Toronto, Canada –
Imagine you and 2000 of your closest friends exploring a modern wonderland for two incredible days and one awe inspiring night. Atomic Lollipop is a magical mash-up of music and culture with games and wild rides. It’s East meets West meets your imagination. A hotel convention centre is transformed into a playground and packed full of programming. From cosplay and video game tournaments to a massive Ferris Wheel next to world-class DJs and massive interactive art installations, this is a weekend of everything. If there’s something you want to see at the event that isn’t already happening, convince us that it’s awesome and we’ll give you funding to make it happen!
Atomic Lollipop is for you. It’s a space where you can come and unleash yourself among awesome activities with like-minded people. It’s a space where imagination is paramount and joy is ubiquitous. Life is your playground and this is your weekend.
This was a fun project in the sense that it got us to experiment with a different style, but make it more our own. I haven’t worked with anime in years, so it was an interesting direction for me. Big thanks to Glenn Arthur for all the character sketching and big thanks to Filip Komorowski for the logo sketching
