Toast in Shoes!

This is a birthday plush I made for my friend Phil. The backstory is one night a few of us were at a restaurant doodling and I somehow came up with this ridiculous character of a toast in shoes. For some reason Phil instantly loved it and it became an ongoing character. So I had to attempt to make the plush.
I saved the placemat we all drew on from a separate occasion, just last week, with the many silly variations of "toast." I don't know how long we spent drawing toast and cracking up about it like the little nerds we are. I need to scan it in and post it, maybe later today or this weekend.
Toast in Shoes!!!!!! :)
 Update: Here are the doodles and variations of "Toast in Shoes," drawn on placemats by Ale Carloni, Rad Sechrist, and Phil Craven. Such gems here include Toast in Boots, FrankenToast, French Toast, Toast with Booze, Toast in Luge, Toast singing Blues, Toast with a Bruise, Toast Douche, etc etc.
Ridiculous. :)
