The Working Proof: Patrick Hruby - The West Wind

The West Wind is a new print by Patrick Hruby that was inspired by a story his mom read to him when he was a child about the four winds talking to one another. Patrick always daydreamed about what each of the winds might look like and what they would say, and this print illustrates what he imagined the West Wind to look like. 15% of each print sold will be donated to Doctors Without Borders, an organization that Patrick feels represents what it really means to be human in the best sense of the word - that we put our love for our fellow human being above our allegiance to a country.

Also, The West Wind is featured in Readymade's December/January issue, on stands now, in their Shop to It feature! Hope you can check it out!
