Kick-starting the week off with this fun little illustration called ‘Dawg Gone It’.
Been trying to build up a bigger body of personal work while juggling a million commercial projects has been hard but rewarding. Dug up this older sketch in my sketchbook and decided to give it a go. If you’re interested in a print, drop us a line. We might make a few prints for the holidays and you can always visit us at the studio store in the West End. We’re usually here Mon – Fri from 10am – 6pm.

Here’s a closer crop version. Can’t really make up my mind on which version is better. Full illustration or closer crop?

Wanna see the illustration process? well looky here. Hit that play button below.

The rough concept sketch. Nothing beats the feeling of drawing on paper with a good old-fashioned pencil.

Pacific North Weave Timelapse video

A short but fun time-lapse video of the mural we created in collaboration with Six Hundred Four and EVO CarShare. The mural is located at 160 Water St. in Gastown Vancouver. This was a real fun piece to create as no projectors were used due to the weird location being at the entry and exit point of a parkade. Instead, we used a grid system and free handed the entire piece using Molotow markers. The mural took 2-3 days assisted by Aiken Lao and Mo from EVO.
Video was shot, cut and edited by the good folks at EVO Car Share.

Happy Friday everyone!

The Broad. One of the very best contemporary art museums we’ve visited.

We just got back from our holiday. A super chill holiday on a cruise, the Norwegian Bliss (The biggest ship to dock in Vancouver to date) where we completely unwinded for 5 days cruising down the pacific coast, visiting Victoria, San Francisco and finally LA where we spent 3 days exploring the city. There we visited The Broad, a fairly new contemporary art museum in downtown Los Angeles.

The collection that was on exhibit was insanely good. Under one roof, they had Koons, Gursky, Kelly (one of our favs! Second time seeing Kelly’s work in person), Basquiat, Baldessari, Warhol, Haring, Kusama (finally we got to see her installation ‘Longing For Eternity’!), Lichtenstein, Murakami, Therrien and much more. It was a real treat and definitely one of the biggest highlights of our trip. If you ever get the chance, it’s a must visit destination!

A little late in posting this tiny piece of press that we got on Daily Hive last week about our sneaker collab launch with Six Hundred Four and EVO CarShare. This beautiful video was shot and produced by the talented folks at Timelapse Film.
Hope you like the video as much as we do.

Here are a few screen grabs from the Daily Hive article.
