Buzzer Illustrator Interview: Mouki Butt

Mouki (well, her interpretation of herself at least) and her illustration!

Mouki (well, her interpretation of herself at least) and her illustration!

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a…bus!

The cover of this summer’s Buzzer print edition is inspired by both transit and the Women’s World Cup.

Featuring the wonderful work of Mouki Butt, the cover of the June 2015 issue captures the excitement of the FIFA event while still remaining true to our transportation roots.

We were lucky enough to do a quick interview with Mouki about her work:

Who is Mouki Butt?

I’m an illustrator who loves to draw all things cute.

Describe your illustration style in three words.

Cute, clean, colourful.

How did you arrive at this illustration? What was your inspiration?

With such a big soccer event happening this month, and so many attendees taking transit, it seemed appropriate to incorporate both.

Have you ever drawn a flying bus before? Any Keanu Reeves/Speed inspired drawings in the past?

No, this was my first flying bus, but it won’t be my last.

In our last interview you said you love taking the SkyTrain. Still riding and taking in those views?

Yes! The SkyTrain is great! I see so many wonderful faces when taking transit. It’s very inspirational for illustrating.

Any cool summer plans?

Exploring more of BC, stargazing, and swimming in the ocean.

Thanks Mouki! Haven’t picked-up the June 2015 issue of the Buzzer yet? You can download it here!
