Egle Zvirblyte has been commissioned to create a series of illustrations for New Zealand-based Thai restaurant Gogo Daddy Canteen. The illustrations, which include tigers, dogs and bananas wearing glasses deliver more of what we’ve come to know and love from the Lithuanian illustrator.
Placed on a baby-pink background, the characters can be found making their way through bowls and bowls of food, riding each other’s shoulders or selling prawns at a pop-up shack. Presented as individual moments, the lively characters also come together in a busy scene on a series of posters.
Gogo Daddy is Mark Wallbank and Che Barrington’s new eatery serving street-style Thai food out of Auckland, New Zealand. “We’ve eaten our way through Thailand, from roadside carts in Chiang Mai to the floating markets of Bangkok. This menu is our take on rustic Thai street food, inspired by our travels,” the pair write on their website. Egle’s illustrations reflect the fun and vibrancy that Mark and Che experienced in Thailand and are utilised across menus, table markers, staff t-shirts, house-made drink labels, the website and online presence, as well as a large-scale mural inside the restaurant.
