The printing of this gorgeous book has successfully been funded via Kickstarter, and you can go ahead and reserve yours now! It is truly a unique book, and we all hope that it can bring comfort and inspiration to those who see it. All preorders go to charity to aid ongoing relief efforts in Japan post-tsunami.
Check here later for a review — I’m waiting until I’ve got the physical copy in my hands to soak it all in, since books have the most impact on me as I read. I’m somewhat of a bibliophile…
Right now, a lot of people are still coming together to help Japan. I’m very glad. Watching people unite and get through the tragedy has been inspiring. It easily could have been soul-crushingly sad, but people want to keep hope and push through to succeed and keep moving, and they should. I admire them.
The above piece is something I created to sell in order to raise more money for Japan tsunami relief. It is currently on sale here at Etsy. Funds from the sale of this piece will go to the Tennessee Tomodachi Fund, founded by the Japan-America Society of Tennessee in response to the recent events. I’m spreading the word because I just want to do as much as I can, when help is needed most. I’ve felt particularly powerless lately, but that shouldn’t stop me or anyone else.
(I’m also selling another piece right now, the funds from which may or may not go to a similar charity, but will go to a charity.)
As for the other related art projects I’ve had my eye on…
Art for Japan‘s first batch of artwork just went up auction! It has a lot of wonderful submissions, the sale of which will benefit AmeriCares Japan relief.
Aftershock will be releasing a charity book soon! My above artwork will appear in it in a slightly altered form
CFSL is going to print a charity book later this year.
Please, everyone, keep your hearts open, and send your power to the places that need it!
