Lucky


I have not been around lately and I have not been doing a whole lot of extracurricular art lately. I may not post for a while either. This is a design for "Griffin Day 5k" a day to support my family and my son. May 2oth 2009 he was diagnosed with Leukemia. The doctor told us we were lucky that it was Leukemia ALL because it has a 80-90% cure rate. Quote:"if your child is to get cancer, this is the one you want to get." We actually have been blessed by support from our family and community; we have been quite lucky in that regard.

If you want to learn more or support the Griffin Day 5k go here.

Design: My son with cells in an exploded out view to the left. Cancer cells (red circles) are intertwined with white blood cells (yellow circle for design sake) which then fade until there is no cancer cells. Purple is my sons favorite color, hence the purple shirt.

All the best, Josh... I'm sure your boy will be fully cured in no time at all. Hope to see you posting on a regular schedule again soon!
