Collage cards for special friends Posted on May 29, 2011 collage_card2collage_card1 My good friend Cheryl who owns Elephant Shoes Artisan shop, decided to have a girls arts and craft night at her shop one night and invited her creative friends to come over for drinks, food and art. I decided to upcycle Veer catalogs to make unique cards to give to my special friends. The second card has already been given to someone as a birthday card. Who shall I give the other one to? Category: Collage Project, Upcycled Art|Post Comment Help Japan desktop wallpaper Posted on April 1, 2011 April-2011-HelpJapan-nocal-1024x768 The Japan earthquake poster no. 2 is available on Smashing Magazine for their April desktop wallpaper contest. I chose this design because I felt it fit the composition of a desktop well and it was the most flexible image for all the various sizes. I wanted to provide this image as a desktop to have as a reminder that the recovery efforts continue even though the news stops reporting it. And at least for the month of April people, who download the image, will remember to keep hope for the people of Japan.

An earthquake measuring a magnitude of 8.9 triggered a tsunami that destroyed the north eastern coast of Japan. Almost immediately many artists began reaching out with their works of art in support of the relief efforts in Japan. As well the online community was quick to connect all of us to these works of art and help create a community that cared. Thus, the idea for “To Japan with Love” was born. A place for artists who share a genuine connection to Japan and this cause, to collectively fund raise for the people of Japan. Category: Help Japan Posters|Post Comment Japan earthquake poster no.3 Posted on March 21, 2011 Japan_2011_poster_Fukushima50_web Being Japanese Canadian and watching the devastation in Japan on television is heart breaking. I can only imagine how my friends and family living in Japan must feel. I admittedly avoided seeing images of the aftermath for at least a day or two, worried that I would start to cry. Instead I donated money and hoped that the reports I was hearing were exaggerated. Once I saw the scale of the destruction and finally saw images and video of what was happening in Japan, my heart started hurting. On the one hand I was happy to know my family was safe, however, on the other hand I knew this would be the start of even harder times for Japan, especially regarding their recent economic struggles. I could not just sit by and pray or hope, I needed to find a way to raise more funds. This poster is the third and final in the Japan earthquake poster series. The first poster represented the compassion needed for the Japanese people after the earthquake. The second poster reflected the calm and grace of the Japanese people during this tragedy. And the third poster pays homage to the Fukushima 50 that volunteered their lives to stay behind to control the nuclear reactor. Each hexagonal shape in the Japanese pattern represents one of the Fukushima men. The crane flying up out of the nuclear meltdown represents honour, loyalty and longevity. Honour and loyalty, which was evident by the courage of the volunteers, and longevity as a wish for their safe return and health. Read Less
