Amos Toys

A collection of James Jarvis artwork for Amos

Amos was a company set up by James Jarvis, Sofia Prantera and Russell Waterman, and run by Jarvis and Waterman from 2002 to 2012.

It was best known for the toys that it produced from Jarvis’s artwork, but Amos’s practice also incorporated licensed graphics, cartoon strips, publishing, the curation of a music festival and the design of a crazy golf hole.

The graphic work presented here reflects Amos’s diverse cultural influences: agitprop, Bauhaus, Alfred Bestall, Conan the Barbarian, Kraftwerk, philosophy, psychedelia and Repo Man.
