Last week (Sept. 21, 2014 – Sept., 27, 2014) was a big one for addressing Climate Change –

Sept., 21, 2014: Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets to draw attention to the greatest threat facing life on earth. It was the biggest climate march in history.

Sept., 23, 2014: Hundreds of leaders and activists participated in the UN Climate Summit at New York to address climate change.

Sept., 25, 2014: President Obama created the largest marine reserve on the planet.

Sept., 22, 2014: Amidst all these encouraging signs of bringing attention to Climate Change, I submitted a design for Patagonia’s Vote the Environment campaign that is being run in conjunction with:
Creative Action Network (a great organization that uses art to highlight and raise funds to support social and environmental justice issues) and
The Canary Project (which, uses art and media to deepen public understanding of the impacts of climate change)

It is available for sale through the C.A.N. website By buying my poster, you will be supporting a great cause.

Simply put, the “Vote the Environment” campaign encourages voting as an empowering action that we can all take to secure the health of our planet and future generations by supporting “candidates who will push hard for clean, renewable energy, restore clean water and air” and “act on behalf of the future and the planet.”

I feel honored to be part of a brand that has always been close to my heart and at the forefront of corporate and environmental responsibility. Patagonia has been making sustainably sourced products that will actually last through years of whatever you put them through. Believe me! My Patagonia fleece (made out of post consumer recycled plastic soda bottles) is still going strong after more than ten years of constant use.

30% of profits from sales will go towards supporting the project, 30% to HeadCount, a non-partisan organization that uses the power of music to register voters and promote participation in democracy, and 40% to the artist.

So, buy a poster, spread the word, and, on Tuesday, November 4, 2014, take the planet into the voting booth!

Some of you have asked me, if I ever sell any of the stuff that I have made. So, I have finally opened a store on Etsy, LunaSpace. Currently, there is only ONE design up for sale, as a limited edition single color screen print for 30.00 USD (+ shipping) per print.  The design is available in two color combinations, with 55 prints available in each combination: Black Ink on White Paper (Domtar Cougar Natural) , and, White Ink on Brown Paper (Speckletone Kraft by French Paper Company). The poster measures 16″ x 20″ and fits into a standard size frame. The paper is 100 lb cover weight, archival, acid-free paper, with some recycled content, and Made in the USA. The inks are also Made in the USA, water-based and non-toxic. Each print is hand-numbered and signed by me.

The print, which, is available on Etsy, is an updated version of a smaller illustration that I had done as a cover plate for the Punchatantra (Penguin, 1998). The book has been out of print for a while now.

I revised the original design to include details that would have cluttered my original paperback page size image, but, will enhance this poster-sized version. I hope you will take the time to stop by my store for additional information, and may be even buy one. And, yes, I will add additional prints, or other paper goods for sale over the next few months. Please let me know if you would like to see any specific design available for purchase, or need any more information. Thanks!
