One year ago, I walked into Boston Children's Hospital asking them is they ever thought about using an artist to entertain the kids. It's funny how life works out so perfectly sometimes. Turns out, they were starting to move forward with such a program.  

This month, it's been exactly one year that I've been freelance drawing for the young patients there in the ICU units and elsewhere in the facility. Many of these children are very ill, but they have come to one of the best facilities in the nation and receive truly the best care possible. Over the past year, I've been blessed to draw for these wonderful little children whatever their little hearts and huge imaginations can create. They've been my creative muse that have fueled my passion to draw in ways I never could have imagined one year ago.

More importantly, the smiles I get when I draw something as simple as Dora the Explorer, or Spongebob Squarepants, or a Hobbit fighting a dragon... or any number of other wondrous, more complex and uniquely imaginative suggestions they give me

... those cute little smiles are priceless.  I feel blessed to draw for these little kids and their beautiful smiles of gratitude are an invaluable and unforgettable gift to me.

Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Tim Estiloz is an experienced cartoonist, illustrator and Emmy winning TV journalist who has been perfecting his craft and talent since childhood.

I've been drawing since I was old enough to hold a pencil as a toddler. I try to make my art style both unique and diverse by utilizing a variety of media to create both realistic depictions of various subjects; as well as my strong suit of creating a colorful and imaginative world of fantasy... that's often combined with a touch of humor that taps into the inner child in everyone.

I've also wanted to work in TV since I could put an empty box over my head as a kid.

My artist media of choice is pen and ink... but, give me anything that makes a legible line and a scrap of paper, and I'm a happy man.

I'm a trained artist with a degree in illustration and graphic design. However, much of my skill has been passed down from my family, many of whom simply loved to draw and create art.

My artwork has appeared in a variety of publications including inking work for various NOW Comics titles such as "Married With Children", "Speed Racer" and "The New Ghostbusters". My editorial cartoons and feature illustrations have also appeared in The Boston Phoenix, El Planeta newspaper and The Bay State Banner in Boston and much more.

As a TV entertainment reporter and broadcast film critic, I've worked for NBC, Comcast, E! Entertainment Television and many other outlets interviewing a variety of Hollywood actors, celebrities and Oscar winners. I love movies and if I could combine my love of film and art... my dream gig would be to work for Pixar one day.

Bottom line, I love drawing, especially for children and the young at heart. If I could offer any advice to anyone... it's to help those who need your support and use your gift of drawing to bring a smile to someone's face.

Life is too short - make someone happy.
