  1. I just thought of the perfect guy for this job. Chris Allen (Inkproof) is an artist I have worked with in the past. Intensely professional and passionate about his craft. He’s a sought after artist both in Canada and the United States. This is a local talent who can bring far-reaching attention to this project which is in the best interest of the community!
