Been back in Hong Kong for a week now and was reminded how beautiful the birds are here. I have no idea what type of birds we’re seeing but they’re gorgeous. I wish I brought my telephoto lens out here but for now, I’ll just have fun illustrating them as I see them. This particular one had a really long tail and was just chilling out in a local urban park in Sai Wan Ho. Follow our journey on the gram.

Here’s a fun little process video of my illustartion.

We’re excited to be back again in Hong Kong. We’ve been back for over a week now and have finally settled in and beat our jet lag. We’re here until Feb 27th and really looking forward to reconnecting with our contacts at ad agencies and design firms like Pill and Pillow. If you’d like to reach out and connect with us while we’re here, our local number is 6689 3640 for Carson and 5663 7828 for Denise.

For all image maker nerds reading this, the illustration was shot last night on our Nikon D600 and Nikkor 50mm F1.8. Shot at F7.1 ISO 640 with an exposure time of 2.5 secs. We brought minimal gear this time with only two 50mm. One being F1.4 Non-ai and F1.8. The monster bunny was illustrated on the iPad Pro’s Procreate app.

For all your other project inquiries while we’re away, or if you have any studio needs, feel free to hit up our Studio Manager extraordinaire Aiken. Her email is aiken at chairmanting.com She’s holding the fort down in Vancouver. Studio hours are Mon-Friday 10am – 6pm. However, she will also be away from Jan 28-Feb 12th to vacation in Shanghai.

Tinkering around with smaller prints resized and cropped to fit a portrait orientation. This Six Hundred Four piece in collaboration with EVO Car SharePacific North Weave‘ would be cut up in 3 pieces, left, middle and right. Revisiting this piece since I added 3 bonus easter eggs in the piece including a Koi loving Otter.

You can now order your pair (limited to six hundred and four pairs) online or at the store.
