The Working Proof: Susan Schwake and a Fundraiser for Japan

Like us, you've probably been following the coverage of the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan on Friday. Also like us, perhaps you are looking for ways to help with the relief efforts.

We have partnered with Susan Schwake to bring you this week's print edition, Birds in the Bush. We will donate 100% of each print sold to Doctors Without Borders, who are currently in Japan assessing the post-quake needs, setting up mobile clinics, and focusing on vulnerable populations, such as the elderly, children, and victims suffering from chronic illnesses. You can read more about Doctors Without Borders' efforts here, and I'm sure that the website will be updated as they conclude their assessment of the post-quake needs. Birds in the Bush is an open edition that will only be available through March 31st, so pick up your print now and help us support Doctors Without Borders!

Birds in the Bush is about the promise of spring. No matter how bleak the winter, spring always comes to comfort us - heralded in with the songs of birds. Originally a gelatin monotype made with mixed media in ink and pastel, this is a digital print on acid free, Neenah uncoated matte 100lb cover paper that is 80% recycled. Huge thanks to Susan Schwake for enabling us to bring you this special edition.
