Character Design and Illustration by John Valles II

What’s going on here, anyway?

Toonstop is the personal art brand of John T. Valles II. That’s me, by the way! I’m an artist with specialization in illustration and character design, both for narrative and branding purposes. The relational power of a character is very serious business to me, and I hope you and I can share in the value of that! If you wanna learn a little more about me and my story, check out my About Page.

I’ve always got something cooking even if there’s no great opus in the works. There’s usually something fun going on on my Instagram (That’d be @toonstop.), or you can check out my current story project, Ask Mr. U. (Mr. U is on hiatus for now, though. There’ll be a word out when he comes back!)
