  • Aren’t these awesome? One of our commenters said it best: it’s like one of those guys that draws hyper-realistic portraits of celebrities at a kiosk in the mall actually being creative and inventive.

  • So rad! I love the first illustration…

  • I’m a HUGE fan of Derek’s work, check out the interview I did with him :)


  • Wow I love them. So amazing I don’t even have words.

    I like Dylan’s comment a lot… Also, the dude in the mugshot definitely looks like a child molester :/

    duuuuuude! party face! haha I had a friend show me how to do that trick where you shake your face and take a photo for that awesome effect! Since I’m not huge drinker I just like to get into the middle of a crowd of drunk people and show them the trick and set them loose to collect some digital gold!

  • these are wonderful! so interesting to look at. My eyes are engaged -tys

Vancouver-Based OURO Collective Present “Tangent”

Last week we shot some rehearsal footage of our friends, Vancouver-based dance collective OURO, as they prepared for their first full-length show, “Tangent”. The group has spent the past year exploring movements from each member’s diverse dance background to create a story. Their unique voice is a combination of street and contemporary dance twisted into a language all its own.

For this show they’ve also collaborated with Vancouver artist Kutcorners to create original music inspired by their movements, which will be released on Spotify shortly!

We are proud to be a media partner for OURO’s two performances this week at Orpheum’s Annex theatre (May 25th/26th). If you live in Vancouver come check it out! Their work is fun, accessible and inspiring, regardless of your knowledge of dance. There are only two performances and tickets are going fast (previous shows on Granville Island sold out completely).

Tickets: Get your tickets HERE.
