The profits of the book are going to a good friend in great and imminent need; to help her pick her life back up. That’s why the project is named The Path to Hope. All participating artists know about it and have agreed to help out from the kindness of their hearts.
Because it’s more of a personal matter, I did not disclose this detail to the public, nor was I comfortable with calling it a charity because that would give the wrong impression, although I actually have set aside a portion to be donated to a Cancer Society of her choice. To clarify, I am not keeping a cent.
This artbook was planned only a couple short months ago. At the time I didn’t know what I could do. I wracked my brain for answers and ultimately I found I couldn’t do anything on my own. So I reached out to my friends…who have all been really good to me…and they reached back so that I wouldn’t have to lose one.
