hello all!

i’m honored to be on the advisory board
for the amazing We Need Diverse Books team.
they just started an indiegogo campaign to raise
$100k for the great initiatives they plan to
implement in the near future, including the Walter
Dean Meyers award and grant program, the WNDB kidlit
festival in 2016, and working with various organizations
to bring diverse books directly into the classrooms.

please consider contributing to this great cause!
even five dollars, the money you’d spend on a frapp,
would help!

i’ve offered an original brush painting as an incentive
for a $400 donation.

















“Nestled Chick” is bordered in light green
chinese matting (mounted in the traditional
chinese style) and measures 22 1/4W x 17 3/4H.
Not shown is the calligraphy for “Spring Color”
(in chinese) and a red chop bearing my chinese name.

an example of the light green bordering (it resembles
brocade but too fine to see in this photo) is used
for matting in this bird painting below.


please check out WNDB fundraiser page and consider
supporting through a donation OR sharing the love on
social media. thank you!!
