July 12 and 13, 2008, John took Best Of Show at the 10th annual Tahoe Arts Festival, a chalk drawing event during which the artists have two days to complete a large drawing on the pavement at the Tahoe Biltmore which is right on the California-Nevada border, near Crystal Bay.

In May, John was commissioned for yet another mural for the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. This time the Boardwalk asked Ton to make several shipping containers "disappear" - Ton applied a loose floral design onto these ugly metal boxes.
