This is the illustration I created for the Wes Anderson themed art show that took place in November at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto – showcasing artists from the Animation Industry. I was inspired by his film, Moonrise Kingdom.
I created this digital illustration last year for an art show organized by Tammy Semen called, All Dahl’d Up. Just for this post I added the close up on the shoes – I had a lot of fun with the little details that you don’t really get to see. Various animation artists participated and the show was amazing with a variety of artworks inspired by Roald Dahl’s stories!

And I am excited to be involved again this year with another great group of artists from the animation industry! Its a Wes Anderson theme this year – the show starts this week at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto and runs until Nov. 23. If you are in the area be sure to check it out!

Here is one of my favorite designs I’ve created so far – for anyone looking for a funky, tribal design. The text is adjusted to include the name and details the customer wants. LOOK AT YOU Wedding Design also accepts custom orders to have your own one-of-a-kind invitations and any other wedding design details created just for YOU!

I have recently been busy creating new designs!
I volunteered to create postcard style cards for Hobbitstee Wildlife Refuge – a rehab facility for injured, orphaned and displaced wildlife.
These are the 4 card designs I made. Cards are 4×6 inches and come with a white envelope. Each card is $5.00 CAD. All proceeds from the purchase of these cards go to Hobbitstee!
