I was asked by Whitney Sherman to submit a piece of art to a benefit that two of her aspiring students are putting together. The benefit is called Vend Send Mend
. All proceeds from the sale of the donated art will go to the ongoing disaster relief in Japan. The general theme is vending machines, as these are quite a popular thing in Japan, though of course they didn't want to just see a bunch of illustrations of vending machines.
I would like to thank Yuko
for helping me out with the Japanese characters, which here mean HOPE. I love using the Japanese symbols and it's important to get it right. Thanks again Yuko.
