Since I was 19, OMAR has been one of my favourite artists. So you can imagine my thrill when I was approached to brand his first Canadian concert in over a decade.
Years ago, I sent him a piece of art. In return, he sent me a cd which he signed:
"From one artist to another". Funny how things come full circle sometimes.
I decided to go with an illustrated appproach and marry it with some clean typesetting.
A DECADE OVERDUE
I'm glad that you asked:
"From one artist to another" - OMAR
It was such an honour to work with this team and to meet one of my favourite artists. This project came along at a time where I did not know just how much I needed it to. And like the ones that followed, I was made to feel respected and part of something important. The most cherished byproducts from this experience are the friendships forged from the production and execution of it. Life-changing concert for me. I felt like I beat the high score.
Another one of the highlights for me was an invitation to contribute 2 pieces to an art show inspired by the music of OMAR. This night was a separate experience that was really special to me and my wife (who helps me run our business). You can read all about it here. - What a night!
