Moss Street Paint In Preview #1

Just a reminder for those in the Victoria area on July the 19th - I'll be demonstrating my working methods, showing my art and selling prints, original artwork and more at the 27th annual TD Art Gallery Paint In from 11am to 4:30 pm. 180 visual artists will be doing the same along the 2 kms of Moss Street in Victoria from the Art Gallery to the Dallas Rd waterfront. 

My area will be a block or two up from Dallas Rd side - I hope to see you there! 

In the meantime I'll be previewing the new art, publications, and more (greeting cards, etc) here over the next 20 days that will be on display and sale for the first time at the Paint In. Today's post features some brand new original art cards - small, 2.5" x 3.5" original gouache paintings on illustration board at an affordable price.

Inspired by the Dark Horse Comics Star Wars Omnibus: Wild Space Vols 1 and 2 reprints of my kids comics work with Ken Steacy (in bookstores now!) these have Star Wars themes including preproduction prototype villains, and Cantina aliens. More to come in both these sets, plus a third SW set as well.

New Books!

I'm pleased to announce that the first two books (of four) in the 25th anniversary editions of the million-selling youth series "My Teacher is an Alien" went on sale  last week in hardcover. I designed, illustrated and hand-lettered the four wraparound covers for the fine folks at Aladdin (a division of Simon and Schuster) and look forward to the final two books when they're released in September. Ask for them at you favorite bookstore or online! (Box set version pictured above)
