Help a brother out....
You know what sucks? Well, MEAN PEOPLE, that's for sure!
But - there must be a place in hell (or karmic hell) people who steal from others. Especially those who steal from people who can least afford to lose something.
So when I read today that my friend Josh up in Portland was burglarized,
and someone stole not only much of his artwork, but also - important things that he needs for his business (i.e.... business cards, stickers, shopping bags, dolly,) AND his PORTFOLIO - I thought - are you effin' kidding me?
For an artist, that akin to stealing their lifeline.
Josh is a great guy - as funny and talented and creative as the best people I know. Did I mention talented as hell? His Etsy store rocks, and his pop culture knowledge is second to none.
So I have a favor to ask... he set up a Go Fund Me page to recover some of his losses. (You can click on that link to read more!) I know that as an artist, he'll be discovering what he truly lost as time goes on... he'll be reaching for a tool, or a piece of work and realize that it was stolen, too.
Shit like that gets into your psyche and it's unnerving - that feeling of being violated.
So please - if you can spare $10 or $20, please consider donating something to his recovery. He doesn't know it yet, but I am going to contribute to his goal whatever doesn't get covered by the end of this day.
Thanks for helping a fellow artist - you just added a few karmic points to your account!
