Toby Allen or ZestyDoesThings, that's me. Currently studying BA Illustration at Plymouth College of Art. I mostly illustrate my favourite things and also make a few Indie computer games. Enjoy your stay!
Firstly- Thank you so much for all the LOVELY birthday messages! Its so kind of you all! I don't check my DeviantART often these days, but I was very pleased to find lots of messages to wish me a nice day!
Secondly- As I said, I dont keep this little place updated, but I should do soon. Hopefully I will have some more monsters to show off soon as well as some other exciting things.
Its very busy in Toby-land so I don't have much to show.
Anyway, thank you everyone for our support and encouragement! Ill see you all soooon!
Thanks for the all love for the Real Monsters!
I was so pleased to find that DeviantART approved and shared the work! It means a great deal indeed- so thank you very much!
In case you didn't know- Prints of the monsters (and a few other things) can be brought on Society6 here: http://society6.com/TobyAllen
More monsters will be released soon, in sets of 8 on Tumblr. Keep your eyes open on here or follow my blog to not miss out on a single one! =)
Sorry I haven't updated in a while! Its been crazy in Tobo-land recently and DeviantART gets left out a little. Anyway, here's a quick update of things that are going on...
I'm currently working as an artist for a mobile game company.
I'm a proper working freelance illustrator now (eek!).
I'm also currently working on a personal project involving my Mushroom Fairies and I am hoping to make a storybook with them.
I finished my degree with a First!
I use my Tumblr blog much more than I do here so If you want an almost daily dose of me then head over there. http://zestydoesthings.tumblr.com
I also use my twitter a lot now so pop ov
