the happiness passport: MELMASTIA

The Happiness Passport: Melmastia
this character is a personal favorite from the happiness passport; the word is MELMASTIA (pashto): "hospitality and profound respect to all visitors regardless of race, religion or economic status, without hope of anything in return." when i was doing my visual research about the pashtun people of afghanistan and pakistan, i noticed a flair for beautiful, muted color combinations and artfully casual drapery in their style of dress.

"winter" print, fundraiser for LA's homeless shelters

Winter print
i just added this print to my shop, and will use 100% of the proceeds from its sale to purchase much-needed items (personal hygiene products, baby items, etc.) for two los angeles organizations via their respective amazon wishlists:

downtown women's center is ending women's homelessness in greater los angeles through housing, wellness, and advocacy." /// LA family housing (LAFH) "helps people transition out of homelessness and poverty by providing a continuum of housing enriched with supportive services. since 1983, LAFH has become one of the largest comprehensive real estate developers and homeless service providers in los angeles and a regional leader providing solutions to end homelessness."
