Vancouver Convention Centre

If you are a Vancouverite, you can take a free one hour guided tour of the Vancouver Convention Centre, just call them to check for available times. Team of designers from my company recently used the opportunity and visited this quite spectacular building in our neighbourhood. Many things are cool about the building: the architecture, the interior design, the sustainability factor, the selected art, the materials, the colours - but the scale is THE element that will for sure amaze anyone. The ballrooms are the biggest enclosed spaces I have seen, yet they still feel very intimate. Good job LMNArchitects, MCM Architects and DA Architects

Events Concept Art

Creating concept illustrations for an event is an interesting thing. Events take place at the existing venues, therefore a photo or even a 3D model of the space already exists. What's needed is an exciting painted overlay. It is almost like painting 3D white boxes into something believable, if not realistic. Actually believable is far more exciting than realistic. Here is an example of a series of illustrations for an event, with the raw photos and the painted overlay.

Olympic Anniversary

The team who delivered Vancouver Olympic ceremonies, David Atkins Enterprises pitched a great concept for the Anniversary party. It didn't happen - for whatever reason. I produced a series of concept illustrations that were used in the pitch to depict the event. Here are few of those...  

Mon Pays boards

This is an act that, although well designed, directed and choreographed, didn't get into the Vancouver Olympics Opening Ceremony. It is based on Gilles Vigneault's song Mon Pays. The look of the motion graphics for the piece is inspired by Quebec painters Lemeiux, Barbeau, Borduas as well as NFB animators McLaren, Larkin, Leaf, Bochner etc. Here are the storyboards for the song (design frames at the same time) that were supposed to be projected on the central Field of Play.
