Halifax’s Best Visual Artist 2009 award

Best of Halifax Coast cover

Today I’m finally allowed to spread the word. This evening is The Coast’s Best of Halifax 2009 party where I will be taking home the award for Best Visual Artist here in my hometown of Halifax. Woohoo! The folks over at The Coast even asked me to design the cover for the newest issue promoting the event which hits the stands today. Golden vector madness.

Here are a few iterations of the cover as I progressed along with a shot showing the amount of vectors I had on the go:

The Coast Best of Halifax 2009

I know many of you took the time to throw a vote my way last month, even though you are not from Halifax or anywhere near. I want to send a huge thank-you to each and every one of you for doing that, it really means a lot to me given this award comes straight from my hometown. Thanks for the kind support, everyone. You are all my heroes :)

The Best of Halifax 2009 party is tonight at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia (1723 Hollis Street) starting at 7pm, just print off this invitation to be let in. I’ll be sure to get some photos of the event uploaded as soon as I can.

So lets party, hope to see you there!

Here are some wonderful pieces created by Polish artist Grzegorz Domaradzki, also known as Gabz. Not only does Gabz have an excellent command of illustration, he also known his way around the design world with some lovely typography and color palettes to complement his work. Amazing caliber of discipline with the two sides coming together.

The work here is the tip of the iceberg, swing over to his official site to check out his superb portfolio.

Here are some great uploads found on the Flickr stream of the junkyard.dogs. I don’t know very much about these gems, other then they are European and designed for the most part by Jan Fleischmann back in the early 1980s. Feel free to chime in on the comments if you have any additional information.

Lovely photography and type work, and I love the Lego additions.
