If you’ve been reading this blog for the past few months, you’ve noticed that Henry’s Marketplace, my local produce store, has some funny graphic designers working for them. They like to use farm animals, mostly cows and pigs, on the cover of their monthly flyer (see Henry’s March 2011 and April 2011 issues).
The front cover of Henry’s May 2011 flyer is dedicated to Mother’s Day and no exception to this year’s animalistic trend. And what illustrates the maternal figure better than a dairy cow?
Flowers and coffee beans. Those Henry’s people know how to pamper moms and make them feel happy and beautiful! Now, take a closer look at the two little pigs. I think this occurrence is a first:
Notice the little pig on the left holding a “Happy Mother’s Day” card in his mouth. Add the multiple balloons held by both pigs, “#1 Mom”, “Happy Mother’s Day”. I thought cows and pigs were best friends, but this stretching my imagination even further. This cow has actually adopted the two piglets! And they seem very thankful for it. This mom deserves a lot of credit. Can you imagine having to change the pigs’ stinky diapers? Now that’s what I call unconditional mommy love!
