Hello Nakatomi Peoples-
Like the entire world, we were all shocked and horrified at the senseless tragedy at Uvalde’s Robb Elementary here in our home state of Texas. We all wanted to help, and what we do is art and prints. So when artist Lyndon Willoughby and Ken Hashimoto of Spoke Art approached us to donate printing services for this fundraiser print, we immediately agreed.
“Wildflowers of Texas” is an 18×24 lithograph, designed by Texas-based artist, Lyndon Willoughby. Printed on 100lb cover stock in an edition of 200 hand-numbered prints. Prints retail for $40 each. 100% of the sales will be donated directly to Everytown For Gun Safety.
From the artist-
Like many, my wife and I watched the events unfolding in Uvalde TX last week in horror. For me personally, this latest in a long string of mass-violence hit differently than in the past for a few different reasons, not least of which is that I have become a father in the last year. Texas is my home state and I love it here, but I cannot turn a blind eye to the wildly irresponsible actions taken by our state government in regards to gun ownership and carry laws. I was convicted to do something to try and help that was more tangible than words, and so I created ‘Wildflowers of Texas’, a 100% for-charity print run in collaboration with Nakatomi Inc., also a Texas-based operation. The print features the iconic Lone Star of Texas surrounded by a bouquet of 21 Texas wildflowers, paying homage to the 21 lives cut far too short last week. All proceeds from this piece will go to benefit Everytown for Gun Safety, which is doing excellent work in trying to move the needle on gun violence in this country and advocating for common-sense gun control legislation.
Prints are available HERE. This is a pre-order, prints will ship in 2 weeks.
