His work has appeared in many publications and he has held numerous shows in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, and India and can be found in many corporate collections as well as a large number of private collections.

This is the goal of Steve McDonald's Fantastic Cities: A Coloring Book of Amazing Places Real and Imagined. As you're planning your next trip, take a break from the stress of booking flights and settle down with Fantastic Cities as you imagine your next adventure. One of my personal favorites."
