Hi! I'm Marcus. Welcome to my website! I'm a graphic designer and illustrator based in beautiful Vancouver, BC.
My work is characteristically bold, colourful, and celebratory; drawing inspiration in equal measure from retro video games, vintage maps and travel posters, and the stunning natural beauty of my adoptive home.
I specialize in print media, and, in addition to making myself available for commissions, many of my creations are available to buy as posters, stickers, or apparel.
I invite you to spend a few moments getting to know me and my art, and please don't hesitate to reach out if you feel so inclined!
Calling all Vancouver designers, visual artists, entrepreneurs and DIY-types! I am the organizer and convenor of the Vancouver Designers + Creatives group on meetup.com. If you're new in town or just looking to make some new creative friends, come and check us out!
A Newfoundlander by birth, I relocated to British Columbia in 2009 and have been hard at work building a life of conscious self-direction in Vancouver ever since. Artistically, I draw inspiration from a wide range of sources, owing as much to the beauty and wonder of the natural world as I do to vintage maps, comic books, and video games.
Since 2015, my artwork has made its way into thousands of homes throughout BC and internationally, and I have had the privilege of working with some truly wonderful clients and partners (a few of which are listed below).
The vast majority of my work is self-initiated, and this has been absolutely integral to my newfound success as a designer. I create for myself first and foremost, and regard my work as a means of celebrating and expressing gratitude for all of the beauty, joy, and abundance in my life. Many of my creations are then made available through my online store, local retail partners, or at events and festivals.
Outside the realm of the creative arts, I am passionately interested in the exploration of human potential, consciousness, and spirituality. I envision a prosperous, peaceful and sustainable future for all life on this planet, and believe that art and creative expression have an integral role to play in helping to raise consciousness and inspire personal and collective change.
Some of my clients and project partners have included:
