I’ve been aching for Japan recently. I spent a wonderful two weeks in Tokyo my junior year of college, an experience I consider to be among the most inspirational of my life so far. The country itself is breathtakingly gorgeous. To hear that this country that I’ve grown to love is suffering is just painful to me, even more so that I have several friends who have family in Japan.
I’ve been looking for a way to participate in the relief effort, and low and behold, my co-worker and fellow SCAD Grad Shiho Hoshino has been working her tail off to put together a wonderful project called “Hearts to Japan,” a way for artists to aid Japan through T-Shirt design. Check out the page over at Skreened.com. My co-workers and I, along with the help of other NYC SCAD alumni have contributed a few designs to the project. I myself did the panda sketch above (and yes, it is available in booth T-Shirt and Onsie).
I’d be so grateful if any of you would be willing to support this fantastic project that Shiho has put together. If you’re interested and would like to contribute a T-shirt design yourself, please let me know!
