HELP IF YOU CAN!
HERE is the charity shirt I worked on with Threadless. The tragic flooding here in Australia, and in Brazil, and Sri Lanka, saddened me terribly. Ross Zietz, my friend and art director at Threadless, and I realized that sometimes art can speak louder than words. We contacted Brazilian designer Matheus Lopes Castro and Australian designer Simon Massey Di Vallazza and began collaborating on a flood relief shirt design.
The resulting design is now available for purchase. $9 from the sale of each shirt will go toward flood relief.
Info taken from the Threadless page:
"On working across continents, Ross says he "was worried working on a collab with people in 3 very different time zones might have been a challenge but not with these guys. It was an easy organic process that came together nicely. Big props to each of the guys, and Matheus especially for his amazing linework and melding of everyone's styles.
Simon Massey Di Vallazza lives in Brisbane, an area hit especially hard by the Australian flooding. After seeing the damage firsthand, he's "so grateful to be involved in this great initiative with such talented designers that will not only help Australian flood victims but also those in Brazil and Sri Lanka's devastated regions. A huge thank you to Threadless for making this happen."
