Omar – Art show – Toronto

This is not a love song

I’m a busy fella. So when a close friend of mine called and asked me to do some illustration work for a concert, I politely passed. That is until he mentioned that the concert in question was: OMAR.

It’s been 10 years since his last performance in Canada. And as of one of my all-time favourite artists, I could not pass up the opportunity to reconnect.

8 years ago, I sent him some artwork from Canada to the UK. He responded with a signed CD that read:

From one artist to another – Omar.

It has been perched on my magazine shelf in my office ever since. A reminder that whatever I do to make ends meet, at my core, I’m still an artist. Read more:

Book Trailer – Unventional: Ideas Too Good To Patent

by Tom Giesler

Years ago when Vectorvault was just getting started, we discovered Tom’s work. As an accomplished patent illustrator, he had already achieved a great deal of respect. Technical drawing is a specialized form of illustration that draws upon several disciplines. And Tom is very good at it.
Trust me. I’ve tried my hand at it. It can be challenging.

Big Fans

His new book looks amazing.

But it was Tom’s whimsical images that captured our attention. His artwork has shown that technical work can have personality and in the case of his new book: create smiles.

A decade of vector art

This year, Vectorvault celebrates 10 years of searching the world for the most inspiring and creative vector art. What an education. What a ride.

Now, this is not what I would call a “success story“. At least not in the traditional sense. In many ways this is a cautionary tale marinated in stunning digital art. Some of the best I could find.

So, who am I?

Just some guy.
You could look through my portfolio if you wanted or glance at my resume, but that won’t really tell you who I am. At times, I question it myself. To really know what makes me tick, you’ve gotta know what circumstances got me here.
I’m an artist disguised as a designer.
It’s a secret.

All I can tell you is that I’m a nice person who just wanted to leave something behind. That’s what Vectorvault is to me. Proof of my existence and my love for the exciting world of vector art.

This is a graphic design love letter. One filled with triumph and tragedy.

The Dance of Dragons

The ending of last night’s episode of Game of Thrones did not disappoint. An exciting action sequence concluded with one dramatic exit.

As a student of visual graphics, I was blown away at how well the special effects were for this scene. Flawless from my perspective. Watch for yourself and then tell me what you think at the bottom of this post:

The planets were finally lining up

I was drunk on self-confidence. Furiously pouring my soul into my notebooks. Writing stories about my life. Love letters to my wife and daughter. And laser-focused on leaving my mark on the world of graphic design.
