In honor of Alex Toth's Birthday, we announce "Creator's Day"
On this day 86 years ago Alexander Toth was born.
In the profession he chose to make a career in, his art, his life's work, was initially thought of as a throw-away - mere guides for animators or entertainment for people in a monthly comic book. Something to be consumed for a short period of time before something else new was brought out into market to replace it.
But there is something about a creator like Alex Toth and the multitudes of others who brought something different and unique beyond the work-a-day output. Something extra special and enduring. No one can bottle or nail down exactly what it is that Toth and creators like Jack Kirby, Dan Decarlo, Doug Wildey, Iwao Takamoto, John Romita, and so on, did specifically. What is known is that they brought their own vision and creativity beyond the disposable work-a-day experience. Something beyond just cashing a paycheck and moving on.
For fans, Alex Toth's lifetime of art created a legacy of awe, entertainment, and inspiration that continues to this day. A once throw-way art has become a permanent record for countless multitudes to enjoy and be inspired. Other creators continue this and follow in each other's footsteps to bring inspiration and entertainment in new ways.
So in honor of Alex Toth's Birthday we at Tothfans would like to make a suggestion – We declare June 25th “Creators day” in Alex Toth's honor.
What is the idea behind “Creators Day”? The thought is to take this day every year to bring new awareness, discussion, celebration and recognition of creative visionaries like Alex Toth and others. Artists and writers, both past and present, who work behind-the-scenes (and/or in front) in bringing joy and excellence to the creative/entertainment arts in animation, illustration, literature, movies, and comics.
And to kick-off 'Creators Day' on Alex Toth's Birthday we have Eric Toth's special post.
Eric said this about the drawing, "This is a birthday card for my sister Dana circa 1972. My Dad made many personal cards, notes and letters to us and our Mom over all those years."
So post something (Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram or Facebook) and let us know who inspires you. Add #creatorsday to your posts to share. Thank you and happy Creator's Day!
