines the willful aspects of remembering and forgetting with the coincidental and unconscious.
On a general level, I aim to illustrate this process that forms our inner landscape.
Animated Artwork of the Day: Providing context for his most famous work of art, The Scream, Edvard Munch wrote in his diary under the heading “Nice 22.01.1892”:
I was walking along a path with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.
Inspired by Munch’s inspiration, Sebastian Cosor set out to set The Scream in motion.
