This site is getting a lot of hits right now so visiting it may be iffy, but it was such a cool idea I had to share. Basically it is an AIDS charity, for $ 25 and a three-word description, artist Joe Alterio will create a 6" X 6" pice of original art. The above piece was inspired by Monster: melted, ice cream, angry; the result was the neaopoleviathan.
the site is http://www.robotsandmonsters.org/faq.html
He would like to expand the idea into other areas and causes as well. When I see ideas like this I always consider adapting it to other uses such as pro-life, missions, etc.
