Some Personal work celebrating the Record Store Day 2012.
Basically it’s a mesh up of some of my favorite artist and who’s music I find to be relevant in the History of music so here there are…
Hope you enjoy.
This piece is actually a test of combining my gothic textura tall and narrow typeface with my new Canterbury Uncial typeface. I think they look pretty cool together. They compliment each other quite well. Differences in size, spacing and texture also work well. The long decender on the uncial Rs play well together and magically worked out that way. The uncial letters are evenly spaced a bit wider than normal to give it a more formal look. The diamonds are used to fill the empty space in the M, O, P, and T characters. Layout design, spacing and balance are so critical in calligraphy yet unfortunately often overlooked. All of this is was done by eye with help of a few guide lines.
This is an example where old-school authentic hand done calligraphy can be applied to modern movies, music, video games and other products. I like the overall look of this piece. I liked the first Resident Evil film. Never played any of the video games but imagine they look great too. This would look amazing on the back of a T-shirt, or side of a wall. Cheers Steve

This year again, I was commissioned by the French Consulate in Wuhan to design the “FETE DE LA MUSIQUE” poster.
On the 21rst & 22nd of June, Wuhan, China.
My first idea was to have that massive golden bling, a hiphop cliché in the West, which is also worn by some Chinese sketchy guys.
Both Precious and show-off.
It s the first title I design mixing latin-letters with chinese-characters. Once in a while it’s cool to use colors also.

This is a sample from my recently upgraded Gothic Textura Tall and Narrow Typeface. This commercially available typeface is nearing 400 characters.
This mural was created for the REBEL Youth Week. The mural located in a popular skate park in Mississauga Ontario features a 14′ by 12′ artwork that explores the old school writing of calligraphy with modern day communications platform Twitter. Here are some images of the mural and its creation. The calligraphy was hand lettered using a brush while all of the layout was done using illustration software (open source GIMP and Inkscape).
I can hand letter Calligraphy of any typeface onto any wall including glass. Cheers Steve!

I designed a t-shirt design for The Brook Hill Foundation. You can buy it on the printer’s website.
I was commissioned to create a wallpaper pattern for a Fashion Brand in Shanghai.
Here’s the work in progress :
Branding and Promotional Illustrations for my Portfolio
Self Initiated project regarding the branding and design of my website, logos and twitter background.
Wanted to promote my portfolio even further with this project and also have some more commercial
style work on my portfolio.
Main element of the illustrations is my portfolio, displayed on a variety of devices. These are a mix of
of 3D base layers illustrated and retouched in Photoshop. The style I went for Is what I think best
describes my work. Energy, flow, candy, neon, gloss, chrome, light and explosive were the key elements
of inspiration for this project.
Hope you like it!
