PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Miller Paint has collaborated with Portland artist Mike Bennett––the artist behind famed cartoon characters and memes painted onto plywood and hidden around the city––and three other local organizations to bring hope and smiles to families in this time of quarantine.

Bennett’s “The Hopefuls: Five Friends Made to Make Us Smile” features characters who represent the natural world. They include Flora, an energetic, colorful flower; Fawna, a shy, kind deer; Sol, a warm and bright sunshine; Bo, a happy, hopeful rainbow; and Drizzy, aka Drizzle, a gentle and soft-spoken raindrop.
