Art for Kids – Trevor Romain

Filed under: beanquest, kidwork — Brian @ 6:47 am

On Danny Gregory’s blog (which some call “Everyday Matters” but he just seems to call, “By Danny Gregory“) there is a story about Trevor Romain – a guy who left the advertising world to do what he thought he needed to do.

After an experience with a child in a South African field hospital that will make you cry if you read it…

…I promised myself that I would never waste a second of my valuable life. That I would use my creative talents to change the world for children.
But I didn’t.
I went into advertising because it was safe and the money was good and everyone told me that it was almost impossible to make a living writing and illustrating children’s books.
I believed them.

What little I’ve read of Trevor’s blog is about the wonderful things he does for kids in his daily life. And you can buy his books and videos from his site – things like “Bullies Are A Pain in The Brain,” “Facing Fear Without Freaking Out,” and “Taking the ‘Duh’ Out Of Divorce.”

From his bio, “Trevor sees himself as Monty Python meets Dr. Seuss at Jerry Seinfeld’s house in Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood.”



  1. I really admire people who find their “bean” and are brave enough to use it so energetically. Sounds like this guy gets it.

  2. I’ve had Trevor bookmarked for a couple of years, but rarely think to visit his site. Thanks for the reminder.

  3. Sometimes I think that if I could just steal your bookmarks, Eric, I’d save myself a lot of meandering around the Internet.

  4. You might as well take ’em; I don’t seem to be using ’em like I should!
