Simone Legno is the Co-founder and Creative Director of tokidoki. Born in Rome, Italy, Legno,
drew incessantly as a child. The boxes of chewed, broken and unsharpened pencils he adored
as a kid were the beginnings of a passion for art that led to the eventual creation of tokidoki.
tokidoki started as Legno’s professional online portfolio and artistic diary while living in Italy,
where he showcased his illustrations, advertising and new media designs for various clients. A
partial list of these clients includes Volkswagen, MTV, John Galliano, Champion, Toyota,
Renault, Daihatsu, BenQ, Microsoft, Narcotic Bureau of Singapore, Telecom Italia, and TIM.
tokidoki means “sometimes” in Japanese. Legno, who has always had a deep love of Japan and
fascination with world cultures, chose the word because he feels “everyone waits for moments
that change one’s destiny, by chance or by meeting a new person”. Simone's special moment
arrived when his designs drew the attention of entrepreneurs Pooneh Mohajer and Ivan Arnold,
who spied the art on his personal website and convinced him to move to L.A. to build a brand.

Since officially launching in 2005, tokidoki has grown into an internationally recognized pop-
culture lifestyle brand and has amassed a cult-like following for its larger-than-life characters,

megawatt partnerships and extensive range of products from apparel and handbags to home
décor and even slot machines. tokidoki has collaborated with many brands such as Karl
Lagerfeld, Guggenheim Museum, Sephora, LeSportsac, Onitsuka Tiger, Marvel, New Era, Hello
Kitty, Fujitsu, Levi's, Smashbox cosmetics, Xbox, T-mobile, Medicom Toy, Major League
Baseball, Skullcandy, Barbie, Canon, Black Eyed Peas, and more.
As the creator of tokidoki, Simone has become a sought-after speaker around the world at
museums, universities and conferences, from MOCA (the Geffen Museum-Los Angeles) to the
Adobe MAX conference, UCLA, USC, the Flash Film Festival in San Francisco, Art Center
College of Design, Apple store in Osaka, Istituto Europeo di Design in Rome, Singapore Toy
and Comic Convention, Grafika Manila and many others.

      • Arthur Adams


      Arthur Adams, a self-taught artist, became a fan favorite when, at the age of 19, he left his job
      making pizzas for the masses to pencil the critically-acclaimed Longshot limited series, written
      by Ann Nocenti and published in 1985 by Marvel Comics. He has been in high demand as an
      artist since.
      Adams' highly distinctive and detailed artwork gained him considerable popularity amongst fans
      and editors, if not his inkers, and he's enjoyed being a cover artist, and the artist and sometime
      writer for miniseries, specials, and annuals. These days, in order to spare inkers the pain, his
      work is largely shot directly from pencils or inked by himself, with some exceptions.
      In his career, Arthur has worked on many titles, Batman, Superman, Spiderman, X men,
      Godzilla, Vampirella, Rocketeer, the Authority, Danger Girl, Excalibur, and the Hulk, to name a
      few. He also launched his creator owned, written, and drawn series Monkeyman and O'Brian in
      1993 with Dark Horse Comics "Legend" imprint. He also had a ten-issue run on an anthology
      series featuring the character Jonnie Future. The eight page Jonnie Future stories appeared in
      Tom Strong's Terrific Tales (2002–2004). More recently, Arthur has been working on Ultimate X
      for Marvel Comics with writer Jeph Loeb, and issue one launched in 2010.
      Adams has provided cover images for issues of the Justice League of America, Appleseed,
      Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Green Lantern, Hulk, Avengers, X Men, Red Sonja, Superman,
      Batman, and Vampirella, among other titles. In addition to his work in comic books, he has also
      produced popular commercial art, such as numerous illustrations for trading cards, posters,
      shirts, and various other comics-related merchandise. Outside the field of comics, he has also
      provided illustrations for various magazines, movies, video games, and worked in toy design,
      packaging art, and even a series of X-Men-themed Campbell Soup cans.
      Arthur lives in Northern California in the woods somewhere, like his hero, Bigfoot. When told he
      should have a "Web" site he went outside and tried to spin his own web. It was funny and sad all
      at once. We got him back inside and gave him his medicine.
