Ron was commissioned to create an illustration for the new community ID sign for the historic town of Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, in collaboration with designer Steve Slipp.
Ron created an acrylic painting that provided the basis for the vector art that Steve used to complete the design. Some colours were changed for the sign which was manufactured with vinyl adhered to metal.

To help celebrate AVRL #BookClub150 we visited the beautiful new Berwick and District Library for a special Earth Day reading of FRANKENSTINK! Garbage Gone Bad.
Ron read FRANKENSTINK! …
… and Sandra gave a show & tell about upcycling thrift store cashmere sweaters to make a “Little Stinker” plushie.
We were joined by Andrea Gibson-Garrett from Valley Waste Resource Management who talked about all of the fun crafts that can be made from recyclable materials.
You can make a cool T-Rex skull from a milk jug!
Andrea brought copies of a FRANKENSTINK! drawing for everyone to colour and decorate with “garbage”.
Here are some of the completed creations… the results were FRANKENTASTIC!
Special thanks to Barbara Lipp and Lynn Mullen for hosting our fun visit to the Berwick and District library!
