Dave taught art for thirty years in the Delta School District, during which time he developed
worksheets for cartooning. Since retiring from teaching in 2012, he has continued to create art. He developed a cartooning presentation he gave in schools and facilities in Delta.
Dave illustrated and wrote two books and did the artwork for five other books, three of which
have been published. Two involved his wife, writer Diane Reid Stevens, and another involved his friend, poet Rudi Krause.
The alphabet books are titled Weirdly Wonderful A to Z, Amazing Airborne A to Z, Eccentric
Earthlings A to Z, and can be found in the Vancouver Island Regional Library and the Fraser Valley Regional Library.
Dave’s two other books are The Red Door and Somewhere.
You can find Dave’s books on Amazon or through Dave’s website: davidtstevens.com

Pangaea Arts Stories on Wheels
STORIES on WHEELS is an original street theatre storytelling act for the whole family. Tales are brought to life by a high-energy comic performer, using beautifully illustrated picture cards displayed in a magnificent miniature wooden stage attached to the back of a unique bicycle. Inspired by a traditional Japanese travelling storytelling show popular from the 1920s through the 1950s called Kamishibai (literally paper theatre), the show combines the best of oral storytelling and narrative painting. Featuring gorgeous illustrations by local artists, as well as traditional picture cards from Japan, several short stories are told with music, dramatic action, and audience interaction. As well, the audience gets to hear an amusing and informative history of the art form. You’ve never been told a story this way, before!
