Celebrating redemption with 19 Crimes Cali Red with a larger-than-life Snoop Dogg art installation.

We were hand picked by Ashley McKenzie Barnes, an accomplished art curator from Toronto in conjunction with CRAFT, the PR agency to do the Canadian launch in Vancouver for Snoop Dogg’s Cali Red wine by 19 Crimes.

We presented 5 concepts to the client and this ‘Larger Than Life’ art sculpture was selected for the launch. Within less than a few days after presenting our concept we assembled a world class team to bring our creative vision to life.

The initial 3D rendering was done by hand with pencil and paper due to our limited access to Snoop Dogg himself. The artwork on Snoop Dogg’s Larger-than-life sculpture was done freestyle and illustrated freehand on location by Carson Ting using a brush and Montana street inks for longevity and durability.

Tune in tonight to see me paint live on Snag’s IG live feed. I’ll be painting alongside (virtually) with Stefan Tosheff. This will be my first time, not exactly sure what to expect, and I have absolutely no idea what I’ll be painting / drawing. This will be interesting, to say the least.

We The North. A Canadian basketball success story 24 years in the making.

Back in 2014, we were commissioned by Sid Lee, an advertising agency from Montreal (Toronto, Paris, LA) to create this massive illustration (one of the biggest we’ve created) for Sport Chek to sponsor the Raptors. This campaign #MyNorth had a massive media buy at the time where it was plastered all over Toronto. The artwork and campaign have earned us several awards including CA, Clios, Lotus Awards, Applied Arts and Graphis.

Seeing The Toronto Raptors headed into the NBA Finals for the first time in history is absolutely amazing! The first thing we thought of was to pull this project back out to share and celebrate for our hometown team. Looking forward to seeing the next game against the Warriors.

Mural project for Powers Construction out in Salt Spring Island.

Written by . Filed under Uncategorized. Tagged , , , . Comments Off on Mural project for Powers Construction out in Salt Spring Island..

Our first hand-painted mural of the year takes us to Salts Spring Island for Powers Construction. We are extra giddy about this one because the home we are painting in is insanely beautiful and the guest house is literally straight out of Dwell Magazine (we’ll publish those photos once it’s officially published through Dwell). We’re all stocked up on our art supplies for our trip out there tomorrow at the crack of dawn. We will be there for the rest of the week and the weather is looking promising.

All scattered with all our shit.

Earlier in the day, I had to go pick up some camera gear from the award winning architectural photographer, Andrew Latreille to take to Salt Spring so he doesn’t have to lug all that gear on the plane. Really stoked that Patrick got him to shoot our process.

We were able to cram all our paints in the secret compartment under the trunk space!
All the boxes of paint and art supplies are all neatly hidden underneath in the huge underfloor storage. Well done BMW!

One of our best performing Instagram posts of 2018. We are looking into doing prints for this big ass map of Vancouver due to the popular demand. This commissioned mural illustration of our beautiful city, Vancouver took over 125 hours (Yes, we keep track of these things) and the concept sketching part took over 30 hours (Thanks Freshbooks for helping us keep track of our time!). The client is for a property developer which we’ll disclose at a later date. Brand and creative direction by the talented Chris Zawada and art direction and illustration by yours truly. Read More »
