I was contacted recently by a lovely woman named Jennifer Brea, who told me about the documentary she was making.  A documentary called Canary In A Coal Mine, which is all about ME.  She was getting ready to launch a Kickstarter to fund the project, and asked if I would be willing to donate printing rights as part of the rewards offered.  Of course I said yes 🙂

The campaign only began four days ago, and they are already almost to their base goal of $50,000.  In FOUR DAYS!  Clearly there are a lot of other people who want to see this documentary being made just as much as I do!  If they surpass their initial goal, it will only make the film better and better, so please do consider donating to their very, very worthy cause.  And you can get prints of mine as part of your reward for doing your good deed!

The series of prints in an special run on pearl paper, which gives them all a delicate, magical sheen.  I’d been toying with the idea of pearl paper for some time, and this seemed like the perfect setting to break them out, to make the reward prints even better!

Please visit the Canary In A Coal Mine page, spread the word, and donate whatever is possible for you!  I am really proud to be able to help this project in whatever way I can… it’s going to do so much good for so many who are suffering.  Check out their very moving preview below, and thank you to everyone who has or will contribute to it!
