Craft Ontario Anniversary Illustration

Craft Ontario has over 1,500 members (representing craftspeople, designers, educators, collectors) and through their guides, catalogues, events and various collaborations reaches over 10,000 people a year. To celebrate Craft Ontario’s 40th Anniversary I was commissioned to create an illustration for the annual members show and market this fall.
To represent allllll the forms of crafts and makers, it was agreed very early on this piece would be comprised mainly of hands, tools, and items. Although it would be impossible to include everything and everyone, I tried my best to get as much stuff in as tasteful as possible.

New Cottage Series for Pixel and Bristle Designers Market

Very excited to be selected to showcase my work at Pixel and Bristle’s first design and typography market. I decided to use this event as an excuse to create a new series and promote the event as the first place these prints will be available to the public.

These theme came to me while staying in the studio over the May long weekend sketching while my friends all went away for the weekend. I wasn’t necessarily bummed, but it did bring up a lot of memories from being a kid and going away was a regular thing. These pieces are about the trip there, the long nights, and the break from the ordinary.

Pixel and Bristle Design Market is on Saturday June 25th at the Drake Hotel 1150 Queen St W Toronto. Check out their website for full vendors list and more information www.pixelandbristle.combear IMG_2065
