A project that has been in the works now for a few years in now all wrapped up.  I was asked to create three paintings that were uplifting and warm feeling, based on specific dimensions for placement in the Cardiac Unit of the University of Alberta Hospital.  After a few rounds of sketches and discussion I painted these three beauties.[soliloquy id="1114"]

I had friends recently ask me to make a illustrate a image for their soon to be born son.  They wanted their favorite animals represented, foxes, owls and wolves.  I thought it best fitting to have the illustration set at night with a full moon for the wolf to howl at, owl to hoot, and foxes to be tucked away in a den.

Again this year I vended at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival and created a new print for the year.  This years theme was the parade of lanterns, a event that is done on the Saturday of the weekend festival, to show the festivals appreciation to all the different departments and volunteers.  I was able to pop down to the offices a week or so before to take photos of the lanterns and any of the new lanterns that were being made.  Which was great, because I was able to make sure that the print was very specific to this year with the new lanterns.


I also created a fun t-shirt design that I sold while I was there.

Fort Edmonton Park

By Client, digital, News, Uncategorized No Comments

Fort Edmonton is a local historical park, based on different time periods in Edmonton and houses great historical buildings and a fort.  I was asked to create some sort of over encompassing image that would represent the whole park.  Most of the time the park is represented with the Steam train or the old fort, but the park is so much more than that.  So I used a forced perspective approach for this and set things up in blocks of history while creating a bit of a winding walk through the park experience.  The image was to be used as a fine art print for the gift store.


Local Good logo

By Client, digital, News, Uncategorized No Comments

The Local Good is a neat organization here in Edmonton, they are a network of people that promote local and green living for our fair city.  For about a year they used my I Heart E-town graphic as a temp logo (with permission of course), at which time they asked me if I would do a customized version of it as a logo for them so they wouldn’t have to rely on Fiverr logo design.  I made sure to incorporate so many great local items into the logo and scaled up the elements to be readable at a small size. I even used the path of the river as a EKG pattern for a heart beat.
