Presenting the 2020 Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp

We are proud to present “Come Spring – Northern Pintail,” an original painting by DJ Cleland-Hura of Halfmoon Bay, British Columbia.

After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in fine art from the University of Michigan in 1993, DJ moved his studio to the West Coast. Here he designed fantasy artwork for “Magic the Gathering,” worked as an illustrator, created political cartoons, and won numerous wildlife stamp competitions that raised funds for habitat conservation. In 2003, the Cleland-Hura family migrated north again to Vancouver, BC.

DJ has taught numerous classes and workshops over the years and has been a featured instructor at Pixar Animation Studios, Vancouver Film School, and The Animation Workshop in Denmark. His concept work, as well as lighting and color design, has contributed to a number of film projects including “Finding Nemo”, “Ballerina”, and “Space Chimps”.
