VERNE ANDRU

Verne Andru 

Verne grew up during the dawn of the television era with its wacky worlds of Beatlemania, Bugs Bunny and the Fabulous Furry Freak Bros.

While he dabbled in music and drawing, it wasn't until he met the crew from Captain Canuck Comics at a high school "career day" that he found his calling. He quickly became the studio pest, dropping by weekly to show off his latest. During this period he created the "Captain Cannabis" character and comic book, the first of many to come.

His career took off with his first paid job - cel painting on "Blowhard," a National Film Board animated short, followed by animation assignments for Hanna Barbera's Saturday morning line-up. He continued in comics illustrating stories for Phantacea, doing ink and colour on Captain Canuck, cover art for Charleton and inking for Marvel.

Working on Nelvana's "Rock & Rule" animated feature Verne bridged old with new - on the one hand he was privileged to work alongside masters Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnson, two of Walt Disney's 9 wise men, while at the same time he was designing leading-edge computer-controlled visual effects with Industrial Light and Magic.

Verne then turned his focus to advertising and marketing in Toronto and Vancouver. He provided the creative behind a number of high-tech success stories including 'Simply Accounting,' one of the best selling small business accounting brands, and the successful Pigtronix musical instrument effects. As CEO of Virtual Access he produced a range of content for web and broadcast, including the highly successful "Kid's Club" TV spots for Swedish furniture retailer, IKEA.

Today Verne is focusing his advanced skills on the release of his Captain Cannabis comic book and film series that are destined to become his Ultimate Hit!

FOOD TRUCKS FEATURED AT THE SHOW!

The following food trucks will be featured at the show:

Reel Mac and Cheese, Wings Outdoor Grill, Mom's Grilled Cheese & Twisted Potato!

 ----------
REEL MAC AND CHEESE:

REEL Mac and cheese offers gourmet, made fresh on the truck macaroni and cheese with seven cheeses, and a variety of movie themed menu items.

While macaroni and cheese itself is slightly retro they have given it a modern twist with menu offerings such as Slumdog Millionaire that includes curry paste and peas and The Green Mile that is topped with freshly cooked broccoli florets and crispy onions.

They serve up inspired comfort food made from scratch right on the truck. They start with real butter, add whole milk, select spices and seven different cheeses, the result is creamy deliciousness.

All yummy, all the time!

WINGS OUTDOOR GRILL:

Wings Restaurants & Pubs is a local staple for good times and even better food. Now, they're winging in that same quality food to the outdoors, in their Wings Outdoor Grill food truck.

Although the menu features a wide variety of all American classics, the fresh never frozen wings are where it's at. And they are by no means average. Wings Outdoor Grill offers up over 20 impressive homemade sauces and rubs to smother their wings in, from sweet Thai and Canadian maple bourbon to savory Tokyo teriyaki and outback BBQ.

All created with locally sourced ingredients whenever possible.
