Hey, I’m Toby.
I am a Swedish illustrator who came to the UK to grow and learn, both in art and in business.
There’s something about creation that can’t be found in anything else, and if I can bring some of that spark to others through the things I make that’s even better.
At the moment my passions lie in mixed media illustrations, visually exciting design solutions and in making books that are a just a bit different.
Besides images I make clothing and costumes, and when there is occasion I sculpt, build and design everything from packaging to rooms (so far that one has been in ice and snow) to signage to embroidery and more. I am always looking to broaden my practice and try new things - and if you are interested in collaboration please do send me a message!
Questions about commissions, licensing of existing work and any other inquires are always welcome (see email address below).
These days I live in southern England with my amazing partner and our two (very very fast) dogs.
Have a look at my instagram or twitter @TobyCurden for the latest updates and works in progress.
