Work in progress shots from our Toyota Supra mural in Richmond.

We wrapped up our mural for OpenRoad Toyota in Richmond a few days ago. It took us 7 solid days to finish. Much longer than we thought due to the scale and complexity of the piece. Big ups to Mark Illing for his strong assist. Here are a few photos I took last week. Final shots of the mural to come soon. Stay tuned for the official launch details.

These shots were all taken on day 4 of production. Timelapse and video to come soon.

Day 4 progress
Chalk outline and notes
Water-based spray paint from Montana used for indoors.
Truly odourless but a little too drippy for my liking.
Lots of taping and masking for the sharp lines. I think we used over 8 rolls.
We just almost 2 gallons of red latex paint. Red is not a fun colour to use as it takes many coats for it to be truly opaque and takes a long time for it to dry.
We just almost 2 gallons of red paint from Sherwin Williams.

Herschel Re-Sail Wall Organizer and my serious marker addiction.

Written by . Filed under Blogging. Tagged , , , , , . Comments Off on Herschel Re-Sail Wall Organizer and my serious marker addiction..

I’ve been obsessed with the Herschel Re-Sail program ever since I found out about it and no, this is not a sponsored post. I made a mental note to pick up one of their aprons (I have a thing for aprons) but of course, life happens and I totally forgot about it until a month later, but by the time I tried to grab one online, they were ALL GONE. Desperate to find anything that was left, I found this wall organizer for $59 bones on the Herschel Supply site. I’m now able to organize a tiny portion of my art supplies with this organizer as I have a serious marker and art supply addiction.

Speaking of addiction, I’m now waiting for a new shipment of markers, spray paint nibs and etc from Bombing Science. With all the art supplies I’ve been amassing over the years, I’m really looking forward to our studio meeting this week about renovations. It’s time we find a solution to organize all our art supplies.

Herschel Supply x Vancouver Mural Fest Instagram story feature.

I am extremely grateful for all the shine I’ve been getting with all the projects I’ve been working on through my studio. Last week Herschel Supply put out a feature for Annie Chen and I through their Instagram stories.

It was a feature talking about our recent collaboration for our studio mural in the Westend (Nelson and Nicola) for this year’s Vancouver Mural Festival.

Our mural titled ‘Westend Bestend’ features everything that defines the Westend. In particular, my mural features Joe Fortes (A prominent figure in the early history of Vancouver, and the city’s first official lifeguard.) heading west towards English Bay and a great blue Heron taking flight while Annie’s mural is made up of beautiful patterns and cute tiny critters. Both murals converge at the tip of Nelson and Nicola with a two-faced raccoon which you’ll need to see in person for the full effect.

Big thanks to the Herschel Supply team for coming out to document our work and for the interview. Visit @herschelsupply on Instagram stories to go through our entire interview.

Snoop Dogg x 19 Crimes Canadian launch. The BTS video shot and directed by Hubert Kang.

Celebrating redemption with 19 Crimes Cali Red with a larger-than-life Snoop Dogg art installation.

We were hand picked by Ashley McKenzie Barnes, an accomplished art curator from Toronto in conjunction with CRAFT, the PR agency to do the Canadian launch in Vancouver for Snoop Dogg’s Cali Red wine by 19 Crimes.

We presented 5 concepts to the client and this ‘Larger Than Life’ art sculpture was selected for the launch. Within less than a few days after presenting our concept we assembled a world class team to bring our creative vision to life.

The initial 3D rendering was done by hand with pencil and paper due to our limited access to Snoop Dogg himself. The artwork on Snoop Dogg’s Larger-than-life sculpture was done freestyle and illustrated freehand on location by Carson Ting using a brush and Montana street inks for longevity and durability.
