After Hurricane Sandy devastated communities along the East Coast, I wanted to do a small edition that might help raise money for people. It seemed like a way to offer a reminder that we have a responsibility to help each other after the immediate dangers have passed. Sandy will require long-term rebuilding and mutual support for both families and the infrastructure of our own city. As I worked in the studio with reminders and notes, I realized I was thinking about a song my friend Chris Evjy wrote years ago. With his permission, the lyrics became the subject of the drawing. I think about it often, particularly when things are the hardest.
A portion of the proceeds from A Song will benefit the non-profit Occupy Sandy Recovery.
