John Toth's "fashion education" started in London, where in between shaking his hips at various nightclubs, including the bacchanalian drag-fest KINKY GERLINKY and the riotous and truly unique DAISY CHAIN, he trained with Vidal Sassoon for haircutting and coloring, and with the seminal, post-punk "street style" salon, ANTENNA, where he learned the Monofibre hair extension technique.

He then moved to New York City where, after a brief stint working at the downtown boutique of stylist Patricia Field, he worked for many years in the fashion industry as a makeup artist for the runway shows of designers including: Vivienne Westwood, Thierry Mugler, Betsey Johnson, Geoffrey Beene and Mitsuhiro Matsuda. And on the sets of  various magazine editorials and advertising campaigns with photographers including: Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, Steven Klein, Annie Lebowitz, Patric Demarchelier, Steven Meisel and Ellen von Unworth.

During that time he also became involved with the last of NYC's truly "underground" nightclubs JACKIE 60 (1990-1999), and his drawings were frequently featured there for various themed nights. Some other legendary nightlife establishments that have also shown his work include THE SOUND FACTORY and PORK, which was held at the infamous "leather" bar THE LURE, and more recently at EGG in London, which includes the one-nighters: TRADE, BERLIN-BERLIN and GOLD DIGGERS.

His drawings have been published in THE OMEN, MARQUIS, DRESSED TO KILL and LASH magazines, and have appeared on the television show BLINDSPOT.

As an artist he is self taught and does everything painstakingly by hand. All drawings displayed here are done on acid-free, archival quality paper using the mediums of pen, marker and colored pencil. Some are embellished with cut paper or fabric.
