The folks at trevor//peter were coordinating a series of events for Airbnb this summer and they needed a wow factor. Taking place in the heart of Toronto, Canada the team decided a map of the city - 10 feet x 15 feet - would be the perfect way to draw the crowd to their booth.
Illustrator Dave Murray, a proud Torontonian, was chosen to work on the project. Dave quickly assembled a brilliant collage of Toronto's coolest neighborhoods and points of interest. Graphic, bold, colorful, the piece beckons you to point out where you live or where you need to visit.
It was great to connect with our longstanding client, art director Wade Gilpin at Rossignol Design, for this special assignment. Illustrator Greg Stevenson, with his ability to create an uncanny likeness, was the natural choice for this poster of Fiona Reid as Queen Elizabeth II in the upcoming Mirvish production of "The Audience". Not a small feat, to create two likenesses in one portraiture, but Greg pulls is off beautifully. With the use of luminous, rich color the illustration is undeniably regal and with that smile Fiona's character shines through.
When the Riverdale Farm's Stewardship Group first approached i2i art to commission a whimsical yet functional map of the Riverdale Farm, Tim Zeltner was chosen for his rich hand painted folk art style (actually painted on wood), and the journey to discover and depict the Farm in all it's wonder began! Below you will see Tim really captures this gem in the heart of downtown Toronto. The map illustration will be used on marketing materials and a give-away map for visitors. To see more of Tim Zeltner's magical paintings visit his updated portfolio here.
Recently I attended the wonderfully successful Riverdale Farm Aid 2014 benefit, which thanks to all the enthusiastic support and dedication of it's volunteers and the community, raised the grand sum of $24,000! At the event, the map (commissioned by the RFSG) and created by Tim Zeltner was unveiled. and large archival prints were auctioned off to benefit the farm.
Tim Zeltner donated the original painting below to The Farm where it will be housed in the main 'Residence'
Below is one of the large archival quality prints Tim donated being auctioned off at the event!
There was a terrific crowd and the fundraising was a big success!
An awfully cute wooly resident of the farm, not too bothered by the crowd that night nibbles on some fresh local produce.
The fabulous Lemon Bucket Orkestra: A big hit!
Tour the Farm, visit the animals and chat with the farmer during daily chores. It's a delightful way to spend a day in the 'country' without leaving the city!
Congratulations to the Riverdale Farm Stewardship Group and thank you for caring so much and working so hard to preserve this very important part of the city of Toronto!
