2008 Toy Awards: Artist of the Year

Choosing five top artists of the past year is always a difficult task.  I like to look at the entire year's worth of work and choose those who have had a strong year...from January to December.  So, here are our picks.  And if you've ever wondered what these artists looked like, we found some photos to better familiarize yourself with them.
