Sam Toft - Same As It Ever Was Art Print. Sam Toft lives by the sea with her two lovely dogs, and a pond full of fish named after the Shipping Forecast. Today Sam works from a seaside studio, alone but for her dogs and BBC's Radio 4. It's a beautiful life, not without its ups and downs, and she feels grateful to be making a living from drawing a whole bunch of imaginary friends. Sam is surprised and delighted to see her dear Mr Mustard go from strength to strength.
