About The Artist
Wickford Artist Guy Cassaday
Guy’s extensive and diverse career in Product Design and illustration has contributed to some of the most significant American toy concepts in the last three decades.
Upon graduating from Art Center College of Design with a B.S. in Transportation design, Guy was hired by Tonka Corporation. The ideal setting of Lake Minnetonka, MN was the inspiration for his redesign of the iconic Tonka Mighty Dump Truck and other construction vehicles, bringing to life his love of vehicle design. A brief stint at Playskool in Chicago led to a long career at Hasbro, Inc., where he designed GI Joe vehicles. Guy’s love is still automotive design and illustration.
Throughout his career he has made time to pursue his own art and most recently he began working in acrylics, creating landscapes, exploring and refining his fine art techniques, and capturing the beauty and whimsy of New England coastlines.
