“Health Goth.” “Athleisure.” “Post-Punk-Synthpop-Darkwave.”
While ruminating on these things my buddy Grant Worth and I made this video together during 2015. After a few hiccups… it came together. We filmed this video at the awesome Park Church Co-op in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Grant and I have been experimenting with old school hand drawn animation lately. You can see a few examples in the video.

Cryptid Miscellanea

Posted in andytoad, costume, drawing, mask, NYC by andytoad on August 22, 2013

Earlier this summer I was asked by illustrator Bil Donavan to take part in a mythology themed drawing night at the Society of Illustrators.  It sounded like fun so I gathered together some of the creature costumes that I’ve created over the past few years and took them to over to the Society. Working together with three models I created a motley crew of fantastic beings that were then drawn by the illustrators in attendance.  Such fun! It was such a great experience to see my designs come to life and be rendered in pen, ink, watercolor…  – with such amazing illustrative talent!  Below are a few images that were graciously shared with me by the artists.

Black, horned, and slender, with membranous wings…
