Burnt Toast

Share This Story

Burnt Toast Creative is the working alias for Scott Martin, a Hamilton, Ont.–based illustrator. Scott’s work has been described as “playful cynicism,” mixing bright, fun designs with sometimes dark undertones.

Scott has become an internationally known artist and freelance commercial illustrator. His designs have been featured in numerous publications and campaigns worldwide, with a roster of clients that includes Google, Facebook, Dropbox and Red Bull.

Scott approaches his art with a goal in mind but always stays open to the idea that something totally unexpected could happen once he gets drawing. The key to Burnt Toast’s popularity is Scott’s instantly recognizable style, populated with characters that are fun, cheeky, and sometimes a little macabre, all rendered in his trademark non-threatening pastel palette.

Collective Arts was built on the idea that creativity fuels creativity and Scott demonstrates this in his daily work.
