It was a fantastic evening of magic and music at the Ironworks Studios in Vancouver BC. Well over a hundred guests came and went as the evening progressed. Family and beautiful people from the animation industry, animation students, fans and more. And of course my wonderful family of biker friends, members of the Soberiders, showed up in force as well, filling the sidewalk with Harleys, and adding colour to an already extremely colourful crowd!
I want to thank all of you who came out and made the event so incredible, and especially those of you who waited patiently in line to actually buy a book from me. My expectations were FAR exceeded, as I sold almost 50 books! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I hope it lives up to your expectations, and gives you some magic back too! For those of you who missed the event or couldn't afford a copy, I'll be at the Comicon in Vancouver as well on May 24th! (See the poster below)
Here is some video footage from the event. I will have more, lots of professional quality video was shot, and I'll be editing together something shortly!
Me and Neil Ryan collaborate on a song I wrote especially for the book launch 'Elemental Magic'
Norm backs me up on the Djembe as I roll into some rousing blues toons!
Marc Watters joins me on the harmonica, as we tear up B.B. King's 'Rock Me Baby'
If you missed your chance, you can come and see me at the Vancouver Comicon on May 24th. I'll be signing books again, and I will also have fine prints of some of the books finer artwork. Hope to see you there!

Come one come all to the Elemental Magic Book Launch Par-tay! It promises to be an eventful and memorable evening. I will have plenty of books on hand, and for $50 you'll get a signed copy with your own unique illustration! There is a full (not free) bar, there will be fantastic FREE food, and some killer live music too! So come on down and hang out for a while. And if you can't buy a copy, don't let it stop you from coming! I just want to see your smiling face and thank you for being a friend and supporting this really cool new book that the animation world needs so badly!
