Illustrator Dave Murray is thrilled to add not one but two Canada Post stamps to his long list of achievements. Dave was doubly honoured to be awarded such a prestigious assignment on such a vital subject matter. Intrigued by insects from an early age Dave was more than happy to lend his signature geometric style to the crucial task of keeping bees in the forefront of people's minds. The importance of Bombus affinis (on the endangered species list since 2017), Agapostemon virescens and Anthidiellum Notatum in terms of pollination and food production cannot be underestimated.
Dave had the pleasure of collaborating with longtime stamp designer and Design Director at Craib Design & Communications, Andrew Perro. The stamps, affectionately referred to as the ‘transformer bees’ successfully bring together great design and great illustration.
