Hand painted signage on drumskin

January 12, 2015 § Leave a comment

Some process shots from a recent project designing and painting marquis signage for a café, on drumskins. I’ll post more pics (including complete logo design) once they are installed. These ones show the process of prepping the skins to make them look old, and some of the hand lettering. The skins (one is 28″ the other is 16″) will be mounted on drums with lights inside. Can’t wait to see how they look!

Jollity Farm Logo Design

March 19, 2014 § Leave a comment

Always fun to do a little hand lettering and logo design. Jollity farm—a small west coast operation based on Thetis Island—needed a fresh logo for their business that would also work as a stamp for their CSA baskets and other products. Can’t wait to see how it looks when they start using it this season!

Succulent Sketches

October 28, 2013 § 2 Comments

So as some of you may know over the past year I have become a bit of a succulent junkie. I think it started when I was in San Francisco last November putting up an art show. I did a lot of walking around the residential streets of the Mission and noticed all the beautiful succulents, jades and cacti growing everywhere for the first time. I fell in love with… everything. The symmetry, the colours, the variation. The contrast of plump juicy leaves with the warm dry temperatures.

I wanted to try designing my own combinations and arrangements. I made an Instagram profile just for succulents so as not to look like a total crazy lady on my regular feed. I’ll be releasing my first “Succulent Print Collection” next week, and thought I’d share some photos of my drawings in the meantime ☺succies_6

The Butcher Bar

September 18, 2013 § Leave a comment

Here are some photos of a little DIY project I just finished. My baby brother got married recently and I had to think of an amazing gift idea. He and his wife already have an embarrassing amount of my artwork on their walls so I couldn’t go that route… Then the best idea came to me: BUTCHER BAR!
