Friends of Mr Toast - Jannie Ho

Jannie Ho is better known as Chickengirl Design. She does books, illustration, design and all of it is fun beyond comprehension. I just love this illustration with all my characters in vending machines and only Space Duck holding a quarter.

Check out her Website and her Blog and while you are at it hire her to do your illustration work!

Friends of Mr Toast - S. Britt

As part of my show at Monkeyhouse Toys, I thought it would be cool to ask some of my friends who are also illustrators to give their own personal treatment to my characters.

First up is S. Britt. I have admired Stephan Britt's art for years now and through the wonder of Flickr we have become friends. His work never ceases to amaze, the way he blends retro ideas with current illustration is amazing. And I can always tell I am looking at something he has done, it just has that special quality.

Well the snow is piling up and that means it is time to leave Connecticut. Thanks Rosa for showing Mr Toast a great time.
