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.

Like many of you, the recent events that have unfolded in the U.S. and Canada have been truly incomprehensible. It’s hard to articulate the anger and frustration seeing how racism is still a large part of our lives in this day and age. As a first-generation Chinese Canadian (born and raised) I have experienced my fair share of racism as a kid but nothing in comparison to what Black people experience. I can only imagine their struggles and because of this, I’ve been inspired to illustrate this piece called ‘United Colours of Humanity’ to capture the spirit of our global community rising up against racism, specifically, about anti-Black racism and police brutality. 

Here’s a link put together by Daily Hive that lists all Black-owned businesses and mutual aid funds you can support in Vancouver. We will continue to show our support in every way we can. FYI, there will be an anti-racism protest happening at Canada Place today at 4pm in Vancouver.

Also, here’s a cool link to support black designers that I found through my old partner in crime, Keri Zierler called Blacks Who Design: https://blackswho.design/

UPDATE: SOLD. This piece is no longer available. 100% Proceeds went to Black Lives Matter Vancouver.

We’ve already received a few purchasing inquiries about this piece. It’s yours if you donate a minimum of $100 to Black Lives Matter Vancouver. We will need a visual confirmation receipt of donation and this 1 of 1 piece will be yours.

Title: Paint Me Silver
Medium: KRINK Silver paint, Molotow Acrylic, Posca paint on Russian Birch Wood
Dimensions: 16″ x 16″ (1.5″ deep)

This was the first time I did an IG live video where I painted live alongside the talented comic book artist Stefan Tosheff on the @Snagart channel. It was a little odd at first mostly because I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to draw but literally minutes before going live, I had a visual in my head and just went for it. This piece is called ‘Paint Me Silver‘ named after one of my favourite tracks by POND – Had a blast using my favourite Krink K75 silver marker and POSCAS. This bad boy is up for grabs: https://www.32auctions.com/snagart

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/

All will be well despite all the chaos out there.

We hope everyone is staying healthy and positive during these strange COVID times. It’s during these times that we are reminded of all the love we have all around us. Every day we get phone calls, emails, messages and more from family, friends, associates, old co-workers and more. Although we are practicing physical social distancing by working from home, we feel more connected to all our family and friends than ever.

Oddly enough, we are actually more busy than usual and we’re very grateful for this. We are working on a couple of very exciting projects that have been keeping our spirits high and hopeful for a brighter and stronger future for all. We can’t wait to share all the work we’ve been busy chipping away at, but until then, please stay safe at home. All will be well.
Spiritually, we will see you all tonight at 7pm to thank all the modern heroes that are courageously fighting in the front lines to keep us all safe.

How’s everyone doing? Here’s a quick update from us working from home.

We hope everyone is staying healthy, positive and more importantly, staying away from other people by staying home.

As we’ve been working from home, we try to keep our daily routine as normal as possible by keeping our work hours the same and schedule daily status calls with Aiken, our studio manager.

Luckily our lovely clients are still keeping us busy so for the most part, it’s business as usual.

Being stuck inside doesn’t mean we can’t paint murals digitally at home. Here’s a quick mockup of one of our favourite murals we created and was digitally installed in our townhome in the west end.

A digital mockup of the mural in our home in the west end.

This illustrated map of Vancouver was a commissioned illustration piece for CMPNY under the creative direction of Chris Zawada, partner and head of creative at Full Punch. Stay home and creative.

Here are a few close-ups of the illustration:
