Kevin Stark is a cartoonist, portrait painter, sculptor, toy designer, musician, photographer, producer, and entrepreneur and is most well known in Oklahoma as the proprietor of the Toy & Action Figure Museum in Pauls Valley. With over 11,000 figures, the museum draws visitors from across the state and the world.
As a freelance artist and owner of Stark Art and Yellow Lab Productions, Stark first started working on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle toy line in 1990. He worked as a designer for other toy lines over the years such as the Toxic Crusaders, The Mask, The Simpsons, The Pink Panther, Stretch Armstrong, Toonsylvania and Universal Studios' The Mummy, just to name a few.
Stark currently publishes a comic book and a daily comic strip, Geezer. Geezer is the story of a seventy-nine-year-old super hero. Preproduction has started on an animated series and a line of action figures. Citing that good clean humor is more difficult than racy jokes and bad language, Stark chronicles the dream-like adventures of a geriatric armchair commando.
Stark began to put together the beginnings of the Toy & Action Figure Museum in Pauls Valley in the year 2000. Getting its start from his massive toy collection, the museum opened in October of 2005 as the only museum of its kind in the world. Voted Best New Attraction in the State of Oklahoma for 2006 by the Governor's Conference on Tourism, with over 11,000 pieces on display, the museum has gone on to fulfill its mission of being a unique attraction for Pauls Valley and each year continues to bring people from all over the world to the downtown area.
