Hooray! I got my copy of the “Expression of Hope”:http://www.expressionofhope.com book. What is “Expression of Hope”:http://www.expressionofhope.com? Good question. I took the liberty of lifting the description of it from the web site.
bq. Expression of Hope is a global program of goodwill and awareness featuring works of art by the community touched by the rare genetic conditions of lysosomal storage disorders. Selected artwork will be displayed at various events around the world where others in the community can view it. In addition, the majority of submissions will be posted on the web where they’ll be accessible to the broader community. The works of art are meant to express the subject’s feelings of hope and be an expression of the human spirit of the person living with an LSD.
About 6 months ago I was asked if I wanted to participate in the “Expression of Hope”:http://www.expressionofhope.com program. Naturally I said yes. I was assigned to collaborate with an artist from Boston. So I met “Sean Ackley”:http://www.seantackley.com/ through a conference call organized by Genzyme. We spoke for awhile and got each other’s contact information. We exchanged emails, chats in the days that followed. Sean and I were able to exchange ideas which he eventually used to develop the artwork he submitted. You can view the artwork “here”:http://www.expressionofhope.com/gallery/eoh_gallery_main.asp?featured=&submission_type=Collaborative%20Work it’s the photograph with the diary and pictures.
Sean took my words and wrote it in a diary. He then photographed the diary together with some pictures of mine. The result is the fantastic artwork he created. Ok, ok.. I’m a bit biased. But it’s honestly good, biases aside.
The “Expression of Hope”:http://www.expressionofhope.com is a great program that is trying to help create awareness for people with LSD but with a positive twist. It showcases the talents and the positive attitude of people suffering from LSDs. It’s a fantastic campaign and I hope that it does well.
The Fight Pompe illustration I also had May Ann commissioned is featured in the web site of “Expression of Hope”:http://www.expressionofhope.com. So please do check out the web site, you can send e-cards of the artworks from the web site.
Let me know what you think.
