Character Illo: Mr. Toad

I've been thinking about some of my favorite Disney experiences this week. One of my favorite rides — both as a kid and as an adult — is Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. Pairing my love of the toad with my love of vintage childrens books illos and Mary Blair, I am aiming to create an illo of Mr. Toad that is a little bit cute and a little bit retro, while paying homage to the story and some of the Disney history.

Step 1: Pinboard Inspiration

Gathered up a bunch of illustration examples from Toad to Mary Blair to some general texture inspiration that I may incorporate into the environment Mr. Toad will stand in.

Step 2: Character Concepts

Sketched version of cute Mr. Toad

Shapes are in!

Finally done! Hello there, Mr. Toad!
