Wow!!! Mr. Toast!
Wow! I went to L.A. times/Target Bookfair at U.C.L.A. on Sunday. I met Dan Goodsell, wonderful artist and creator of Mr. Toast (www.Mr.Toast.com). Bought his beautiful new book PARADE that really show off his genius. Dan is the one who inspired this blog. I love package design , especially food packaging from the 40's ,50's & 60's. When I found the book Krazy Kids' Food , I went CRAZY! Dan & His friend Steve Roden wrote the book which documents their huge personal collection of packages. i had the book for at least 2 years before i realized that Dan had a website: www.theimaginaryworld.com & the rest is history!
so here's a pic of my new Mr. Toast doll poppin' outta my toaster next to the book. On another note, the Welcome Home show at the Santa Monica Airport Arena 1 gallery closed on sunday. Next up: Art Queen, May 13th in joshua Tree and June 9th a i.d. workshop at the Santa Monica Museum of Art . We will be making I.D. tags and bracelets outta cardboard (of course).
