Almost a year and a half ago I was in Mali with @thegoodline to do some work for the Samake2012 campaign. Since then, a coup derailed elections and democracy in Mali, al Qaeda has established a stronghold in the north, and many refugees and even non-refugee Malians are battling extreme poverty and hunger. Still, Yeah Samake has been working tirelessly to share his message of education and political integrity to lead Mali to a promising future. Elections are back on for the 28th of this month. Yeah’s making the final sprint to the finish line now and @thegoodline is back out there to help in the push. Wishing them all the best of luck. If any of you feel inclined to help, even small donations at samake2013.com can make a big difference. Yeah is a man of his word and someone I believe can make a significant and meaningful difference for a country in need. It’s been a privilege to know and work with him. #samake2013 (at Mali)
My sis-in-law @jesicook is amazing. Check out her work at http://mouse-earz.tumblr.com. This painting here just has such amazing composition and layering and mood and details… I love it!
