We’re all swept up in Shanghai’s opening weekend, but I didn’t want to wait another moment to congratulate the fantastic design team that is Meomi (aka, Vicki Wong and Michael Murphy). When I first got word that they were responsible for the Vancouver Olympics mascots, I was doubly happy. Firstly, because I’m a huge fan of them as illustrators, and secondly because this represents a savvy design move on the part of the Olympics. Click over to Meomi’s Olympics flickr set and you’ll see what I mean.
We try to keep their Octonauts series in the museum store, but I’m expecting their books to sell out as quickly as Oliver Chin’s Year of the Tiger books did for our Lunar New Year celebration last weekend. Obviously, I am powerless when confronted by the charms of a cartoon Sasquatch.
