Having fun shooting toy cars with a Google Pixel 4a.

Vintage toy Porsche I picked up at the Autoshow back in 2017.

Super quick doodles just to tinker with visual ideas.

I’ve always wanted to create a fun visual series using all the toy cars we have at home so this was a fun little exercise I did during the weekend. Can’t wait until we can get a bit of a breather to start working on more personal art projects.

All the shots here were shot on the Google Pixel 4a using the portrait mode. I did a few minor tweaks such as contrast and brightness on the phone but that’s all. Not bad for a budget smart phone camera eh.

Returning to the stage for Creative Mornings, Vancouver. Feb 5th 2021.

I free styled this illustration for this post.

Exactly 7 years ago, I gave my first Creative Mornings talk where I also did a live drawing session instead of using slides. Well, on Friday I’ll be returning to the stage (online) as a Creative Mornings Alumni for an event called ‘Divergent’. A wonderful topic that many like myself would welcome to hear how things have diverged since the pandemic hit.

This time, instead of a talk, I’ll be returning to draw live (streaming via Zoom) for all three speakers Rachel McKinley, Darryl Condon, and Juno Kim. I always get giddy when I get to freestyle draw and improvise as the unknown excites me.

Big ups to my studio mate and good friend Hubert Kang for helping me set up with all his fancy video equipment for the best visual fidelity (No pressure Hubert!) an illustrator can get at our studio. Also big thanks to Rick Etkin for all his video tech wisdom.

There will also be a live musical performance by Craig Addy, a Musician, Pianist, Composer & Improviser.

Hope to virtually see you all there this Friday. The event is free to register.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays everyone. What can I say about 2020? This illustration pretty much says it all and was the first thing that came to mind for a visual.

Please note, our studio will be closed from Dec 21st to Jan 4th. Hope you all have a happy, healthy and safe holiday season! Catch you all in 2021!

Although closed, I haven’t forgotten about our year-end video which I’ll be posting here in the next few days so keep an eye for it.

Came into the studio this morning to see this amazing light casted on to the artwork that I’ve been working on so I grabbed my Nikon and took a few close up shots. Really excited about this branding project that we’re working on from New Zealand. We’re legally not allowed to disclose any other details until the new year so stay tuned for pictures and info soon.
