For this piece, Benda is riding a bike and he is his passenger is dressed in one of the Guo Pei gowns (you may remember the coat as Rihanna wore it at the MET gala). The composition is very nice and I love the dreamy vibe of it. The Chinese style clouds add a retro edge to the illustration. I personally like this piece a lot!
Ben Liu was nominated by Mahyar Kalantari in the last “episode” of #TakeoverDrawADot on instagram. Ben accepted the challenge and on October 19th, he and his son BENDA took over the Draw A Dot. account and answered 5 questions with illustrations.
If you have seen my personal Instagram account, you should know that this year I have teamed up with BENDA (Ben Liu) to create the Holiday Card. The card has already printed out, but we will not release the illustration online until mid December. However, if you want to be one of the first to own the physical card (and to know which brand inspired this card), here is your chance!
