How Binky and Bell came to be:

"Rick Gardner and Mark Bell met in 2013 through a networking group at Colonial Baptist Church called Colonial Job Seekers. They discovered they were both passionate about their hobbies, Rick about dogs and Mark about woodworking. Together they collaborate to create original cartoon dog art to support homeless pets through rescue groups, shelters and other non-profits.

For Rick, dogs bring joy, happiness, unconditional love, and a passion to capture these feelings and share with them others. Mark looks to bring out the beauty in the wood, celebrate its texture and grains, and enhance the dog art creations of Rick.

Rick’s influences include James Thurber, Charles Schulz and numerous modern day graphic artists. Mark’s influences include his background growing up in the suburbs of Detroit and Boston as well his professional experiences in Germany and Switzerland."
