Murals and Hoarding

Elva's first love is painting. Her range of techniques and styles makes every creative vision come to life. Whether it be a ceiling or wall in your child bedroom or a grand hall in need of a focal point or statement Sketchbook can realize your dream.
We occasionally work with other mural artists when a project requires a larger crew. You can see samples of our work with Walter Ruston using the mural gallery link. Walter is well known for his work at the Gladstone Hotel and around the GTA. Check the MURAL GALLERY

Illustration

Traditional Illustration is still the cornerstone of the commercial art world. With new and innovative digital tools the trained illustrator can produce unique images with the added convenience of being ready to use without scans and photography. This greatly reduces the cost of bringing original art to your project.

3-Dimensional Art

Our diverse skills for creative problem solving have brought unique challenges into the studio. From a styrofoam polar bear for Stanfield's underwear campaign to a glass sculpture for Consumers Glass, a 4ft high coffee cup - doll heads for Bell Cellular and mannequin customizing. Sculpture can be an interesting way to go when you are looking for something truly unique.
