Interior Decorating Show

I've been doing a lot of graphic design work for the Interior Decorating Show by Showcase Marketing. They also organize the International Home Show, the International Home and Garden Show and the Better Living Boomer Show. After a long break the Interior Decorating Show will open its doors to visitor on October 27 with a trade only day and will continue with three consumer days.The event will take place at the same time as the International Home Show.

I did the show's logo and brochure, and didn't think about exhibiting (since I don't have a brand new collection) until I was offered a complimentary booth. :-) And not only any booth, but a nice one right at the entrance and near the main stage. Now I have to look at the trade show walls I made a couple of years ago and make sure they stand and organize everything for move-in day.
Here is the show's brochure. I'll keep you posted about my booth number. I should receive it today. If you can make it, please stop by my booth and say hi!

The Peacock wallpaper at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria

It's been so long that I posted, that I almost forgot how to add a new post. I've been working on a lot of projects while trying to get back on the design horse at the same time.I have a lot of new images to share, amongst them a couple of wallpaper installation photos from Victoria, BC.

Toronto and New York based artist Shelly Bahl chose my wallpaper as part of her installation for an exhibition entitled "Collected Resonance" at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. Inspired by a short story about domestic psychological abuse and madness by Charlotta Perkins Gilman, Shelly Bahl explores issues of psychological violence and the historical phenomenon of "female hysteria" in her installation "The Peacock Wallpaper II".
The exhibition also features works by two other South Asian Canadian women artists who gather and create narratives informed by the mythologies and ideologies of their Hindu, Sikh and Muslim heritage.
The "Collected Resonance" will be open to the public between September 23, 2011 and January 8, 2012.
The following images are by Larry Pfister.

Project Selvage

Well, it's been a while..... Benjamin definitely keeps my hands full, but with this one he actually helped mommy. I decided to enter the Project Selvage baby boy fabric design contest presented by Spoonflower and Michael Miller Fabrics. Out of the 968 entries I made it to the semi finals. Check out the 75 designs by the semi finalists and vote for your favourites!

My entry has a farm theme. Benjamin loves farm animals and loves to imitate the sounds they make. He also loves tractors, anything that has wheels and even heavy machinery (who would have thought that a book full of yellow construction machines would be interesting to a one year old - looks like the most boring book to me...)! When the Bean saw my design, he started making Brrrrmmmm, Brrrrrmmmmm, Mooooo and other sounds. :-) I guess it was approved by him. :-) So, here is my entry:
