Lions and Tigers and (Monster) Beavers...Oh My!

Okay, lions and tigers won't really be at NOTSTOCK , but Dave DeVries will be painting a "Monster Beaver," and you can screen print an area child's drawing of a "beaver rebuilding Minot" onto a T-shirt or other apparel.

To explain, area elementary students were invited to draw a "Monster Beaver" or a "beaver rebuilding Minot." DeVries will select one of each of these drawings and transform the children's art into a drawing and painting. One child's "monster beaver" drawing will become a painting that will be executed directly at MSU and then sold at auction afterwards (a la his book, The Monster Engine). The sale will be donated to a deserving family who has been affected by the flood disaster. One child's drawing of a "beaver rebuilding Minot" will become a pen and ink drawing that can be screen printed onto shirts and apparel at the event for a freewill donation to also go to the deserving family.

Dave Devries will be working in the Student Center Beaver Dam all three days and will give presentations of his work, including his work for Marvel and DC Comics, on Thursday, Oct. 6 at 11 a.m. and Friday, Oct. 7 at 9 a.m. in Aleshire Theatre, Hartnett Hall.
