Typographic Chalkboard for Calgary Albi Homes, Riverstone Showhome


Recently had the pleasure to do some chalk art for an Albi Homes Showhome in the new community of  Riverstone! Cafe fun and welcoming was the mood and inspiration for this piece. Nice working with Robert in marketing in designing the ideal look for their showhome.

Calgary Wedding Chalk Typography, Table seating chart Kayley and Justin

Check out the table seating chart created for Kayley and Justin's wedding reception at Q Haute Cuisine. It was designed to go along with the look of their wedding invitations (image sent to me from Kayley) as seen in the last photo.  They love things that are of nature, homemade, winged creatures like bee's and butterflies. Friends, family and simple clean living is the style of this great couple. Congratulations on your wedding and thank you for having me create this for you!

Angela and Chad, Wedding Caricature

It's funny how life works sometimes. Angela and Chad contacted me to do caricature chalk mural for them, the theme being for their wedding and their upcoming beach honeymoon in Fiji! Once Angela sent me the photos, I recognized her as someone I worked with half a lifetime ago, at my very first job! Funny how we randomly reconnect so many years later.  Thanks again and Congratulations!

Bowdog Calgary Chalk Mural, March 2014

Recently did a fun commission for Bowdog here in Calgary. They specialize in everything Canine! It was a lot of fun to meet so many dogs while working on this drawing. They have a great team of people at a nice facility, so if you need lodging, grooming, daycare or training for your dog, Bowdog is highly recommended.

This wall was done with chalk markers instead of traditional chalk, as the wall is located in a busy area and dogs would brush against it while walking by.
Working with Bowdog's marking team, we decided a visually interesting way to present their services was with a 'word cloud'. Another integral part of the Bowdog brand was "Sit Stay and Play", which fits quite nicely under their logo dog tag on the left.

Wedding Seating Chart Chalk Mural

Here's a cool drawing done for Becky and her husband at Q Haute Cuisine. A new take on how to display your wedding reception's table seating chart! 
They requested the art to match their wedding invitations as seen here :)

Kids Caricatures Calgary Artist, for Westjet Family Event

Had a great time drawing caricatures for some cute kids at the Westjet Family Christmas party this past weekend.
 It was held at the Telus Spark Science Center from 9am-12pm, and they had 6 caricature artists working. Here's a glimpse of some of my favourite drawings.
 Dominic, Pheonix & Tristan: These three brothers probably share a lot of things, including this drawing! Benjamin likes the Wii and was sooo happy that I drew him with a Wii controller. Gavin melted my heart - the look on his face when I turned the drawing around to show him what he looks like as a cartoon character. He likes soccer and dogs too. What sweethearts.

Teegan's favourite color is pink and wanted me to draw her makeup in the drawing too. Tamana was very sweet and likes purple! Reid was only 17 months old, and in talking to his mom, she said he points at lots of things since he can't speak much yet. He's like a modern Gerber Baby!

Fiona and James Caricatures, Chalk Mural & Live Drawings

Recently I worked with a lovely couple, Fiona and James on a custom Caricature.

They both love cycling (they each own three different bicycles!) and have always wanted to try a tandem bicycle as well. They were really easy to work with and really fun to get to know. Above is their completed studio drawing, and I was comissioned to draw it with chalk at Q Haute Cuisine, the location for their Wedding Reception.

Fiona and James also invited me to do live caricature drawing of their guests on their Wedding Reception evening at Q Haute.  This was an exciting opportunity for me and I really loved it! Check out some of the photos of the family and friends of the couple with their caricatures. Thank you Fiona and James for the opportunity to work with you, I had an amazing time!

The Paris Marketplace, Q Haute Chalk Mural

The Paris Marketplace - Rustic buildings with the old cobblestone roads. This sets the scene in the current chalk mural at Q Haute Cuisine. Chef Michele was a pleasure to conceptualize with.  He's such a positive creative force at this establishment!
