Jess in the HAUS Part IV - Maiko Watson

Hey everybody, it's been a minute! Hope everyone is enjoying this weird summer Toronto seems to be having! 

We're excited today for part IV of ongoing series "Jess in the Haus" with fabulous hair and makeup artist Jessica Haisinger featuring the ethereally amazing, Toronto's very own Award winning, singer & songwriter Maiko Watson! She graciously serenaded us at the shoot in a video clip you need to head on over to our Instagram page to check out, we pretty much forgot what human bodily functions were at that moment!

Go check out all of Miss Maiko's socials below and if you can you must watch her live, your ears will graciously thank you for it!

Branding by Haus Wild - ASHE -

Hey everyone, it's been a minute!
Happy summer of 2017 and we hope everyone's keeping cool and enjoying patio season!

Here is our latest branding project for electronic music producer ASHE, who you might remember from some awesome portraits we took of him last year, which you can find on our photography page! This time around we worked on the graphic design aspect of his brand creating both a logo type and mark for him taking into account his minimalistic, stark, alien-esque style of aesthetic.

The Wild Card Project - Produce Patterns

Hey everyone! Welcome to a new series in "The Wild Card Project" entitled "Produce Patterns"!

For this series we grabbed a whole bunch of produce from our weekly fruit and vegetable baskets from one of Toronto's locally sourced food delivery service, Mama Earth, a lot of watercolour paints, brushes, palettes and the one thing we couldn't have as a kid, A BOTTLE OF WINE for further inspiration! What ensued was a whole lot of mayhem, laughter, art and ruined shirts but it resulted in the amazing prints you see up top! 

Check out our step by step guide below and go create your own patterns!

STAY WILD FOLKS! 

Art of Word - "ZOOM" : The Finale

Hey everyone!

It's a bittersweet post for us today seeing as we have come to the end of an era, it is the final Art of Word Sunday! We can't wrap our heads around the fact that it's been a full year since we started this journey with all of you, our Sunday's will definitely be a little less creative (till the next project seeing as we are incapable of sitting still) from now on. For those of you who appreciate statistics that's 52 weeks with 3 art pieces every week resulting in a whopping 156 works of art individually!

As a recap, here are the project scopes:
3 girls.
1 word per week as the inspiration for the art.
A predetermined colour palette.
The square format.
We reveal the result to each other at the end of the week.

To relive a year full of art, passion and inspiration head on over to our Art of Word page where you can see the entire timeline of the project!

It's like saying goodbye to a dear old friend that has been a constant by our side for so long but we do so knowing how much we have enjoyed not only the results but most especially the process! We hope you have enjoyed the ride along with us as much as we have and we thank all of you for supporting us!

Au revoir and thank you "Art of Word".

Here's a behind the scenes look into our shoot, shot by Neil Austen of FlyHomeFreedom Productions. 

Hello everyone!

WE ARE SO SO SOOOO EXCITED FOR TODAY'S BLOG POST!!!

Our Wild in the 6 project, where we photograph and interview fellow residents of this fantastic city we all call home, just got a little more seductive and bad ass! All due to a woman named Tanya Grossi, who is is the owner and creator of The Darling Mansion, a fantastical home, AirB&B and creative space.

From the outside, you wouldn't be able to tell that this home nestled within the core of Toronto's west end neighbourhood, hides so much magic, mystery and intrigue. Come fall into the rabbit hole with us as we take you through the epic tale of Tanya and her mansion. Head on over to our WILD IN THE 6 page for our interview with the lady at the helm of the house!

Art of Word - YOUTH -

Hey everyone! Happy Sunday!

The sun is out and one can only hope that Summer is finally making it's way slowly into the city! Now here's a little tidbit that blew our minds, next week is the last Art of Word, WHAT?? When did a whole year go by? We're still baffled but we hope you've enjoyed the ride with us as much as we have! 

This week's piece is based on a word that we feel everyone tries to hold on to for as long as possible and what we've come to learn is really just a state of mind, here is "Youth".

Till next week,

Art of Word - Wild -

Happy Sunday everyone!!

We are so excited today for many reasons, one being that the weather is finally cooperating with the winds of Spring and another being that we are on our final month of Art of Word! Can you believe it's been almost a year? Time flies by so quickly in this day and age, so take a moment to appreciate life and enjoy some art! We were particularly anticipating the last month because we wanted to have a free for all in terms of a colour palette for the last month and coincidentally it starts with the word WILD! How perfect is that?

So soak in some sun today, have a glass of sangria and enjoy some Art of Word from our Haus to yours! Cheers!

Till next time,

The Wild Ones

Art of Word - Vibrant -

Till then,

Art of Word - Texture -

Hey everyone, happy Sunday!

It's such a beautiful day out, almost makes us think that Spring is finally making an appearance but we know better than to trust Toronto weather, we wouldn't be surprised if tomorrow a snow storm came hurling back in! But hey, let's try to be positive and not jinx such things. As you've noticed, we've entered into a new colour palette that is bright and will hopefully coerce some warmth out, this week's piece is based on the word "Texture".

We hope you enjoy our weekly Art of Word and your day, till next time!

The Wild Ones

Art of Word - Shiver -

Hey everyone, happy Sunday! 

This week's piece is based on the word "Shiver" and it's also the last of this colour palette. Next week we move on to a classic blue and yellow colour combination, so excited to see how that turns out and share it with all of you!

Stay warm Toronto! Only a little more till beautiful Spring in the city!

Cheers,

The Wild Card Project - Quintessence

Hello everyone, welcome to a brand new entry into The Wild Card Project! This series is entitled "Quintessence" and it all started off with an accidental disaster that turned into the art you see today, read on to find out what happened!

The story starts off with a plastic bin of delicious fruits and vegetables that were delivered to us by our favourite local food delivery company Mama Earth, which we unknowingly set on a warm electric stove after offloading all the produce. Within a few minutes we encountered what we all know as the wonderful smell of burning plastic and the inevitable face palm that followed our actions promptly thereafter. 

This was what happened to the poor unfortunate bin:

Once the stove had cooled down we were fascinated to see what was left behind, the melted plastic somehow remind us of preserved fossils or creatures you would see through the lens of a microscope. So of course we had to put them on a lamp (who needs a light table?) and photograph it, the following are some of the images we captured!

Crazy how that came out of a fruit and vegetable bin! You never know how beautiful things can come out of pre judged disasters, there's a lesson in there somewhere if I've ever heard of one. Being as we can never sit still we decided to take it one step further and play around in photoshop resulting in the following artwork:

We hope you enjoyed this installation of The Wild Card Project, check out our other experiments HERE! Till the next one!
