The Wind in the Willows: Mr. Toad of Toad Hall

Mr. Toad was kind enough to pose for this little Portrait yesterday.  Immediately upon my asking, he sashayed off to freshen up, emerging blushed and burnished with the heraldic glow of Monarchy.  Here he is in all his glory... Mr. Toad of Toad Hall: Country Squire, avid sportsman, expert motorist, thespian  and wayfaring adventurer!  Do not look him in the eye and please refer to him as 'Your Grace.'


  1. i did illustrate the book cover years ago, though i havent read this story... i like your illustration.

  2. your illustrations remind me of Arthur Rackham's.. please take it as a compliment :)

  3. That is quite possibly the highest compliment anybody could ever give me! :)
