The Royal Family at Industtrees

Unfortunately, I missed the opening at Industtrees this past Friday. The turnout out looks great though. "The Royal Family" featured the work of Aprile Elcich and is up until November 12th.
Industtrees was also just written up in the Globe and Mail. A big congratulations to them! Check out that article here.
Today's inspiration is a guy that graduated a year ahead of me. I remember his thesis work that was beautiful. I've been happily following his progress for the past 4 years. Andy Kehoe.

These pics were taken by Cam Kolachuck and the good people at Industtrees.


Toronto in Colour

Toronto in Colour, a new branch of CAMH, has featured my illustrations on their website! The collages were done for my senior thesis as part of a re-packaging for 3 Toni Morrison novels. The books that I created covers for were; Sula, Jazz, The Bluest Eye. To see them click here. In exchange for using my illustrations CAMH awarded me an Itouch and will have an official bash to celebrate their new non-profit where my artwork will be on display. Very fun.
Check out Toronto in Colour. There site is "a virtual community dedicated to Toronto’s diverse population. Our goal is to offer a virtual space to the different racialized, cultural, immigrant and refugee groups that live in Toronto. Collaboration and empowerment of communities through knowledge exchange is our priority."
Today's inspiration is one of my Parsons Illustration Buddies: Courtney Blazon


New Mailer Revealed plus Interview

Over the past couple of months I've been lucky enough to get to know the girls over at Toronto Craft Alert. First I got to design a header for their e-newsletter with Jen, then I got interviewed by Amy, and then I got to finish my header design off by putting together the body of the e-newsletter with Jen.
Quite a fun experience. I'm so pleased with how the mailer turned out and look forward to working with them again soon. They are the best kind of client you can get; clear vision, open to creativity, and very easy going!!
See the newsletter below, view the interview online here.
PS. Check out my dad's comment below. It's so sweet I almost cried.


Book of Poems

I just received my very own printed copy of "Songs of the West" by Marion E. Moodie which I was lucky enough to create the cover illustration for. The printing is beautifully done on textured off-white paper that matches the palette and the linear quality of the illustration perfectly. The book was published by the good people at Ronald P. Frye & Company. To buy your own copy or read excerpts click here.
