He sponsored me for TF last year and he regretted every minute of it.

Toots was a senior citizen and lived in a care facility somewhere in the US. He was noted for being of large heart, quick wit and he did this all on only one leg. Apparently he was always harassing his caregivers, and told us about it in PSAEF.His son happened to find the Fark Notification email in his Dads computer, and dropped in to tell us the news.He will be greatly missed by the photoshopping community here at Fark.Good bye Toots.

This calls for a PhotoShop contest. What is Toots de la Footsjelly doing right now?!?

Oh, and thanks to the Moderators/Admin for making this thread a greenlit submission, that was not my intent in sharing this news, however I think that many non-TF members would appreciate knowing this. I don't think his son knows what he did by letting us know. If you highlight/bold Toots de la Footsjelly, the notification will go to his son, unless he has disabled Toot's email.

Toots.I hope you log on from the afterlife and view all this!

Toots liked to create 3D graphics also. He mixed his 3D creations in many of his photoshop entries.

Thrakkorzog: One of my favorite Toots shops from about a year ago. I still laugh when I see it.

Jeez, why did you just link to an image rather than include it?

I always enjoyed Toots de la Footsjelly's shops because they were generally insightful in an absurd or surreal. fashion.

I am surprised that he was that old  and he gives me hope that when I reach his age I won't become ossified or fixed in my thinking, but still enjoy the absurdity of life.

Damn, a TFer whose lawn I should be off of.

/Fare thee well in Ultrafark


Toots would never have told you to get off his lawn; he would have Shopped you, cut, paste, and suddenly you'd be in the SK/NK DMZ with a blindfold on.

Y'know, this really calls for a Photoshop tribute, where everyone remakes/reimagines one of their fav Toots PS (hotlinked to the O).

AssAsInAssassin: Well, that sucks. Toots is one of the names I counted on seeing in Fark Photoshop contests.

Here's hoping Yammering Splat Vector and Abe Vigoda's Ghost stick around for a long time.

What happened? Injury? Illness?


I think that YSV and AVG would appreciate your concern, but they are not in the same age category (especially AVG).

Toots was in a nursing home. He has been unwell for some time, from what I can gather. As I mentioned, he was an amputee, and he was in his '70's. The last few times he posted in PASEF he mentioned that his health was declining. One thing that was quite profound, to me, was that he lost his granddaughter "Danni" at the age of 19. He was a private person (and who shouldn't be on a website of strangers), but from my point of view, it was a turning point in his will to continue living.
This is only conjecture, with little other information.
It is nice to know that Fark can attract the very young to the very old.

When I go to Fark, the PS contests are the first thing I check. They brighten my day. I appreciate the time all the Shoppers spend that end up entertaining, amazing, angering and even revolting us. Toots de la Footsjelly will be missed. I will raise a glass in toast this evening. RIP Toots!

Time to break prohibition.  Two weeks ago, in the span of 24 hours I received word of the death of two family members and a childhood friend.  I went on a 36-hour bender, and when I crawled up out of the gutter I swore off all alcohol for 30 days, and that meant not celebrating a good friend's birthday nor my getting hired for a new job.  For Toots, though, I think that I open up a nice bottle of scotch and drink to his memory.  His posts always brought a smile to my face, and whenever he complimented me on an entry I knew that I had achieved a truly great 'shop.  He will be sorely missed. I only hope that heaven is real, because if it is they are in for one hell of a redecorting shock when Toots gets his hand on heaven's Photoshop controls!
Rest In Peace, you old 'shopper.

This was one of the first Photoshops that I saved of his, after he sponsored me. Initially I thought that the guy in the image was really him.
I came to understand I was wrong.
