I interrupt your normally-scheduled CoAnQuMo to share with you an important event happening RIGHT NOW!
First, this video will explain some of it:
Now that you’ve witnessed my one-take-wonder video of artistic-insanity, I’ll give you the event lowdown.
My friend Phil has cancer. He has non-Hodgkins lymphoma to be exact. He was diagnosed this summer, started a chemotherapy regimen, had emergency abdominal surgery, and has just one more chemo treatment left, which is going to pulverize any last little tumor-ite hanging out in Phil’s system. All together now: Pow! Zap! Bling! I can see a clear scan coming up, can’t you?
Cancer is expensive. Even when you have insurance. So I’m giving Phil 25% of all proceeds from this November art sale. One-fourth goes to my “brother from another mother” (and father).
So what *is* a virtual art sale exactly?
Well, I’ve opened an online store at Miiduu.com and from here I can upload images of original art and art products for you to buy online. If you’re in the Seattle area and want to pick up your items (no shipping costs for you!), you can choose that option, and if you’re far away (or don’t want to drive in the Seattle rain), I will ship your art items to you! How’s that for options!
Last month, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I did this same sale for my friend Corbin, and was able to raise $250 for her (and also donated $175 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation). Woohoo!
So here I am again, this time for Phil — a compassionate human being, a talented photographer, a loving husband and father, a great storyteller with a fantastic sense of humor, and one of the most ruminative, thought-full, and reflective people I know.
