I had the pleasure to work with Publicis on behalf of Rogers launching the “Express Yourself” campaign for the Nokia 920 line of coloured smartphones.
My job was to design and paint an 18’x12′ canvas (in one take in front of the cameras), using the four colours provided (Red, Yellow, Black & White) of which the Nokia 920 was being offered only through Rogers.
This had to be one of the coolest gigs I’ve done to date. With film crew on set, there were four cameras focused in me & my work (two stop motion & two live action cameras floating around, picking up details & close ups).
The final edited video turned out killer!
Very hard working crews on this set… Great people all around!
I was provided the awesome opportunity to participate by painting on Canada’s largest graffiti wall.
More to come on this description.
My wife and I were about to host a summer BBQ, so with friends enroute and the back of our house looking a little sparse, I figured this would be right time to grab some cans and jam up a little organic visual flavour prior to their arrival.
This is the completed piece.
Canvas and mural combined. Killer concept.
The I.T. department requested the number 127.0.0.1 be added (“localhost” or “home”).

Got busy after the event and did not get back to work on this mural before the cold weather hit for winter. Mild temperatures toward the end of March 2011 rewarded me with the opportunity to complete this mural, only to find out that Kreater Custom Motorcycles is moving at the end of the month to their new location.
You can’t win them all …but you can do one hell of a job whilst you’re there.
Show will be aired Spring 2011 and will feature time laps footage of me painting this wall, plus I have a minor speaking role.
