Logo For Local Handmade Bamboo Fly Fishing Rod Business In Fernie BC

Harrison-Edge Cane bamboo fly rods logo - Fernie BC

Have you heard about Harrison-Edge Cane Bamboo Fly Rods in Fernie BC? Peter hand crafts each rod and apparently they’re amazing (I don’t fly fish…but maybe I should). He needed a new logo so I took his scribbles and replicated it on my computer. Done and done.

Instagram : Attraction

I started working on this painting around¬†October 23rd, 2014. Today I called it done. Just over 2 years! Not bad. It’s been a journey, to say the least. It’s a painting I have enjoyed making from the second it started. I didn’t always know where I was going with it but once that island was in place, I knew exactly what had to happen next. Today it’s called “Attraction” because something is drawing all these people, animals, insects and plants to this island in the middle of nowhere.

Back At Work…Graphic Work, That Is

I took some time away from my computer while my children needed their mom but now that they’re a little older I’m finding some time to get work done.¬†Here are some samples of work I’ve been doing, in the graphic design world, in the past year.

Fernie Lantern Festival – marketing material
Fernie Seniors – Logo Design
Burma Road Estates – Logo Design
E-Save-The-Date for some friends – local wedding stationery
Bright Beginnings Community Preschool – website and social media

Moving Forward

Brina Schenk Illustrations - white frames - black and white drawings

I have all these drawings in my house. Tons of them. I’ve been drawing and painting almost every day for along time and my walls, storage and drawers are starting to fill up. Maybe, it’s time I start thinking about what I’m going to do with them all. I certainly can’t part with a few of them yet, we’re still in a relationship, but some of the other ones, I think I should try and say goodbye…or “until we meet again.”

A few white frames were purchased, just to see what some of my illustrations look inside them…and I got even more excited. They look fabulous!

Shy Girl’s Debut At Wapiti Music Festival 2016

Shy Girl - Tacki's Cure - Debut at Wapiti Music Festival

How time flies! Just last year I was developing this little character who was shy and curious and full of wonder. Now this character is in her own story and I’m showing a part of it to the people at Wapiti Music Festival in my home town of Fernie. I’ve been busy! Here’s the link to Wapiti Music Festival for more information : wapitimusicfestival.com

Thanks to Sandra Boer for pushing me (a gentle push) to show my story in her first WonderWalk. It’s a work in progress so I’d love to hear what you thought of the story and the WonderWalk. We had such a good time making it, we would love to show you more. You can take this easy survey to let us know if you’d like to see more.

A HUGE shout out to Bob (sorry, Bob, I don’t know your last name) for making the beautiful displays and putting so much time and care in to making the WonderWalk the success that I know it will be.

Since this is my website, I can brag a little. At Wapiti Music Festival you’ll be able to see my work beyond the WonderWalk. I have submitted a painting to the ArtExpo and I also did some illustrative work for the RDEK’s compost pilot program, which will be displayed at their tent. I’m everywhere! Plus, I’ll be dancing in the crowd…so come say hi!

In Progress : New Painting “Hold On”

hold on - background and strange size

Tall and thin is not my preferred canvas style but it’s the leftovers from our roll of canvas so sometimes you have to work with something you’re not comfortable with and, I guess, that’s okay. After a few playful experiments with the background, I figured out what I wanted to do. I’m back with hands again! It’s going to be great, though. I’m looking forward to this piece. For me it’s about the things you Hold On to both good and bad – memories, objects, desires etc.
