Global Community Series Introducing Author & Artist Phillip Martin
Color the World with Artist Phillip Martin
It all started with some very kid-friendly Cartoons. In the beginning there was a clip art site for teachers and students. People all over the world found it, loved it, and used it in their classrooms, home schools, and for Sunday School Lessons. Now, there's just no telling where the art might show up. It's taken on a life of its own and I follow where it leads me. Where will Phillip's next Community Mural be?

A Taste of My World Cookbook by Philip Martin
"The smells and tastes in these recipes bring me back to people and places around the globe. Each dish is more than just food. There is a story that goes along with the recipe. So, not only is there a wonderful taste of the world to savor with each bite, there is an extra warmth in my heart. I hope you will enjoy a taste of my world."~Phillip Martin, Artist, Photographer & Author
