NEW! The Headless Highwheeler is a ToeHead painted on a maple violin back. It was purchased by The Pumpkin Pedaler Foundation, an organization that promotes autism awareness. This piece will be awarded to the winner of their second annual fall cycling fundraiser. The Headless Highwheeler can be mounted on a cherry base or hung on the wall.

“The Pumpkin Pedaler Foundation was founded to promote autism awareness, education, and research through community events in Columbus. Our goal is to engage participants in the conversation and call them to action while providing an entertaining background.”

Purple Sister ToeHead Has A Lollipop

The Brothers Get a Sister, And She’s A Cutie!

by Daric Gill

A few weeks ago I debuted The Brothers, seen here. Today, I announce their sister. Like her brothers, “Purple Sister” is another large-scale cut-out made from the top of a vintage secretary desk. Her surface is made from an oak laminate and has been freshly sanded. The original top had some very serious dents and scratches that had to be worked around. Check out the process gallery below.

NEW! “Brothers” ToeHead Illustrations Roar

ToeHeads Get A Pair Of Brothers

by Daric Gill

The latest ToeHeads to come on the scene are brothers. These 2 characters are large-scale cutouts on reclaimed wood that has been salvaged from an old secretary’s desk. With freshly sanded walnut surfaces, these colorful siblings have plenty of new life to roar about. Of course, we all know that they’re not as ferocious as they might think.
