We can’t believe we finally wrapped up our biggest hand painted mural project to date. 100′ x 19′! Pinch Me If You Can was commissioned by the False Creek Fishing Authority to help celebrate and kick off this year’s Spot Prawn Festival. We honestly wouldn’t have been able to pull this off if it wasn’t for the fearless helpers we had.

We’d like to take this opportunity to give a huge shout out to the following people, Kenji, founder and creative director at Gamomo Creative lab, Efrain Perez, Aiken Lao, Shay Klassens, VNSTNO, Alex Beim, Hubert Kang, Annie Chen, Pierre Dalphond and everyone at the False Creek Fishing Authority who always greeted us with smiles and kindesss. Also a big shout out to Stu Ross who made this whole project happen!

We’ll have a time-lapse video available soon as we’re working around the clock to finish other mega projects we are currently working on! Read More »

We’ll be prepping tonight with the amazing help from Kenji Rodriguez from Gamomo Creative Labs and our amazing intern extraordinaire, Aiken Lao. We’ll be painting from Friday to Saturday and then a little bit on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Come by to say hi!

It’s a sink or swim mentality but the past 2 months have been quite intense. Projects have been piling in non-stop which is a good thing but also a little nerve-racking. Fortunately, we’ve been getting lots of help at the studio from our amazing intern Aiken Lao from UBC’s Sauder School of Business. She’s one of those rare hybrids that possess the ability to illustrate, design, shoot and write. For the past 2-3 months, Aiken’s been an amazing asset at the studio helping out Hubert Kang, Annie Chen and us! Keep checking this space. Lots of new projects in the works that we’ll eventually share. We promise! ;)

Happy Friday! Here’s a quick little doodle to take a break from all the projects we’ve been working on. Yes, it’s another piece for our on-going ‘productive procrastination’ series. Have a great weekend everyone!

Apple Pencil 2.0 was born out of necessity.

Written by . Filed under Blogging. Tagged , , . Comments Off on Apple Pencil 2.0 was born out of necessity..

Had to modify the Apple Pencil this weekend after a solid 5-hour drawing session to meet hard deadlines. In my opinion, the Apple Pencil is just way too thin and slippery to grip properly. It started to hurt my finger as it’s constantly pressed against the finger as I draw. So this little DIY rubber band solution totally did the trick. I know there are aftermarket accessory grips out there but trust me, don’t waste your money. Just grab a few rubber bands and you’re good to go.

Fun little side note: Photos shot in this post was from my Google Pixel 2 XL. I’m constantly in awe of how amazing this little camera is on this phone. And no, I’m not paid to endorse Google.

Here’s a screen grab of what I was working on. It’s WIP and I can’t wait to show you the final when it’s done!

This piece came out from a very large illustration we’re working on for a client (which we’ll share at a later date). The visual just came and had to be drawn and finished. Well, that was a good 1.5 hours of what we love to call as ‘Productive Procrastination’. Follow us for more regular updates on Instagram.
