Modern Toss

 

BIOGRAPHY

Modern Toss are a couple of cack handed trouble-makers thinking up jokes and drawing them up for comics, greetings cards, books and animation. Prized by connoisseurs and collectors, their laugh out loud prints and artwork decorate toilet walls throughout the country. They made two TV series for Channel 4 along with an impressive stack of other short animations for the telly; in particular, Business Mouse, the daft as arseholes run ins of a foul mouthed entrepreneurial cockney mouse, proved a massive hit. Over the years Modern Toss have self published a whole rack of sharp and hilarious books, including the ever popular Work series. In 2014 a comprehensive appraisal of their groundbreaking work to date 'A Decade in the Shithouse’ , weighing in at nearly 5lbs, was hailed as "a contemporary cartoon classic" by someone at The Guardian. Their work features regularly in Private Eye, The Guardian, New Scientist and Esquire and bursts out occasionally in a crop of other magazines and newspapers.

In 2014 a Kickstarter campaign for their 10th anniversary book ‘A Decade in the Shithouse’ became the UK’s second biggest ever comic crowdfunding success, exceeding their target within 48 hours of going live. The book 'A Decade in the Shithouse' is now in it's third reprint and is described by the Guardian as a 'contemporary cartoon classic'. 

Their work features regularly in The Guardian, Private Eye, New Scientist and The Sunday Times Style Magazine..

"Badly drawn, utterly foul-mouthed, mean spirited and misanthropic... also very, very funny." The Independent on Sunday

"Modern Toss is the Bach of comedy." The Daily Telegraph

"Takes you to areas of the brain seldom visited." The Times

"A pure-gold anarchist's doodle pad with a rare quality - an imagination all its own." The Metro

"Barely serviceable drawings." The Guide

Modern Toss is the work of Jon Link and Mick Bunnage.

The Whistleblower Gallery team has been working with Modern Toss for over a decade. We are really happy to be working once again to bring you a stunning, irreverent, beautiful and funny collection of print and original work.
