Outdoor Life Road Trip Postcards

I had the chance to illustrate some fun and colourful postcards for Outdoor Life for a feature about hunting and travel/road trips. Each card required a certain number of images to represent the location, some touristy things to do and the type of hunting to be done there. This was a ton of work but I love how the whole package came together.

O Canada – Royal Canadian Mint

ocanada1

Last year I illustrated this 2016 O Canada Gift Set for The Royal Canadian Mint. How I forgot to blog about it is beyond me, as it is one of the coolest projects I’ve ever worked on. The sets are distributed through Canada Post outlets across Canada. I designed and illustrated both the packaging and the loonie for this set. We wanted a very Canadian package with a more hip and indie vibe to it. It wasn’t possible to actually print on Kraft paper so I included a Kraft paper texture that printed looking just like the real thing.

I also designed the packages for all of the other Gift Sets which included Baby, Wedding, Birthday and Holiday sets. I illustrated the loonie designs on each of those sets as well. Shown here are the images of my O Canada set, as it includes the most illustration and it’s the one I’m very proud of. It was my first time designing packaging. I spent a lot of time tweaking die-lines and colours to make sure everything worked out. I’m incredibly happy with how they turned out.

Actor Portraits for Backstage Magazine

I’ve been drawing portraits of actors for Backstage Magazine every week since March. I’ve drawn over 40 portraits of actors like Jere Burns (great face), Holly Hunter, Ernie Hudson, Jon Voight, Ciaran Hinds and Sela Ward. I don’t often draw celebrities. I draw a lot of chefs and business people, so it’s nice to draw some famous faces once a week. Here is a selection of some of the portraits from this year.
