Hurricane Katrina had a huge impact on a great many people...the entire United States really...I'm not interested in political argument or commentary anywhere near this deviation. This is an emotional thing for me..I really don't give a rats back legs about whose fault what was and when at this point. I have only just found out that a friend's neighborhood at least only had minimal impact making it likely that she and her family are all right, although we still haven't managed to contact her...

I used my favorite little emotiguy in this piece and his friend...to hopefully create some kind of impact...I also used over 40 scrolls with names of cities and towns that were in the path of Katrina...I searched for as many as I could find...I'm sure I missed a lot, but I don't think I could have fit any more as it ended up. Some can't be seen..but they are there.

Please respect my wishes and do not bring hate messages about my president or anyone else in the U.S. whom you despise or find fault with to my deviation. =)

EDIT: Someone brought the fact that Hurricane Katrina has its own category to my attention so I've moved this piece into that section.

EDIT 2: This print is now available and all proceeds from purchases are going to the Salvation Army, an organization that helped my children and myself out of a crisis situation and allowed us to stand on our feet again.

Being as my brother lives in New Orleans, this means a lot to me (and am now mad at DA cause I didn't get this in my inbox)

Yeah saw the date on it... probably during the time that I wasn't on and ended up dumping over 1000 inbox items.

:hug: I wanted to do much, much more...and my plan to use proceeds from the print fell apart because nobody bought one lol...but at least I tried. :shrug: I hope things get put back together soon... =( (And of course I got gulfport on there...and you wouldn't believe how many towns I got into the piece that aren't visible...They're everywhere behind the figures...I wanted them in whether they fit into the view or not. =)

It's the thought that counts :aww: Sorry nobody bought your print but it still means a lot that people are trying to help. It's getting better but the people still feel a little jaded down there. I'll be down there this week; I bet it looks the same as a month ago when I was there. :heart:
