This last weekend I had a table at a local Vancouver market, the Eastside Flea, where I sold some of my classic beloved items such as Beef Buddy cards, prints, and some exclusive copies of TomatoPotato (all of which are available online in my Etsy shop). I would like to say thank you to everyone who came by, told me how cool my stuff was, and supported the Land of Le Beef.
Every year I like to draw something special for my daughter's birthday (you might remember last year's illustration featuring Maddy soaring on the back of her Alphapup over a city of blocks). This year I thought it would be fun to create a yearbook page featuring her toys. Just like classmates, some of them will be forgotten immediately, while a select few may be a special part of her life for a long time. I created this print so that she could look back on her toys later on and say, 'I wonder whatever happened to that guy?'.
If your kid has any favourite toys, send me a photo at the Land of Le Beef Etsy shop, and your child can have their own illustrated version.
if you like beavers and giraffes, and happy smiley vegetables, then this blog post is going to make you happy...
the Land of Le Beef was recently commissioned by Woodland (Hong Kong's top preschool, with 10 great locations throughout the city) to create not one, but two murals at their Waterfall school in Pokfulam.
this of course was a big beefy project (these would be my largest illustrations to date*). i knew that the murals would not only need be super awesome and fun to look at, but also needed to be educational, and inspire the children to do great things with their lives.
i sat down at my desk, pencil in hand, and started drafting what would become the greatest thing since the Sistine Chapel. below are the results.
*shortly after completing these murals, Woodland invited me back to create an even BIGGER mural at their newest, most awesome location on Caine Road. blog post to come soon...........
if this is your very first time seeing pictures of animals holding signs that say happy birthday, then congratulations - you've just discovered Birthday Buddies!
