GTB’s visual brand manifesto measures 123″ tall by 296″ wide.

This project for GTB Toronto and Montreal was definitely one of our top 5 projects of this year so far. Working closely with the Executive Creative Director, Yasmin Sahni, we created this multi-layered of crazy fun artwork that’s embedded with a ton of easter eggs including subtle nods to great artists like Keith Haring, Alex Colville, Ai Weiwei, Edward Hopper, The Toronto Raptors, and more. This massive illustration can actually be taken apart as each component is its own entity. Here’s one piece extracted for fun. It’s called ‘The Running Building”.

The Running Building. One of hundreds of elements that make up this giant GTB mural.

Here’s a closer look at the mural broken up into two parts.

It was extra nice to be able to work with Frank Turner again, the owner of Clockwork Productions in Toronto. I used to work with Frank way back in the early 2000s when I was an art director working in Toronto. Frank and his team always pull through in spades, so when I knew they were handling the production, I was more than thrilled. Project Management at the studio by Aiken Lao.

Check out more snaps of the mural that we pulled from social.

Title: Double Douche Duck

Happy Monday everyone! I’m a big fan of Mondays and Fridays. Both days mark the beginning of something new and exciting. Today, after a late start this morning, I came in the studio and started to work on this fun illustration project from Montreal for the friendly folks at LNDMRK and doodled out this guy which made me giggle. So here is, meet ‘Double Douche Duck’. Haha!

Limited edition print done by Hemlock Printers.
Love the sheen on the paper stock and foil reproduction quality.
The cover of thank you card.
The lovely card’s inside.
Interior page of the booklet.
Limited to 1500 prints.

The folks at BCAA are truly one of the nicest group of people I’ve ever worked with. Today, I got a package from BCAA with a limited print of my artwork that I was commissioned to work on earlier this year and a thank you card. It is so heartwarming to receive something so thoughtful from a client that appreciates the hard work you put in.

The art prints were handled by BCAA’s internal design team and printed by Hemlock Printers. The quality is seriously top shelf. There’s a really nice sheen to the paper stock that’s almost metallic looking from certain angles and I also love how the gold foil turned out for my handwritten signature.

We dug up this old illustration that came up this morning in conversation for a potential project this morning and we don’t think we ever posted this piece called ‘The Running Man’ on this blog, so here it is. Happy Monday everyone! Here’s our Discover Weekly playlist on Spotify:

A big pile of Tings as we sort out pieces for the sicker pack release.

So much work, so little time. We’re looking to opening the vault to fire up sticker packs and more in the near future after we plough through our current heavy workload. Really happy to see our Bun Bun Ting icon character concrete form for shits and giggles.

Right before heading out of the studio for the weekend, I quickly cranked this guy out before game 3 started. Wasn’t really sure what I was drawing and all I knew was that I wanted to drawn Kawhi in action. I referenced this photo and drew it by just eye balling the visual reference. Can’t wait for game 5 tonight! #WeTheNorth

BCAA magazine front cover artwork. Making BC Better on and off the road.

The art board. Not everyone knows this but I build most of my artwork in layers once the final composition is locked down. This allows me to have lots of flexibility to move things around and the ability to animate if the opportunity presents itself.

Stoked to see the magazine printed in person. This was a real fun illustration project. Every single element in this illustration is on a separate layer so it can be used as an animation piece or rearranged for another application in the future. Big thanks to our studio manager Aiken Lao for overseeing the production and our intern Emily Rose for her help with visual research.

One of the mandates of the brief was the use of vibrant colours.
