great minds think alike...

Most of the artwork I've done over the past few years has been for charity, in support of groups, causes, ideas &/or candidates in which I believe & whom I want to help. I am extraordinarily lucky to have the circumstance to allow me to do such~ a supportive base of family & friends as well as a job that I enjoy & affords me the financial freedom to pursue such philanthropic endeavors.
One of the earliest pieces I did in this regard was a donation to a benefit auction for a group of concerned citizens in Princeton, NJ, who were opposed to the inhumane & unnecessary culling of deer in the town. It seems these horrible creatures had the audacity to eat the flowers in some residents' gardens. Never mind the fact that I'm pretty sure the deer had lived there far before these houses were built & the flowers were planted.
The piece is fairly self-explanatory & I think it still holds up rather well.
A group of some pretty great folk espousing some pretty great ideas.

All the arguments to prove man's superiority cannot shatter this hard fact: in suffering the animals are our equals.
