A shot of the kitchen area art installation.

This art installation project is hands down one of our most favourite projects of 2019. The weather was perfect and the property we were on was spectacular to the say the least. We were working inside this amazing custom home (glass doors all around that slide open on all sides!) sitting on over 100 acres of land surrounded by tall pines and a little lake out front was straight out of a postcard. When we arrived we were greeted by the workers on site and Andrew Latreille, the talented architectural photographer that Patrick flew out from Vancouver to document our art installation process for the week.

Day 1.

Arriving on the property the first day.

A few snaps of the main house and the gorgeous guest house just 100 metres away sitting in the field of grass surrounded by tall pines and a valley.

Day 1 started late. We didn’t arrive on location until 2pm. Once in the house, I started sketching out both illustrations with a chalk on one hand and the print out of the art on my other hand. The entire sketching process took about 2 hours. While I chalked, Denise, Aiken and Audrey (yes, even our kid came!) went to check in at our AirBnB 15 min. away from the site.

Mural project for Powers Construction out in Salt Spring Island.

Written by . Filed under Uncategorized. Tagged , , , . Comments Off on Mural project for Powers Construction out in Salt Spring Island..

Our first hand-painted mural of the year takes us to Salts Spring Island for Powers Construction. We are extra giddy about this one because the home we are painting in is insanely beautiful and the guest house is literally straight out of Dwell Magazine (we’ll publish those photos once it’s officially published through Dwell). We’re all stocked up on our art supplies for our trip out there tomorrow at the crack of dawn. We will be there for the rest of the week and the weather is looking promising.

All scattered with all our shit.

Earlier in the day, I had to go pick up some camera gear from the award winning architectural photographer, Andrew Latreille to take to Salt Spring so he doesn’t have to lug all that gear on the plane. Really stoked that Patrick got him to shoot our process.

We were able to cram all our paints in the secret compartment under the trunk space!
All the boxes of paint and art supplies are all neatly hidden underneath in the huge underfloor storage. Well done BMW!

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!

Weaving The Pacific North Weave Mural in Gastown, Vancouver.

Written by . Filed under Blogging, Murals. Tagged , , , . Comments Off on Weaving The Pacific North Weave Mural in Gastown, Vancouver..

Weaving seemingly kinetic acrylic white lines to create this mural of beautiful Vancouver in Gastown called ‘Pacific North Weave’ was loads of fun. The first-ever collaboration with Six Hundred Four + Evo Car Share to celebrate Vancouver’s vibrant culture.

This particular mural was created without using projectors due to the odd location being at the exit point of a parkade. Instead, I opted to use a simpler approach which was to use a simple gridding system to build the general composition. Once the basic structure of the piece was done, I freehanded the entire piece. Big thanks to my assistant Aiken Lao and Mo from EVO!

I’ve created several versions of this piece and the second version is a hand drawn 60” x 40” illustration on a custom wooden canvas that’s hung at the beautiful gallery like a sneaker shop across the street at Six Hundred Four.

The illustration has also taken life as sneakers with four styles to chose from which you can now pre-order.

These shots are actually screen grabs from a video that we’ll be releasing tomorrow shot by the talented cinematographer Trevor Lang from Timelapse Films.

Mega Marvel Mural just got installed in a gaming company in Coal Harbour.

Written by . Filed under Drawings, Murals. Tagged , , . Comments Off on Mega Marvel Mural just got installed in a gaming company in Coal Harbour..

I absolutely loved how my mega (40’ x 11’) Marvel mural turned out at last night’s install in Coal Harbour. The mural is for a gaming company’s second HQ that I’m not allowed to disclose but it was in collaboration with the talented senior interior designer Kimberly Baba from Perkins + Will.

This mural is actually an accurate illustrated map of Vancouver but jam-packed with Marvel and Transformer characters wrecking havoc in the city. This was an absolute dream project. You’ll need to see it in person to see every bit of detail. There are also a ton of hidden easter eggs that I can’t even keep track myself.


And even at this size, a large portion of the illustration is still cropped in the north where you would have seen the Lion’s Gate bridge and the sea bus. Also pictured is my favourite Boooooom teeeeeee and my shamelessly sponsored Native AP Moc sneakers. PVC free vinyl print and installation by North Side Signs.
