Picture Book Project!

Chesch! (Hello!) I've just returned from my first Polish wedding which was pretty amazing...I've never consumed so much good Vodka and meat in my life. My Polish bro was getting married and I promised him I wouldn't miss it. Before I left for my big trip I managed to squeeze in a piece for a really cool charity called "The Picture Book Project." A designer at work filled me in about it and I couldn't pass up the oppurtunity to contribute to this wonderful Picture Book. Here's a little about who's behind it.

Rachel Tiep-Daniels and Margaret Wuller have spent time volunteering, teaching, and getting to know the children of Ghana and Tijuana. Rachel spent a month working with the Save Widows and Orphans Development Center (SWODC) in Ghana. Margaret volunteered with the Corazon de Vida Foundation, which supports 13 orphanages in Tijuana, Mexico. Both organizations help to provide, educate, and empower women, orphans and destitute children. Your support will feed, cloth, educate and provide a family to children who would otherwise be left to the streets.

So the artist was asked to submit two versions. A black and white version which children will be able to color and have fun with...and a colored version which we (bigger children) had a chance to color and have fun with =]

Thanks Rachel!

You know there is also a foundation I started up a while back called "instutute for children who want to read good". The children would appreciate your work on their wall Will. Think about it.

Anyways, nice work. The 1, 2, and 3 design is genius.
