Shannon Stirnweis: "I wanted to be an artist when I grew up."
Each time I think I've seen it all, learned all the important names, discovered everything there is to discover about mid-20th century illustration, up pops another remarkable talent that was completely unknown to me. In this case I found a striking visual ...

Story
Introduction
I'm an illustrator, cartoonist and graphic art educator
Education
  • Sheridan College
    Illustration, 1981 - 1985
This morning our furnace began clicking and by noon it was making a grinding noise. I searched Google for furnace repairs and found Prologic Comfort Solutions with a five star rating, read the other reviews and decided to give them a call. Keith answered, I described our situation and the type of furnace we have (an older model, which another company had told us you can't get parts for anymore). Keith knew what the problem was, came over asap, fixed everything (which turned out to be a messy job) and gave us a great price for the work - a fraction of what the other company had previously charged us for parts it turned out we didn't need. Keith was courteous, knowledgeable, and professional - he restored my faith in HVAC repair people. He didn't just try to sell me a new furnace as has happened before with "those other guys." I highly recommend Keith and Prologic Comfort Solutions - the five star rating is well deserved!
