Phuong-Mai Bui-Quang With P.M.B.Q. Studio An American Artist
P.M.B.Q. Studios is an art studio founded by Phuong-Mai Bui-Quang in sunny San Jose, CA. We started drawing manga (Japanese style comics) as professionals in 1993, and thought we'd always be doing that. From 2001 - 2003, we drew our own action-comedy comic called Tea Club.

Panda Cafe And Bakery Mural 2015, Artist: Phuong-Mai Bui-Quang, With P.M.B.Q. Studio, Additional Art: Jocko Giacomelli, Amenda Hing, Melissa Le, Melissa Song, Jimmy Tran, Catherine Vasper and Jen Yuen, San Jose, California

Our first panda character was Big Butt Panda. As the years went by, he overtook the Tea Club characters as the most popular one. We finally gave up our quest of being prolific manga artists and have embraced our reality of being Panda artists! P.M.B.Q. artwork can be seen on t-shirts, art prints, comics, toys and also on a public mural in downtown San Jose, CA.[from P.M.B.Q. Studio's website]
