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.
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.
The ToeHeads are a group of illustrations that imagines what the world would look like full of characters made from big toes. They live, work, play, and explore in all the fun and crazy ways we do. Join them as they play out their lives in all the complexities of our world and beyond.
I remember taking field trips as a child toThe Center of Science And Industry (COSI). The long bus ride seemed to take days, but we were always rewarded with a kid’s museum built for fun, tinkering, and science. Even as an adult I am in total wonder of this place. Its magical atmosphere seems almost otherworldly with creative possibilities.
I imagined a day when I was an adult and I could make such splendid futuristic things…
