After our success with adidas Originals x Forces of Nice art show collaboration in Hong Kong this last September, adidas asked if we could do more work for them in Shanghai. We were given the store layout and the winter collection they wanted to feature this season. We came back to them a week later after our briefing with rough sketches for their approval and within 48 hours we were already into full production.

The illustrations took Carson a week of endless nights to complete while Denise took care of all the business meetings in Hong Kong. A few days before the launch, adidas flew Denise and Sophia Tong of OslerZoo Photography (we were honoured to hire them to help us photograph the entire process) to Shanghai from HK to help set up and make sure everything was looking exactly how we envisioned it.

Needless to say, the fine marketing folks at adidas were extremely happy with how it all turned out. Special shout out again to Sophia Tong of OslerZoo Photography for the super awesome photos and making us look good again. The custom adidas art and our Chairman Ting art collection is now open for public viewing at the adidas IFC store in Shanghai China until December 31, 2010. If you’re in the city go check it out.

Chairman Ting does Shanghai adidas Originals

We’ve been commissioned again by adidas Greater China to create custom adidas x Chairman Ting art for their newest adidas store in one of the hippest areas in Shanghai by the IFC shopping centre where the cool Apple Store is. They flew my business partner and fianc√©, Denise Cheung and Sophia Tong of OslerZoo Photography to Shanghai earlier this week to setup and make sure everything is looking good. According to Denise, the custom adidas art we did for them is looking super rad as we did a store domination.

Photos of all the custom adidas art we did for them will be posted up once we get all the photos from OslerZoo Photography. The snaps above are courtesy of OslerZoo while they were wandering and waiting for their flight at the Shanghai airport.

An epic 52 ft wall mural for VANOC.

Written by . Filed under Blogging. Tagged , , , . 1 Comment.

An epic wall mural project for the Vancouver Winter Olympics (VANOC) 2010 I worked on with Company Policy back in Jan/Feb 2010. We slept and ate at this warehouse for countless days to get it done in time.

The entire wall mural was captured via 4 Nikon D90s and shot in sync simultaneously by Steve Pinter. The final video projection was at a 1:1 scale and was exhibited at the Vancouver Art Gallery during the winter Olympics.

The project was handled by Company Policy. I dug out these iphone shots today because I just realized that I never published this project properly via social media space. This 52ft wall mural was one of the toughest projects I’ve worked on. At one time we worked over 72 hours on this wall without sleep and it almost killed me. I still get shivers just thinking about that warehouse.

Rough and loose concept sketches for Okamoto

One of many quick sketches I did for client approval before final art. I didn’t get a lot of time to work on this illustration piece and I didn’t want to over think it as well so I went for a completely visceral approach. I really enjoy the freedom of just creating and drawing out of pure emotion without the premeditated and crafted thoughts I usually go through when working on traditional advertising work. The Okamoto client really trusted and championed this piece and gave me complete creative freedom which is extremely rare in this business.
