The genesis of Blurtso

 

Blurtso the donkey was born when my niece asked me to make a stuffed animal speak. When she asked his name I said, "Blurtso, because he blurts things out without thinking." One day I began posting "blurtsoisms" (philosophical musings) on Facebook. Soon my followers began to ask for illustrations to accompany the musings. I bought a Wacom tablet, began to draw, and The Blurtso Chronicles were born. Ten years later Blurtso has a half dozen books, an online store (blurtsobarn), and numerous music videos. In the near future a plush toy will also be available. Blurtso the donkey and his best friend, Harlan the elephant, are dedicated to mindfulness and warmth of the heart. Enjoy!
