We’re so stoked to see our graffiti installation featured in the latest Gray magazine (issue No. 31). This project came to us this past summer and it’s still one of our most favourite projects of the year. It was crazy fun working on this installation. Big thanks again to Kenji Rodr√≠guez-Tanamachi for helping us.

Bricks, a shipping container mural for Powers Construction

One of the most fun projects I’ve worked on this year so far. A commissioned piece on the side of a shipping container located right across from my studio at 1000 Parker in East Vancouver. This piece called ‘Bricks’ is for Powers Construction.

The project came in fast and furious but I still took the job since I have a soft spot for murals and especially when I get to go shopping for new paints! Read More »

New movie poster design and illustration I did for Jameson Whiskey’s First Shot produced by Kevin Spacey and starring Adrien Brody, a Trigger Street Productions. The movie will premiere in Hollywood LA this Saturday June 26th. We fly down to LA this Friday from Vancouver, just a few days after we land from our 2 month stay in Toronto. We hope to see all these famous faces there this weekend.

I was commissioned to design and illustrate was for Stephen Tempier’s winning script called ‘Boredom’ and the creative development was just based on the text of the movie which I worked on while on vacation in the Mediterranean (I know, what a hard life). Every word on the poster was also done by hand to match my quirky hand drawn illustrations. Here are a few photos from my work process. Video to release soon by the folks at Jameson. Read More »

After 180+ hours of studio time and 25+ hours of prep work (Thanks Freshbooks!), our KGMS large scale mural project with Henriquez Partners Architects is finally wrapping up. We’ve spent the past few days packaging all 15 panels up for final art delivery for Tuesday morning. We’ve got exactly 5 more panels to package up for tomorrow but we’re excited that it’s finally finished. This project was a bigger undertaking than we originally thought and have learned a ton from working with such large scale metal panels along with using enamel paints and in combination with KRINK markers and spray paint (KRINK and MOLOTOW markers apparently don’t work well on spray painted surfaces. Who knew!). We’ll be sure to post more photos up once it’s installed at the Kenneth Gordon Maplewood School location. We’re also very thankful to have had Albert Law document the whole project which we’ll post on this site soon.

For now, check out some of the panels in the studio and them getting packaged. A video will also be available to show our production process. Read More »
