Written by . Filed under Drawings. Tagged , , . Comments Off on New illustration. A beautiful bird in Sai Wan Ho, Hong Kong..

Been back in Hong Kong for a week now and was reminded how beautiful the birds are here. I have no idea what type of birds we’re seeing but they’re gorgeous. I wish I brought my telephoto lens out here but for now, I’ll just have fun illustrating them as I see them. This particular one had a really long tail and was just chilling out in a local urban park in Sai Wan Ho. Follow our journey on the gram.

Here’s a fun little process video of my illustartion.

We’re excited to be back again in Hong Kong. We’ve been back for over a week now and have finally settled in and beat our jet lag. We’re here until Feb 27th and really looking forward to reconnecting with our contacts at ad agencies and design firms like Pill and Pillow. If you’d like to reach out and connect with us while we’re here, our local number is 6689 3640 for Carson and 5663 7828 for Denise.

For all image maker nerds reading this, the illustration was shot last night on our Nikon D600 and Nikkor 50mm F1.8. Shot at F7.1 ISO 640 with an exposure time of 2.5 secs. We brought minimal gear this time with only two 50mm. One being F1.4 Non-ai and F1.8. The monster bunny was illustrated on the iPad Pro’s Procreate app.

For all your other project inquiries while we’re away, or if you have any studio needs, feel free to hit up our Studio Manager extraordinaire Aiken. Her email is aiken at chairmanting.com She’s holding the fort down in Vancouver. Studio hours are Mon-Friday 10am – 6pm. However, she will also be away from Jan 28-Feb 12th to vacation in Shanghai.

Excited to share our new work for the Ottawa Senators.

I created these three small 6″ x 6″ acrylic paintings (Titled: Strut, Forge and Swagger) for a charity called Small Cures in Toronto to help raise funds for people who are living with Cancer. My good friend Kandie Wong was been diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer in 2015. She soon realized that the disease affects all aspects of life – including adding lots of financial stress. Kandie received tremendous support from family and friends, and now her wish is to help others in a similar situation.

Cancer patients need a cure for worrying about money while they should be focusing on getting better. A cure for lost wages because they can’t work. A cure for bills that keep coming in. A cure for hospital parking fees, for medications that aren’t covered, and for making sure there’s food on the table.

If you’re in Toronto from Nov 12-15th 2018. There will be an art show and auction where these paintings will be up for auction. 100% of the proceeds will go to this charity, #SmallCures.

Big ups to my friends with such big hearts who helped create this initiative, Chad Kabigting, Jason Perdue, Kim Ridgewell and of course Kandie Wong herself. Also shout out to my studio assistant, Aiken Lao for assisting on one of the paintings (Swagger) and lending me her acrylic paints!

November 12 – 15th
Reception: Nov 15th, 6 – 9PM
Artscape Young place – 3rd floor, 180 Shaw Street, Toronto.
