A few weeks back Bobby posted some heartbreaking photographs of animals caught in the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Although the official governmental reaction has been disappointing, I have noticed a number of online charities and initiatives popping up that have been admirably designed to raise money to protect and restore the Gulf region.
Helping the cause, the people at Tiny Showcase have joined forces with artist Jen Corace to produce the above print (“Down, Down, Down”) to raise money for the Gulf Restoration Network. To my mind, it’s a win-win situation: each print sold raises $15 for the charity and buyers will have a beautiful print to hang on their walls and know that they’ve made a small difference. But do be quick: this unsigned edition will only be available until 18 June 2010.
