OUTPOST VINTAGE


Outpost is a new and much welcomed addition to downtown Guelph retail.  Owned and operated by Carolyn Fielding, Outpost has only been open for a week and already there is lots of buzz around town about this great little shop!  Carolyn asked me to show some of my prints and paintings there and also hired me to design a poster for the grand opening party on March 7th.  I snagged some interior shots of the shop from Outpost's instagram page:

Wine Sense


About a year ago, I made a few small illustrations for a book by local entrepreneur and wine buff, Bob Desautels.  Wine Sense, has finally been released and I'm pleased with how it turned out.  I was only responsible for the illustrations - the design & layout was out of my control and I really had no idea how the final product would look.  There will be a book launch on Wednesday Feb. 25th at the eBar in Guelph. 

Here are some of the ink paintings from my sketchbook:
Stacked Barrels
Grape Harvesting
White Wine Process
Amphorae

Creepy Kazoo! Poster


Here's a poster I made for an upcoming Kazoo! & Fortnight show in Guelph.  It will be an album release show for both Del Bel and Michael Feuerstack, so should be fun night!

Peeking through the blinds was originally an idea I had for a painting, but thought it would work nicely as a poster.  Here's my sketch for the design:



Check out this super cool Del Bel video, made by A Pocket History of Mars:



Here is another amazing Del Bel video made by Guelph based beauty, Steph Yates:

Welly One-Off - Winter Lager


Here's another label I made for Wellington Brewery's Welly One-Off series.  This time, it was for their Winter Lager.  Wellington Brewery is a big supporter of the Guelph arts community, not only through the One-Off series, but with their coaster project as well. You can check out my other One-Off label here.

Scout!


You can now stroll into Scout on Roncesvalles in Toronto and pick up one of my pins, tote bags or cards! I was able to deliver my wares in person, meet owner Leah and have a look around her awesome shop, packed with top notch goods!  I hope this to be my first of many wholesale ventures, so stay tuned!
