Print Aid NYC

I was asked to do a poster design for Print Aid NYC - a fundraising effort put together by artists committed to helping their neighbors & rebuilding their city. All proceeds go to the Mayor's Fund for Hurricane Relief, of which 100% of donations is dispersed to city relief efforts and organizations for food, water and hygiene supplies, as well as long-term relief and restoration efforts.

The theme for the posters is "light." I chose to handletter the poem Somebody Has To by Shel Silverstein with a brush & ink and had it whirl around the page among scratchy stars. It's a bit of an interpretation of light, but polishing stars with polishing jars and rags seemed to fit just right. 

You can see & purchase my poster here. ($30; limited edition of 50)
