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:

Vectorvault is 10

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.

Government Assistance

In spite of my efforts, I had been unsuccessful in finding funding for Vectorvault‘s Ultimate Search Engine (UVSE). So I turned to a government funded program that matched me with Niagara College to challenge their research department to build the Ultimate Vector Search Engine (UVSE).

Although, it was not a school that I had previously associated with tech development, I was thrilled at the notion of finally getting help. So I hit the road and headed for wine country.

Clear direction

I put together a crystal-clear briefing with all of the ingredients. Everything was labeled and easy to find. I presented this project to a young team who were all very excited and confident about building this unique search engine. I trusted a friend, far smarted than me to oversee it’s production and installation.

I was also asked to present Vectorvault to the marketing department and eventually as a project for second year marketing students. That made me feel really great. I’ve always wanted to pass my knowledge on. This turned out to be a very satisfying experience.

I assumed that the technical end of it would go just as well.
