Anyway. I'm sure most of you have made contributions to help Japan in the wake of their disaster, and are probably sick of hearing about it, but I beg a few moments of your time as I pimp out a friend of mine by the name of Joe Johnson.
This is his latest work. Isn't it awesome? It has a real John Berkey vibe to it. I like it so much that I've asked for a print of it. As you can see, my friend is immensely talented and if there was any justice in this world he would be immediately hired by a publishing company to paint the covers of science-fiction paperback anthologies. But I digress...
John has a friend who has set up a not-for-profit organization which is selling t-shirts and other assorted swag items. 100% of all profits will be donated to the Red Cross and other disaster relief organizations. This is awesome for a number of reasons:
- Because the money goes to the Red Cross, it will help whomever needs it. Countries other than Japan were hurt in the quake, so if they need it more, they get it.
- You get a shirt to clothe your body and put off laundry for another day.
- Joe designed this logo for the effort and it's now on a bunch of shirts, mugs, bags, etc. If his stuff sells, that's something he can put on his resume to help him find gainful employment.
Thanks for reading.
