The Toyes – Website Illustrations and animated music video for “Smoke 2 Joints” Character Design, Cartoon Illustrations of the Band Members, Illustrations and Flash Animation By Ian David Marsden It was a great pleasure for me to create illustrated cartoon versions of the band members of The Toyes as well as designing a whole bunch of other fun characters such as smoking and dancing trees and several aliens in their UFOs for the animated music video for the classic Toyes Song “Smoke 2 Joints”

I also created a whole series of illustrations for the official website of The Toyes which were also really fun to create. There is an illustration or character for each of the song titles on their latest album. toyes-bandsite-marsden       toyes-website2-marsden Character Design, Cartoon Illustrations of the Band Members, Illustrations and Flash Animation By Ian David Marsden
