As it stands you cant add 2 images to a ToolStripMenuItem

You can only assign one image at any one time, you could however change the image depending on user actions such as setting the image property to an image list with your 2 images. and could then use the mouse over and mouse up (Or any other properties for that matter) and change the image depending on the state.

Heres an example. Add an imagelist to your form and have your 2 images.

    Private Sub ToolStripButton1_MouseDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles ToolStripButton1.MouseDown
        'You could have the image change when the mouse is over the menu item
        ToolStripButton1.Image = ImageList1.Images.Item(0)
    End Sub
 
    Private Sub ToolStripButton1_MouseUp(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles ToolStripButton1.MouseUp
        'You could then have it change back again to the second image
        ToolStripButton1.Image = ImageList1.Images.Item(1)
    End Sub
