Happy Halloween to Everyone! These a just a few of the halloween gems I found on Flickr. The bottom photo is a custom art piece I made for a client. We were going through all of their old photos and I convinced them that this had to be made into something!

I have had these images saved in my inspiration file for quite a while. This loft belongs to the super creative couple of Something's Hiding in Here. You might recognize their famous mustache's on a stick that are sold on etsy. If I could only find an exact copy of their loft in Toronto. See more photos of their home here.

Had the best time shooting Beckerman Biteplate the other day!!! We shot this on a steep incline in the woods and I can't believe we didn't end up rolling down the hill. The third Beckerman was very much missed!!! Also check out the Beckermans covering Toronto Fahsion week for Teen Vogue!

Despite being sick for three weeks I managed to escape to one of my favorite places, Fina Vista Farm, close to Orangeville, Ontario. A big thank you to Camilla and Victoria for having us up! I met Camilla at an art show and we came up with the amazing idea to trade my art for riding at her farm. She breeds and boards Paso Fino horses. I was lucky enough to ride Camillas prized stallion Mercy. Paso Fino's have an amazingly smooth gate that is specific to their breed. We took a night ride, practically letting the horses lead us through the dark and a 4 hour day treck the next day. I have videos to come! Makes me miss my horsies!
This is the bag that I designed for the 2007 Vogue annual meeting. I had a teeny tiny budget that was just enough to cover the transfers of my illustration onto about 200 bags. The bag was filled with goodies of all different kinds. I got the amazing staff at Cythia Vincent to contribute the cutest little suede pencil bags. If I remember correctly, the other items in the bag were; gift certificates to the newest spas and salons, a pair of jeans, jewelry, scented candles, perfume, cosmetic samples and any new products that companies were trying to promote. From what I heard, the annual meetings were pretty incredible to attend. One year the employees were whisked away to the Bahamas. The 2007 meeting was NYC bound but they were treated to the best of the city and that is a definite luxury.
This is one of my journals from the summer of 2006. These are some of my notes and sketches while interning at Vogue. They make the cutest journals for the staff every year with all of their best photos. I still treasure all of my Vogue ephemera....pencils, envelopes, stickers, pencil bags. You can see my sketches for an ad, drawings for a bag I designed for their annual meeting, random logo work that I did for a staff members wedding, and collages that I made for the design department before I left. Miss them!
