'Nightwatch' Tent for Fieldcandy by Heliocyan 'Nightwatch' Tent for Fieldcandy by Heliocyan
I am very happy I can *finally* share this project with you!

Although I had uploaded first sketches and showed little sneak peaks before, I had to keep it quiet for over a year while working on it - and everyone who does creative work knows how hard this can be.

I collaborated with Fieldcandy to design this artwork for a new tent which has only just been launched. Fieldcandy produces colourful, high-quality tents, most of them are limited editions.

I designed and painted three artworks on huge canvas especially for the layout of this tent: The front and back piece, and additionally a lot of leaves and bushes to merge the sides so they will match up. The idea was to create a fun and colourful ‘3D’ artwork, showing the front as well as the back side of a resting tiger - instead of merely showing two different pictures on both sides of the tent - so one could walk around ‘him’.

All profits from each individual tent is going directly and exclusively to the wildlife organisation ‘Save Wild Tigers’ and will go entirely towards tiger conservation projects. Nothing better than mixing design and art with conservation!

Please do feel free to share and spread the word, here is the link to the Fieldcandy website:…

Oooh, looking at other pictures of this in your gallery, I think I found one I'd already faved, which got a daily deviation almost exactly four years ago (the painting you based the tent on?). That's kind'a interesting.
It turned out really nice, by the way. ^_^

Finally, a good reason to go camping: an excuse to sleep in this super rad tent.
