Sasquatch! Collab

Jarrett Edmund, a talented writer for The New LoFi went down to Washington with a film camera and a typewriter to cover Sasquatch! 2016, much in the same way photojournalists used to operate before the advent of social (and digital) media. Upon his return Jarrett asked me to complement his analog festival coverage with little illustrations, and to help put together the book. The 15-page mixed-media booklet also features physical souvenirs from the festival itself. The end result is a tactile, physical experience.

Garbage

GFL (Green for Life) Environmental Inc. has a simple clean brand with a striking green accent color that gives their company a “fresh” look, which is tough to do in garbage. To push this idea further I created a dirty garbage pattern to be placed in all sorts of real-life applications, including posters and decals, resulting in the beautification of garbage all around the city.

Sex Pamphlet

This is a pamphlet I created in Info Design. Intended for ages 14-24, it is meant to entertain the viewer during their long stay in a clinic waiting room with crass illustrations, open-minded information, and shocking statistics. The purpose is to realize that everyone is different, and there is no need to feel ashamed or judge anyone else. It’s time to be open, honest and safe. It is three booklets saddle-stitched in an accordion format for easy handling: Attraction Be Smart and Safe Why Now?

Shaw Web Design

During my time at Shaw I refreshed the corporate section of their website, and aligned it to their updated brand. I created the banners and icons, but also evaluated which pages could be consolidated, or removed. Here are some of the pages and projects that I worked on. Pumpkin Patrol was one of my favourite projects because I got to include some illustrations. Afterwards I made a few into gifs for fun.

Story Telling

The work I did for this class was some of the most fun I’ve had illustrating, and I think that was because the final piece wasn’t as important as the story/concept, so I felt more comfortable trying new things. One project was to take the classic Red Riding Hood tale and tell it a different way: in another era, from another point of view, maybe Red is a wolf? I decided to focus on the fact that in many of the versions the wolf seems to gobble down little Red and the Grandma in one gulp. “It was pretty dumb of the wolf to eat us alive, hey Grams?”     Another project was to create an illustration inspired by an assigned artist. My artist was Emily Carroll – a prominent voice in the web comic horror genre. She strives to make her viewer feel uneasy, so I decided to illustrate my greatest source of unease: water!
