Dave Cooper aka Hector Mumbly

Popular artist and now author, Dave Cooper (aka Hector Mumbly) appeared today, 9 December 2007, at a friendly and courteous bookstore that I am proud to say I am a regular customer.

Cooper, er... Hector Mumbly appeared for a book signing at Collected Works Bookstore and Coffeebar. He graciously took a couple of minutes for a quick photo outside the store. Cooper, if you have not heard of him before, is a talented Ottawa artist who hit it big time south of the border with a gallery showing in L.A.

He related to me that he always wanted to be a children's author ever since he was kid. I bought a copy for my own son. However, one day I'll have to explain why he inscribed the book to "John" instead of Matthew...

You can see more of Dave Cooper's work on his website and on Flickr
