ICANDY CANVASES / artwork for retail and hospitality spaces - 2007-2009
Between 2007 and 2009, I designed and illustrated close to three hundred pieces of artwork for a company based in Grand Rapids called iCandy, which then manufactured them on 2' x 2' square canvases and sold and distributed them to retail stores, hotels, restaurants, and other hospitality spaces. This was a subsidiary of Printech, the large-format printing and fabrication company I worked at as a production designer for four years. The company (or at least its website) now seems to be defunct, so I'm showing a selection of the work here. Creating three hundred distinct images in a twelve-month period was a very exciting and fast-paced way to create a body of work that was experimental and had mass appeal.
