Chloe Pink™ Every Other Daily: 2/28

Did you see the Oscars last night? Did you hear the winners' speeches? Everyone seemed to be thanking many people....their supporters! We all need them you know. (Not just actors.)

So, I dedicate today's cartoon to all you supporters out there. You know who you are! The teachers, the coaches, the parents, the friends...Anyone and everyone who has ever been there for another person. Young or old. During good times and not so good times to show that you care...To give a much needed boost of support. To pat someone else on the back. To tell someone to follow their dreams.

I've been lucky to have supporters of my creativity all through my life. From my parents to a few teachers to the person who gave me my first shot in the ad agency business.

Daily I have my family, my friends and my Chloe Pink family. This weekend, I had the support of several professional performers who helped me at the Young Audiences workshop. I was totally outside of my comfort zone trying to learn more about Arts In Education performances. It amazed me to receive real guidance and support of several incredibly talented YA performers I met at Woodruff Arts Center this past weekend. Thanks you guys!

This helps you grow in life. This helps you reach towards your goals. With the support of others. So I dedicate to this cartoon today to all you supporters out there. We, me, you, him, her, she, they couldn't do it without you!

Chloe Pink™ Every Other Daily: 2/23

Ten things you may not know about Chloe Pink™:

1) Chloe Pink has been in Sharna Fulton's brain since she was seven or eight years old. She was first actually put to paper in 2006 at Myrtle Beach (several years later.)

2) Chloe Pink's best friend is Pete, a Scottish Terrier Mutt. He's always got her back. That's how you know he's her BFF.

3) Chloe Pink is the cartoon spokesperson for girls. She believes in herself and wants all other girls to believe in themselves, too.

4) Chloe Pink will share the stage with Owen Green in the next "Doodle 'n' Dream Coloring Book." Coming soon -- because boys should follow their dreams, too.

5 Chloe Pink has other friends, too: Brooklyn, JenBall, Maria Chocolata and Owen Green.

6) Chloe Pink has a National Director of Sales and Development. Sounds important, huh? Her name is Kelly Liddell and CP couldn't do it without her. No way! No how. Nuh UH!

7) Chloe Pink loves to hang out at the cafe with Pete. The name of the cafe is "Cow and Beanwater .

8) Chloe Pink is accepting of all people and animals, etc. She's anti-bully and pro good vibes!

9) Chloe Pink believes that creativity is the key that unlocks every girl's (and boy's) sense of self confidence. She and Sharn' talk at schools and Girl Scout meetings and book stores and cafes all over Atlanta to encourage and show kids how to tap into their own creativity. Contact to find out about having CP visit your group.

10) Chloe Pink has rainy days, too. But that doesn't stop her from following her dreams! And it should NEVER EVER EVER stop you!

Chloe Pink™ Every Other Daily: 2/11/11

Thank you to Abby Liddell for her help with today's cartoon. You see, it all started when her mom, Kelly and I started calling our tee shirt company, Big Frog, "Big Toe." It was just a silly thing. There was no deep meaning to it. It just happened and the tradition continues... Every time we have to order a tee shirt. We say, "Time to call Big Toe."

Well, it just so happens that earlier this week, seven year old Abby was reading her mom's emails and saw one from me that said, "Time to call Big Toe." A few minutes after I sent that email to Kelly, I got this one back in my email box. It said:

"Hi I just wanted to tell you I saw your Email and you said big TOE it is not big TOE it is big frog. love:abby."

Not to be outsmarted by Abby, which is often the case, I had to be quick on my feet--no pun intended. So I emailed her the following response:

"Dear Abby. Okay. Okay. I was wrong. You are right. So where is Big Toe? Maybe that's where Chloe Pink goes to get a pedicure?"

And at that point, I was halfway done with Friday's cartoon. I thought to myself, "Hmmm, what design would Abby put on her big toe? The answer was obvious.

A peace sign!

You see, the girl loves peace signs. She draws them constantly on her notebook, her sketches, in her autographs she gives me. I know. My fridge is covered with her artwork. She also has a bunch of tee-shirts and I'm sure stickers and lots of other fun stuff with peace signs, too.

So, thanks Abby for all your help and inspiration with today's cartoon. And also, thank you for believing in peace and spreading the word about the importance of it! You make Chloe Pink proud.
