Tony Barber survived being a member of the legendary Australian rock n roll band called Billy Thorpe and The Aztecs  and went on to become an artist, author, children's TV performer, motivational public speaker, paper sculpture designer,  teacher and mentor of arts and crafts and soft toy designer. Six  years ago he put a temporary hold on creating works of art and set about realizing his dream of totally redesigning the basic traditional easel. Not just for his own use, but for artists of every age, level of skill and medium.

Carl Surges has worked as a professional sculptor and animator for the past 40 years, doing work for Disney, Bradford Exchange, Twentieth Century Fox, Industrial Light and Magic, Warner Brothers and Universal Studios to name just a few. Over the last dozen years, Carl has turned entrepreneur by bringing to market his own inventions and products. Having worked with Tony Barber in Los Angeles in the 1980s, he knew he could not turn down the opportunity to work with him  again....especially on a product as "no-brainer" as the ARTristic Easel.
