"Shiromuku", shown below along with my inspiration board, is an original 11x14" illustration of a traditional Japanese bride. The illustration was created to help those affected by the March 2011 Japanese earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear crisis. Shiromuku was donated to Taro Arai, owner of Mikuni, for auction during the March 2011 HELP JAPAN Fundraiser. The event was incredibly successful, raising over $85,000 for the cause.
Recently released for purchase via The Illustrated Bride's Etsy Shop are 20 limited edition fine art prints of "Shiromuku". All proceeds from the sale of these prints will be donated to The Humanitarian Aid Fund to provide assistance in disaster relief wherever in the world it is needed most urgently.
