Hamptons for Haiti

I recently shipped off some signed books and the spec art I did for Hope for Haiti.

The piece was done as a visual hint at what the book would become, when my agent, Rubin Pfeffer, took the manuscript to market. And now the painting is going to be auctioned off with other works to benefit Haiti.If you are in the area, go support it and have a blast!

A special treat from NY, via Ayiti

Please listen to this beautiful music by Wynn Walent, which is available for free download or purchase at the bottom of this post. Wynn is working in Haiti at St. Damien's Hospital, doing such crucial work to help the lives of Haitians. I met him while waiting for Bryn to get back from the morgue where he and his crew pick up unclaimed bodies and bury them with a real funeral. I was walking around the compound of St. Damien's and Wynn came up and asked if he could help me. I told him I was waiting for Bryn and he let me cruise around with him until Bryn got back. I really enjoyed hanging out with Wynn while I was in PaP and now hearing these tunes is a treat that I had to share with you.

Here is Wynn at work. Bringing boxes of rice to folks in a tent camp near Tabarre.

Go buy this album and all proceeds go to his Haitian friends who need help. Talk about cutting out the middle man. I cannot think of a better way to spend a small chunk of cash, than on these lovely tunes, and in support of this hard working guy.

And, as always, my friends, please help me pass the word about all the beautiful souls who's work shines like the sun at St. Damien's Hospital in Haiti. 

Thank you.
