Hastings Mural Project Loony-Toons?!

It is exciting to announce that a beautiful new book of Dave Stewart's cartoons from the Hastings Community Mural Project is now available. 

The 40 page book includes all of Dave's hilarious drawings that poke fun at the artists, the mural process and other Hastings' characters. The book also reproduces Dave's heartwarming speech at the mural dedication and a short essay by lead artist Dave Loewenstein. Click on the image below to preview the book and order copies.
