The Summer Festival is tomorrow and my friends and I have been working really hard on putting it together. This will be my last year I’m involved as I’ll be moving to Seattle by end of August.
If you’re in the Vancouver/Burnaby area and want something to do, why not stop by? The event is free and you can play games and win raffle tickets for only $2, and our grand prize is the Mario Kart Wii U set. I’ll be selling buttons, stickers, and prints as usual.
Sorry for the long hiatus! Things have been non-stop busy but I’m finally graduated. Here’s two digital mockups of my grad project, “Greetings from Vanburbia”, the first being almost identical to the physical project which didn’t photograph very well. I’ve also included a bad photo from during setup day.
The pieces themselves are digital paintings of houses from all across Vancouver and parts of Burnaby. I wanted to capture how similar and also how different suburban houses can be. Some of these are based on specific houses near places I’ve lived, but they could also be pretty much anywhere. Their small size is meant to evoke the intimacy of a postcard.
I took tons of pictures of houses and their details and I plan on producing more, as well as looking into having these printed as postcards. I’m also planning to go back in and diversify the foliage a bit more so things aren’t as repeated.
If you’re in Vancouver, these pieces will be on display at the Emily Carr Grad Show through May 18th.
