Artist Series - Day 43: Alex Toth

Again, if I go back to the cartoons of my childhood, I owe a tremendous amount to Alex Toth.  He designed 75% of the characters I loved as a little boy.  Jonny Quest, Space Ghost, Thundarr the Barbarian, and of course, The Superfriends...the list literally goes on and on.

The official Alex Toth website

There is an amazing three-book biography series that features Toth and his work:  "Genius: Isolated", "Genius: Illustrated" and "Genius: Animated" (comes out this Spring!).  Highly recommended, you can read about the guy and they've collected so much of his work across comics, animation and personal stuff.
