My friend suffered for years with Colitis & finally (thankfully) had her colon removed. Unfortunately, the emergency room visits & hospital stays left them deep in medical debt. So I organized a benefit & we raised enough money to wipe out their debt.
Posters were hand pulled screen prints. Limited run of 20, signed & numbered.
  • My friend Liza, suffered for years with debilitating Colitis, when the doctors told her they needed to remove her colon it was a huge relief. After 3 surgeries she is healthy and Colitis free, but the surgeries and hospital stays left the Dickersons thousands of dollars in debt. I decided to get our friends together and throw a benefit show for them. We had 5 bands play for free, for a night of music and art. Through door and art sales we raised enough to wipe out their hospital debt!

    I designed and hand screened this poster for the event. I wanted a clever, non-gross, way to convey why we were having a benefit show. The semi-colon just worked out perfectly.

    All pieces are numbered and signed, limited edition of 25. Printed on multi-colored Strathmore, 12x18.
