David Mack is at it again, and he gave us permission to do a limited print run of his painting of Death with a cat!
This can stand alone or be part of the endless portrait collection.
Printed here in Hollywood, California on beautiful pearlescent stock
sized at 8.5" x 11" to match the others in the series, limited at a run of 2000.
Presale price will be $25 for the next week and we are offering another $5 off if you use the code: DEATHANDCAT
After that, the price will go up to $35 like the others.
For now, they are being offered unsigned. I'll try to get David to sign some when they come in, I'm aware he's always on the move.
The cause we will back on this one will be IFAW who is doing important work with the partnerson the ground in Ukraine for shelter animals.
(International Fund for Animal Welfare)
Here's what they are doing to help:
IFAW’s Disaster Response team is currently working with partners to respond to the devastation in Ukraine. We’re rushing aid to local animal shelters in Ukraine:
- Shelter Pif, is located in Donetsk in eastern Ukraine. Evacuation is not an option for shelter staff and the over 800 dogs in their care.
- The Holivka Shelter, located in Gorlovka in eastern Ukraine. Staff are not allowed to cook hot food for their dogs because the fire could draw unnecessary attention to the shelter. They desperately need to buy dry food for the 300 dogs in their care.
.Ukraine Aid FAQ
Q: What about the people? Why are we helping the animals?
A: The immediate needs during times of conflict are always focused on the safety of the people involved. However, we know from our rescue work around the world that animals are often the forgotten victims of conflict and war. Many animal shelters, sanctuaries and individual guardians refuse to evacuate because they do not want to leave their animals - placing them all in danger. It is our job to focus on the animals in times like this because we know that by helping the animals, we are also helping people.
Q: Can you get the animals out of the country?
A: Many families with pets are trying to evacuate the country. We hope that neighboring countries will allow pets to remain with their family during this crisis. Our shelter partners would require additional, extensive permissions to transport shelter dogs into another country and there are many risks of travelling with so many lives at stake.
Q: Can you get food and veterinary supplies into the country?
A: In many Ukraine cities there are still veterinary supplies and animal food available for purchase. IFAW is fulfilling specific requests for these items by wiring funds so that local organizations can buy items themselves. If a non-Ukraine based organization has animal food or veterinary supplies for animals in Ukraine, we recommend that they work through collaborative efforts to verify the items are needed and where they are needed. Many local organizations have posted wish lists citing a request for the supplies to be delivered when possible or asking for financial donations so that they can purchase the supplies themselves.
