New mural up temporarily by J Nasty before new windows get installed at Green Horn Cafe.

Loved seeing this rad piece in person when I came in the studio this morning done by Jeremy Wong. It’ll only be up for another 3-4 weeks before it’s taken down for the installation of new windows, so be sure to come check it out in person at Green Horn Cafe.

Written by . Filed under Press, Blogging. Tagged , , . Comments Off on Applied Arts, Speaker Series: Aiken Lao, First Year On The Job..
Aiken Lao is the studio manager at Vancouver’s Chairman Ting Industries and a freelance illustrator/graphic designer. She is a recent graduate from the University of British Columbia’s business program, specializing in marketing. Aiken will discuss her first year as an intern at Chairman Ting, the technology they incorporate into their designs, and notable projects they’ve worked on at the studio. She will also be sharing job hunting tips and how business can be combined with creativity.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 3:00-3:30 PM EST
Session focus: Technology at work + Job hunting tips


Our very own Aiken Lao will be speaking for Applied Arts Speaker Series. She’s our amazing studio manager that helps manage and traffic projects for both Hubert Kang and myself at the studio. She’s proven to be an invaluable asset over the past 2.5 years. She first started at the studio as an intern at the beginning of 2018 and by the end of the year, Hubert and I decided to hire her full time as our studio manager where she has helped out with projects for Fairmont Hotels, Nike, Porsche Canada, Kabam Games, 19 Crimes x Snoop Dogg and much more. Aiken has helped pick up a few Applied Arts awards in between for many projects she has helped manage and produce. Check out the full line up of speakers here.

She’ll give you the full low down. The good, the bad and the ugly. We’re all very proud of all her achievements within such a short period of time. Here’s a fun little interview we did with her back in March of 2019.

Check out her work here.

Standing desks and skateboards in the studio.

When no one is at the studio while saving down 80+ MB Adobe Illustrator files that take over 2 minutes to save on my maxed out 2018 Apple Macbook Pro, I coast around on my skateboard like a genie. And yes, I’m not impressed with the performance of my Macbook Pro.

It’s been a crazy month of heavy production work but excited to see everything coming together for our current art installation project for Kabam Games in Vancouver in collaboration with the folks at Perkins + Will. This project has been in the works since the early days of the Pandemic and I can’t wait until I’m able to share the work we’ve been doing.

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.
