ABC Meets: Toby Morris

Toby Morris is a 29 year old New Zealand born illustrator and designer currently living and working in Amsterdam.

In January 2009 he began a daily sketchbook diary to document his life and his observations of his adopted city, and published the results on his blog.

His new book, Alledaags, collects 333 of the drawings, covering everything from canal boats, hair gel and the madness of Queen’s Day to Vondelpark picnics, Zwarte Piet and blunt Dutch service. Both expats and genuine cloggies will find lots of familiar situations in this book which is full of genuine affection for Amsterdam.

Toby will visit ABC Amsterdam to present and sign Alledaags on Saturday July 10th from 2-4pm, on the ground floor.

You can see a sample of the drawing from Alledaags, check out Toby’s 2010 project, 200 People I Used To Know, and have a look at his awesome gig posters on his blog.

Toby created a window for our Amsterdam store on Thursday July 1st. See him and his friends at work on twitter.
