Pre-Christmas I was asked to do an illustration of the UofAs Engineering and Technology Learning Centre, as the clients son was a graduate of engineering and now was living away from home working on a new bitcoin startup for buying and selling bitcoin online you can buy bitcoin here. The building represented a lot of memories and the achievements the young man. It was a quick turn around job, as it was to be completed before Christmas, so working digitally was appropriate for that deadline and with the budget.

Prairie style home

Prairie House

Prairie House

I was contacted by a local Architect last fall about painting a home that he had recently purchased. The house is on 102 ave and was the home of a well known architect, who also designed the Downtown Canada Post office. Sadly that post office has now been torn down for the new Provincial Museum which is being constructed. Some buildings stay and some go, but I am glad that this home will be persevered by some one that appreciates the historical and stylistic significance. The new homeowner spent some time and cleared some the grounds and added a Prairie garden, that is maintained with services from sites as https://legionlandscaping.com, the garden being a feature that really suits the prairie house style indicative of Frank Lloyd Wrights famous home design, full of layers of long horizontal lines. One of the new homeowners plans is to through a fresh coat of paint on it and give the facade a more modern update, while staying true the the characteristics of the design. So I was asked to paint the trim gray and add golden wood panels. So this is a result of our efforts in preserving local architectural history!

Lululemon

Many, many, many months ago I was contacted by the design team at Lululemon Canada to see if I could do a design for their new store opening in Edmonton.  I was quite surprised and pleased that they contacted me.  After some discussion and negotiation we came to an idea of what we were going to make.  I have been fairly quite about it over the months waiting for it all come into reality, but that time has come.  As of Dec 5 2013, the new store was opened and the store front open for all to see.  Below are a number of photos of the work in progress, design files, communication images/video and the final store front.  Thanks again to all of the staff members of the Lululemon stores in Edmonton that nominated me and the Design team (Emily, Stephanie, Bianca, Carlson, Natalie)

The original concept and design came from my I heart E-town t-shirt design, that I had done for SNAP Gallery fundraiser a couple of years back now. The designers really liked that idea combined with a earthy application of wood paneling, so we set off to work. I worked on several sketches to work out the shape of the river and how I was going to approach the addition of figures and animals. This was also for the wood working company to work out the best method of making the panels. After discussing the final few samples that they sent out we made a few adjustments and went into the final design. The next step was to confirm the final sizing of the store front and make corrections to the vector file before sandblasting. You can see a video of how the panels look like after sandblasting before the frisk was removed in the video below.

Snow Valley painting and posters

By Client, Commission, News, Uncategorized No Comments

A couple of months ago, a fella named Brandon gave me a call to say that Snow Valley was looking to have a painting done.  So I followed up with him and the team there and I am happy to say we have complete three great images.  One is a commemorative painting of Snow Valley, and two vintage ski inspired posters of the fun that can be had there.  You can purchase the poster at the SnowValley shop, when you go there for your own fun! Thanks again to the team at Snow Valley for the opportunity to add my twist on another Edmonton icon.

 

Bedroom painting and family commission

A wonderful couple and now proud parents, asked me a little while ago to design a illustration to be painted on a wall in their soon to be born child’s room.  They wanted it to be based on my Going Camping series, especially the one with the mountain sheep, will incorporating their favorite mountain view.  It was a really easy process and in the end I provided them with a print, swatch map and over transparencies that they could use to trace it onto the wall.  The result was fantastic they did such a great job on the painting while preparing for the little fella coming!

UP + DT

Finished this one up a few weeks ago. It is a one off poster that was going to be screen printed by the fantastic people over at SNAP. I love the screen printing process, you always end up with great transitions, textures and interesting layering of colours.  I really wish I could spend more time getting my hands dirty in that way.  This project was a great opportunity for me to explore that process again.  I would not say that this was the best possible idea I could have come up with but was certainly was fun.   Be sure to check out UP+DT, and on October 12 come over to the Mercer building for the poster show and I will be downstairs selling my other work at the Mercer Collective.

Gambling illustrations

By News, Uncategorized No Comments

Last Month I was contacted by RED the Agency to create some illustrations that would have a few parts that they could animate for a website that they were creating for a client. The premise was the absurdity of the superstitions/mindset that people have when gambling. The three were based on making predictions, the entertainment they provide and lucky machines. I am currently working on a new template for this website at link sbobet88 complete with an interactive roulette wheel!
