Wapiti Music Festival is more than just music. Don’t ya know. I’ll be debuting my new story for the 2017 WonderWalk at Wapiti. It’s not necessarily a headliner, it’s Tokyo Police Club, but The Traveller will be on the grounds in Annex Park just waiting to be read while you mosey around waiting for the next band to play. You might even enjoy it!

Last year Wapiti launch it’s first Art Expo, a display of about 20 original paintings, and they’re doing it again this year! I am participating in the Art Expo, as well as another Wonder Walk (last year I did Shy Girl) called The Traveller. Next I’ll be on stage painting live. Kidding. I kid. Ew.
Art Expo 2016 was widely praised and appreciated and that’s awesome. I’m looking forward to seeing all the new work in Annex Park!

Scenic Route To Alaska is on the lineup for Wapiti Music Festival. Let’s discover their music together! I prefer to know a band or at least recognize a band when I see them play live. Getting excited!
Well, hello, everyone! It’s been a while since I actually typed words out, rather than my usual post a picture/poster and continue on with my day. Exciting times have arrived! My little project called Shy Girl is being used as the guinea pig for WonderWalk at Wapiti Music Festival this weekend. WonderWalk was created by Sandra Boer as a way to promote local talent in a fun and engaging way. This time we have taken part of my story, Shy Girl – Tacki’s Cure (book one), and placed thirty pages of the story throughout the festival grounds. You can meander through the story and even go to my shy girl website to see more illustrations and learn more about the story. Shy Girl is a children’s book, a work in progress, for over a year and it’s still a very special project for me. I’m nervous and excited to let people into my Shy Girl world. I hope you enjoy it and even let me know if you did or did not enjoy the WonderWalk and Shy Girl experience. There’s even a survey you can quickly take this weekend, since I know every loves a good survey, so we can work towards creating another WonderWalk or perhaps rework the whole idea to make it better.
