Tim Allen Is Obsessed with the Paintings of Guided By Voices' Tobin Sprout
When he's not triggering libs with his politically incorrect documentaries or politically incorrect sitcoms, baby boomin' comedy vet Tim Allen has a fairly surprising hobby. Specifically, he's completely obsessed with the visual art of Guided By Voices member Tobin Sprout.

Don't believe us? As The A.V. Club points out, Allen sad down with the Dialogue Box to deliver a 17-minute missive about how much he loves Sprout's paintings.

It's a truly fascinating discussion where Allen describes his obsession with photorealism that emerged while he was in art school. Yes, the guy from The Santa Clause went to art school.

In addition to his work with Guided By Voices, Sprout is an accomplished painter and children's book illustrator. 

Allen added that he even commissioned Sprout to create a painting of the Home Improvement set. It's all the sort of thing that makes you respond with a quizzical "ruhhh?"
