Ryan Fairweather

Ryan M. Thunder Fairweather is a Calgary-based artist going by the tag Strawberry Milk, a name that personifies his supercute approach to character design. Primarily a hot glass artist who co-founded the award-winning studio, Bee Kingdom, in 2005, Fairweather has brought his colourful characters to life using blown glass, digital illustration, inflatable fabric, and now, for the first time ever, paint! He’s been published in design books and magazines, and he’s exhibited in galleries and museums in cities including Athens, new York, Monterrey, Cheong-ju, Winnipeg, the Glenbow Museum in Calgary, the Pergamon Museum in Berlin, and was a featured artist at the 2012 Pictoplasma Character Festival in Berlin.
