SNB on Torrance TV ( w/ Colman tutorial only here on blog!)

For more info on how this interview happened, see the post "SNB filmed for Torrance TV Sept 24." We love Torrance... and that post lists a lot of the reasons why. On our website, our "Visit our Showroom" page offers a list of area attractions... and a map with local restaurants and points of interest.

Also just in... LA Weekly names Torrance's own WILSON PARK TREE HOUSE as a "Best of LA 2010:" http://www.laweekly.com/bestof/2010/award/best-giant-tree-house-1082058/

Best Giant Tree House - 2010
Treehouse for All's Tree houses aren’t just for Bart Simpson and the Little Rascals. The Treehouse for All at Torrance’s Wilson Park is for everyone (though it’s especially popular with toddlers on the go ...). Dedicated in 2006, the 2,500-square-foot wooden structure is California’s first universally accessible tree house in a public space, according to the Annenberg Foundation, which funded it. It offers winding paths, whimsical roof lines and lots of quiet corners for relaxing.... It also offers views of the expansive public park, which houses basketball courts, a baseball diamond, a running track, a roller-hockey rink and a duck pond. The park also is home to the Dee Hardison Sports Center, named for one of the city’s former mayors; it hosts youth sports programs, a weekly farmers market and an old-fashioned Fourth of July festival. 2200 Crenshaw Blvd., Torrance. (310) 618-2930. —Christine Pelisek


Our SNB - Torrance TV interview is now online. It's part of an episode of "Spotlight Torrance." This episode includes a walking tour of some historical homes. Torrance was founded in 1912... so you can visit parts of Torrance and see the development of Southern California right here in our little city.

To find the SNB interview... move the "seek" button to 18:30 on the clock. Our interview is about 4 minutes long. Our artist friend David Colman did a wonderful tutorial that day while making his drawing on the drawing board. I've added here on this post the little video clips I have so you can get a flavor of the tutorial since (sadly) this instructive glimpse into his creative process didn't make it onto the show.

I love how I make Stuart sound like he's 38 years old :)
