Illustrating an epic meal from Osaka.

Reliving this epic meal we had in Osaka. This was the restaurant we ate at called, かに道楽 道頓堀中店 that specializes in crab (dug up from our Foursquare check-in. And yes, people still use Foursquare!). No matter how busy we get, we always try to squeeze in side illustration work to keep fresh and innovative. This illustration style might come in handy as we are currently working on a branding project for a Japanese product. Exciting times!

Was going through my digital sketches on my iPad Pro and found this little fun doodle that I almost forgot about. Drew up this little sketch while we were in Osaka last month. It was an amazing trip, to say the least. I was so inspired by everything we saw, heard and tasted. I’m making a mental note here to continue drawing in this style for a mini-series. Stay tuned for more! We’re also getting a new studio space which we’ll announce once we move in next month! Exciting times ahead.

Japan never fails to present photo opps for us. Here’s a small sample of shots we took during our week in all three cities. We processed over 200 shots in over 2 days with Adobe Lightroom.

We’re currently in Hong Kong meeting with several agencies until the 27th. Our local number is 5138 6517 if you’d like to connect over coffee or a pint of beer.

Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto! We’re coming for you.

The cold and rain have finally arrived in Vancouver and we’re leaving just in time. We are heading off to Japan for the second time this year. We’ll be spending a week in Kobe, Kyoto and Osaka and then finally to Hong Kong for the rest of the month. Super stoked about all the places we’ll see while building up a new library of photos for our own references and a specially curated collection will be for Getty.

Every little blog post that goes up gives me so much energy to create and illustrate just for fun. This small set of illustrations took me roughly 3 hours in total using my Apple iPad Pro and Pencil and then I’d colour and finalize in Illustrator. I’ll be working abroad for a new client based out in Calgary called Bro’Kin Yolk. Pretty stoked about this new illustration project. Keep visiting this space or follow us on Instagram!
