You know the type — that doodling cartoonist type. Every time there is a pen and paper on the table, they will be sketching something down, with a mysterious smile, giggling quietly and making funny faces. Vlad Kolarov is no exception — however, he has built a career out of his funny habit. If you are no Internet stranger, you’ve probably already seen his work. It might be a Yahoo ecard, or a funny cartoon on some web site, a greeting card or even his online portfolio. Vlad has been around for some time.

Randy Glasbergen (1957-2015) was not only an amazing and hard-working cartoonist, he was also an incredibly kind, knowledgeable and helpful friend. He left us way too early and unexpectedly, but we still think of him and his amazing contributions in the field of cartooning.
Below is an interview we did with Randy in 2002.
Vlad Kolarov is a cartoonist, humorous illustrator, designer, and animator living in Canada. Born in Rousse, Bulgaria, he became one of the “Wind of Change” generation cartoonists after the collapse of communism in his native country. Hired by the largest Bulgarian newspaper publisher, 168 Chasa Ltd (168 Hours Ltd), Vlad created the first Bulgarian comic strips: Birdie and Phil the Cat, which appeared in the 24 Chasa Daily Newspaper (24 Hours). In 1998 Vlad moved to Vancouver, BC, and became a full-time freelancer. His cartoons, published by numerous newspapers, magazines, and websites – including Reader’s Digest, Yahoo!, and Regards.com – are available through the Internet. He’s currently working on various projects through his company Cardsup Greetings Ltd., and also operates one of the largest cartoon licensing websites, www.eToon.com.
