Toby is a self-taught artist, born in the UK in the early 70s and is now based in Wellington, New Zealand.
With a history steeped in creative projects from producing electronic music throughout the 90s, to web development and web design, Toby has always started the creative process with a pen in his hand and scribbles on paper.
Switching to a digital medium for illustrating in 2008, his unique style is heavily influenced by graffiti, comic books and graphic novels. Toby still achieves that painterly look and feel in his work and by using vivid colours, capturing movement, lighting and a dose of his humour, he makes each piece edgy and dynamic.
Toby has been producing professional illustrations for the last 4 years and selling them as fine art prints for the last 2 years. Other work includes, one off private commissions, album art, skateboard graphics and the odd zombie t-shirt print.
