Why did you create “Moo Monarch”?
I created the Moo Monarch design with the theatrical quality I love so much. What could be more magical than a cow dressed and disguised as a Monarch Butterfly. One gentle animal wishing to be another. What if we could try on wings and fly like a Monarch Butterfly?
I love the Monarch grove in Pismo beach and thought this would be a beautiful way to show respect and pay tribute to this amazing place.
My concept of creating a fabulous cow pretending to be a monarch was something we can all relate to. I believe we all want to be something different at one time or another in our lives… even if for only a moment. So why not make cows fly like a Monarch Butterfly?
Why did you create “See Cow Do”?
See Cow Do is a pirate of life!!! Protecting the environment and experiencing the magical beauty of California, travel, adventure and fun. All of these elements are intertwined! The images of Tahoe, Pebble Beach’s iconic lone Cypress, Mt Shasta, Yosemite, Death Valley, Monterey Bay Aquarium, California Missions, San Diego Zoo are threaded throughout…
