We offer curb-side pick-up and shipping

by admin on March 16, 2020

We are following the government directive to close to walk-ins, but I am at the store working and filling orders. Barb and I are both healthy. Of course, we want everyone to be safe and healthy too.

If you have extra time on your hands, why not get busy with making art! We are happy to ship supplies and also offer curb-side pick-up: just give us a call and we can suggest ideas, or go through your order. Payment can happen on the phone or with e-transfer. Call 519-369-1283. I will also be posting a partial list of our supplies on the Art Supply page.

Thanks for your continued patronage.

All things comics!

March 8, 2019

You might not know it looking at me, but I grew up reading comics. I couldn’t resist the dramatic drawings of idealistic heroes jumping around saving people (and getting into trouble). It was like watching a movie, but at your own pace. You could imagine yourself in a big city at night, on top of […]
