The Chairman’s work in the press

Herschel Supply x Vancouver Mural Fest Instagram story feature.

I am extremely grateful for all the shine I’ve been getting with all the projects I’ve been working on through my studio. Last week Herschel Supply put out a feature for Annie Chen and I through their Instagram stories.

It was a feature talking about our recent collaboration for our studio mural in the Westend (Nelson and Nicola) for this year’s Vancouver Mural Festival.

Our mural titled ‘Westend Bestend’ features everything that defines the Westend. In particular, my mural features Joe Fortes (A prominent figure in the early history of Vancouver, and the city’s first official lifeguard.) heading west towards English Bay and a great blue Heron taking flight while Annie’s mural is made up of beautiful patterns and cute tiny critters. Both murals converge at the tip of Nelson and Nicola with a two-faced raccoon which you’ll need to see in person for the full effect.

Big thanks to the Herschel Supply team for coming out to document our work and for the interview. Visit @herschelsupply on Instagram stories to go through our entire interview.

Very excited and proud to be part of another amazing initiative. This time we are helping the Vancouver Aquarium continue to raise funds to keep their doors open.

Our very good friend Alex Beim that runs the award-winning design studio, Tangible Interaction invited us to join forces with them, The Vancouver Mural Festival, and Ocean Wise to help contribute to the new Aqua Colour App.

The app is a free download for iPhone and Android – an interactive, digital colouring book for tablets and phones inspired by the Vancouver Aquarium. Simply use your finger or stylus to select colours and brush sizes, fill and shade areas, add stickers and save or share your work.

We are proud to be contributing our art alongside other mega talents like Joanna Ambrosio, Alison Woodward and Ben Tour.

We live very close to the Vancouver Aquarium so naturally, we often take our daughter there to learn and have fun. The Vancouver Aquarium plays a very important role in our city and we can’t imagine not having it around. Being able to use our skillset to help raise funds for the Vancouver Aquarium is heartwarming and empowering.

The app is downloadable on the App Store and Google Play and proceeds go to the aquarium.

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.

Grateful for the feature on Muse by Clio. Read the full article here.

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/
