Get Unreal with Sheena Pike!

Sep 25, 2017

For Canadian illustrator Sheena Pike, there was just something rather uninspiring about drawing realism and, after years of chasing perfection with her pencils, she eventually lost interest in drawing altogether.

Turning to graphic design as an alternative creative outlet, Sheena switched gears and took a hiatus from drawing. However, the universe had other plans for her future as an artist and there eventually came a day when Sheena once again found a pencil in her hand.

With a fresh perspective and a dream of achieving commercial success, Sheena began to rediscover and reinterpret her imagination, experiencing her creativity in new and exciting ways.

“When I began envisioning my drawings as products, the possibilities, the ideas, and my ambitions were endless. I began enjoying my work significantly more, and it greatly reflected in my creativity.”

Inspired by many things, Sheena enjoys exploring the beautiful, imaginative world of pop surrealism by combining realistic and illustrative styles. Whimsy and otherworldly, her work often evokes an intensity, giving you a glimpse into her creative mind and the way she sees the world.

Sheena Pike was featured in Colored Pencil Magazine’s Winter 2015 issue, as well as a 2016 article highlighting her mixed media techniques. Check out the latest issue of Colored Pencil Magazine to read more about Sheena and her journey to becoming the stunningly talented artist she is today!

Bill Jackson was featured in Doodlewash!

Sep 05, 2016

Congratulations to our artist, Bill Jackson, as he was recently featured as a guest artist in the Doodlewash website!

Doodlewash is a place where artists go to inspire and motivate each other.  The featured article about Bill Jackson takes you through his journey to become a watercolor artist.  From his early dreams of being a movie star, through the “disco era” where he was a fashion design student at Parson’s School of Design, to present day where he is a licensed artist.

Bill says: “These days, I vacillate between ‘fine art’ and painting for textiles. I also create images for Home Décor… For these images, I combine hand painted motifs with digital patterning techniques I picked up over my years in the textile industry. When time allows, I like to paint in a series.”

Toy Fair 2016

Feb 23, 2016

Last Monday, Syrena hopped on the train in Albany and a few short hours later, she arrived in the heart of the Big Apple. She grabbed a taxi and headed straight for the Javits Center. After getting a much needed Caramel Macchiato, she was ready to seize the day!

This year, the Toy Fair opened its doors to thousands of registered global play professionals to explore a record-breaking 415,000 net square feet filled with thousands of toys, games and youth entertainment products. It is the largest toy and youth product marketplace in the Western Hemisphere. There are 150,000+ products at the show, but we were there for the puzzles and the adult coloring products (adult coloring books, puzzles, mugs, posters, and even socks)!  

At the show, Syrena met with clients to review art, discuss new opportunities and even play with a few of the toys! The Toy Fair is a grown child’s dream come true! Everywhere you look there is something fun to play with. Walking down the aisles of booths, people are tossing toys over your head, bubbles are floating around and people are even riding the toys around. She saw lots of fantastic puzzles with art from our artists made by various manufactures as well as some other products like flash cards.

The buzz at the show was all about coloring.  She was so excited to see adult coloring books with art from our artist, Hello Angel on display.

The day was action packed and lots of fun, but all good things must come to an end. She hopped back on the train and headed north… back to reality in Vermont.  

You can see all of the photos from her journey in Toy Fair album on our Facebook.
