Village Hero – Dry Hopped Wheat Ale.
The customized design and art for the label, all done pro-bono to help raise funds for the Vancouver Foodbank.
The entire artwork.

In most of my artwork, I always try to embed Easter eggs for people to find and engage with the art. In my Village Hero piece, I tapped into the visually rich world of the Phillips Brewery brand. Examples of this are the unicorn and elephant riding high wheel bicycles, a blue buck, and a martian inside a flying saucer. I hope my artwork brings an extra layer of joy to the people enjoying this delicious brew.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

Ryan Reynolds is everywhere these days. Even on beer cans.

He and fellow British Columbia celebs Seth Rogen and Steve Nash appear, along with other notable locals, on an illustration called “It Takes a Village,” created by local designer Carson Ting this spring as a fundraiser organized by the Vancouver Whitecaps of Major League Soccer.

Now, that same art is being used as the label of “Village Hero,” a craft beer from the Whitecaps and Phillips Brewing, also benefitting the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.

Ting, who runs the Chairman Ting Art + Design Studio in town, created the cartoon artwork to commemorates Vancouver’s 7 p.m. ovations for healthcare professionals, emergency responders and sundry frontline workers serving the community during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The print, first sold in limited editions last month, has raised nearly $130,000 for the Food Bank so far. It also includes representations of provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and sign-language interpreter Nigel Howard, familiar figures from televised coronavirus updates.

WOW! Thank you, Vancouver! The past few days have been amazing to experience as we officially topped more than $100,000 mark (and still climbing) in just 2.5 days since the launch of this fundraiser for the Greater Vancouver Bank. The amount of media attention we’ve been getting has been absolutely stunning. Thank you to all the media that has given this project the spotlight because, without you and your coverage, we wouldn’t have been able to raise so much in such a short period of time. But, we are far from done and we’re still counting on all of you to keep this momentum going.

During these times, there’s been a real significant spike in demand for help from families that are struggling to put food on the tables. We are crazy proud of all the success we’ve been getting. It really does take a village. Big thanks to the Vancouver Whitecaps FC for spearheading the entire campaign and bringing us onboard (Kindred & Scout, Leah Gregg, Aiken Lao, Ryan Leeson, Hubert Kang, Amy Jones, Mike Southworth).

Get your print today (100% proceeds to directly to the Greater Vancouver Foodbank) and hopefully, we’ll hit another major milestone soon. Purchase yours today: https://www.ittakesavillage.shop/
