Thanks to Bart Gazzola, one of my favorite art critic’s in Niagara for a nice write up on the “Canadian Myths & Legends” show. You can check it out here.
Big thanks to everyone who came out Friday! It was a very special evening for Paula, Declan and I, and we really appreciate. The show will continue to run till Nov 28. I hope everyone is enjoying “Benny the whale goes to Niagara Falls”, and can’t wait to hear what people think! Thanks to my friend Eva from Philosophy Studios too, who took most of these great pics! I hope this show ill be the first of many, and look forward to painting more great tales and characters of Niagara’s history!
Today I picked up my “Benny the whale goes to Niagara Falls” books from PBI, they did an excellent job. It was really exciting to see Declan write his name inside the first book.
Super excited to see my Benny the Whale book finally hit the press yesterday! I have been working on this book on and off for the last year and a half, and can’t wait for it to be finally out there… #bennythewhale
We went to see Smallfoot last night. Sony’s most recent blockbuster with some great character and environment designs. It was a nice little film, with a good message on the dangers of perception, and fearing the unfamiliar.
Well I think I’ve finally wrapped up my first children’s book, “Benny the whale goes to Niagara Falls” definitely alot of fun! I have to admit though I am looking forward to drawing some stuff that isn’t whales for a while! Here’s the last page I finished which is the Niagara-on-the-Lake page, where Benny’s dad enters the mouth of the Niagara River looking for him.
I’m very excited to be having an exhibition of my work at the Niagara Pumphouse Gallery for the month of November and wanted to share the poster. The opening will be the first Friday of November, Nov. 2 at 7, snacks and refreshments will be available and it should be a great night, really looking forward to it! Hope to see some of you there.
