Understanding emotions

Rhea Lalla has always been a great listener. Especially when it comes to young people. Her parenting resource Build Great Minds has opened the door to new approaches in family communication.

We just received a copy of her book Feeling Your Feelings. It has warm and inviting illustrations and language that parents and children can identify with. It accompanies the SuzieQ doll, a well-crafted toy designed to Build Emotional Intelligence.

Listen to Rhea and her perspective on building a bridge between you and your child in this challenging age:

Never before has information been so abundant
yet wisdom, so elusive.

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.
