I am beyond thrilled to reveal my biggest – and tastiest – project to date: this colossal 12'x20' custom mural for the beautiful new Chocolats Favoris in Aurora, Ontario. From their website:
We opened our little artisanal shop that made traditionally crafted chocolate on in Lauzon, located on the south shore of Québec City. In those days, the shop specialized primarily in making chocolate for Easter. Gradually, as time passed, our artisans started to develop more and more products, using European knowledge and expertise as their inspiration for making chocolate that was more to the taste of people here. Having started out as simple chocolate makers, we have now become master chocolatiers and a recognized leader in the world of chocolate gastronomy.Below are some sketches and process photos:
I would like to thank the entire Chocolats Favoris team for making this one of the most exciting, rewarding projects that I have ever worked on. In particular, special thanks to Jill, Geneviève, Virginie, and Brian. Thanks also to Rob for lending his projector, and to Paul for helping with the second and third coats. Merci beaucoup!
Be sure to shop by this special chocolate shop in Aurora. I can't wait to return.
