Bonjour et Bonne Journée Canada

I had a five day vacation and spent most of my days in Montreal and the remaining day in Vermont. I wish I were riding in a hot air balloon so I could go to places faster – there were so many things to see but so little time.

I went to see Jardin Daniel A. Seguin and Montreal Botanical garden in Quebec. Montreal Botanical garden was the biggest garden I have ever seen. It took us almost 8 hours to walk the whole place. After Canada I went to Vermont to visit one of my very best friends Sachan a.k.a the “craziest cat lady” and get to meet Goma in person. He was surprisingly elusive – I had to offer him bonito flakes to buy his affection.

Here are some photos from my vacation courtesy of Samuel Seo.

We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.

Hello Yellow!

Whole Foods Market teamed up with Chef Ann Cooper aka “The Renegade Lunch Lady’’ to launch the “School Lunch Revolution” campaign – a program that aims to transform and improve cafeteria menu across American public schools. To create some excitement amongst team members, I was asked to create buttons for the campaign. Here is the button in various colors. I like all of them but the yellow button is my favorite – I just love the color combination

– which led me to create this...

Some painters transform the sun into a yellow spot;
others transform a yellow spot into the sun.

Summer Posters

This is one of my latest creation. It does not have the perfect layout and the typography is average but I really like the colors. I don’t normally like my work but I like this one – it just looks fun. And I like the giant echinacea that she’s holding. I have not seen an echinacea this big. I would love to have this in my garden!

And here’s and older poster from the Kids Night event, inspired by one of my favorite movies – Happy Feet. Can you tell? I don’t like it as much especially the typography. This is one of my least favorite work.

I hope you all enjoy my posters.

Love is to the heart what the summer is to the farmer's year - it brings to harvest all the loveliest flowers of the soul.
