[Help Japan]…

I have always felt a kinship with Asia, Japan most specifically. Everything about the people and culture fascinates me and I deeply respect the rich history and traditions of Japan. I’m currently studying Japanese and I’m making plans to travel there in the next few years. So when I heard about the tragic earthquake & tsunami that rocked the nation last Friday, I was immediately heartbroken, sad, and devastated. Seeing the despair that was (and still is) being felt by the people there haunts my heart, yet I cannot seem to turn away from the terrible images that are being transmitted around the world.

Amongst all the anguish however, I do have heart knowing that people and organizations the world over are bending over backwards to do whatever they can to assist in the relief efforts. Of course, being an artist, I am always thrilled when the art community steps up and contributes something, so if you appreciate art and want to do something to help, consider purchasing the print above by design studio W+K. All the proceeds go to relief efforts. I’m going to try & buy this when I get paid…and I’ll be on the look out for other prints, posters, and other forms of art that are being made to aid Japan…after all, it’s the least I can do.
