Charity Stars currently have three original artworks by Toyah up for auction, in aid of CALM. There are just 10 days left to bid. Click on previews of the art below for more info and/or to bid.

“Beneath My Feet” by Toyah Willcox based on a lyrical poem by the artist. “The Rose” by Toyah Willcox inspired by Amanda McBroom’s Song. “Cry Me a River” by Toyah Willcox inspired by Arthur Hamilton’s Song. Dimensions: 8×8 inch canvases inside 30x30cm frames. On canvas.

The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is leading a movement against male suicide – the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK. CALM runs a free and confidential helpline and webchat – 7 hours a day, 7 days a week – for anyone who needs to talk about life’s problems, as well as supporting those bereaved by suicide and working in the community to reengage with people before they reach the point of crisis. The charity actively campaigns via the media to spread awareness of suicide and challenge male stereotypes, using cultural touch points like art, music, sport and comedy.

Good Morning Whoniverse!

August 9th, 2012

The, soon to be aired, first episode of Series 7 (aka Season 33) of Doctor Who has more Daleks than ever before, and this weekend Toyah guests in the ‘BBC America’ documentary The Women Of Doctor Who – so now seems as good a time as any to post this!!! Skaro’s finest definitely have good taste (though their marketing techniques are a little extreme).
