Ema art for Japan

Get a Jim Bradshaw original and help a great cause!
Christina Conway invited various artists to do ema art for Japan. 100% of the proceeds go to Give2Asia Earthquake & Tsunami 2011 Fund.

Ema are traditional small Japanese wooden tablets with an image on one side, and a wish or a prayer on the other. To help Japan relief efforts, spread awareness, support and hope, artists are creating ema with their own positive heartfelt imagery for auction to benefit Artists Help Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund at Give2Asia.

Taking inspiration from these simple, traditional and specifically Japanese gestures of wish-making/prayers this auction allows everyone of any culture, religious background and dynamics a similar talisman, using the "if you will it, it will be" thought belief. A small work of art for a big cause.

Bidding is open for 6 days on ebay. My art at ebay.

Man this would look good on a Christmas tree!

Do you have any interest in making Christmas tree ornaments depicting life through the eyes of reindeer tripping on aminita muscaria mushrooms? I'd totally buy that.

:D :D :D

I have a hunch you won't be teaching about those mushrooms in you herb class. Just a small hunch.
