 Great thanks to the hundreds of wonderful folks who stopped by my table at the TD Art Gallery Paint-In.

The weather was hot and sunny, but the turnout was amazing and my gratitude to all those who walked away with original art, prints, greeting cards, books and comics.

Sorry to those who missed out on some things that we sold out on - I promise to be stocked up again at my next appearance in the fall. Oh, and thanks to Marilyn for the pics!

Come say hi next Saturday, July 18th at the 28th annual TD Art Gallery Paint-In in warm and sunny Victoria, BC. Between 11am and 4pm I'll be demonstrating that thing that I do (whatever that is!) along with more than 160 other painters, sculptors, illustrators and visual artists of all stripes. 

Last year's Paint-In, located up and down nearly 2km of beautiful Moss Street from Fort St to the Dallas Road waterfront, was my first - and a great success. More than 35,000 people attended and had the chance to check out my original art, prints, books, comics and more - and once again I'll have free colouring pages for the young set. I'm also pleased to announce that for the first time I can accept credit card payments, in case you run out of cash!

In addition to the artists, there's a large selection of food available, the Art Gallery of Great Victoria is holding it's annual open house, the Moss Street Market will be on that morning, and there will be tons of other activities from a beer garden for the adults to a bouncy castle for the kids. For the bargain hunters among you there will be dozens of yard sales that happen along the street at the same time as well. 
The weather looks to be sunny and warm, certainly much nicer than last year's breezy event, so put on the sunscreen and I'll see you at my spot between George St and Clover Ave - a couple blocks up from Dallas Road.

Just in time for the incredibly hot and dry weather we're experiencing in western Canada, the new 2015 Fire Safety issue of McDonald's Fun Times children's magazine is now available for free at thousands of McDonald's restaurants across North America. It's filled with fun quizzes and puzzles that help teach fire safety... oh, and it's illustrated by yours truly, too! Be safe out there. Only available during July - so pick your's up today!
