I did three posts already with artwork for Japan. And there is a lot more. I will do a final post this weekend with work I found in my mailbox.
In this post a download to a screensaver, nicely made. Good cause. Download and donate here.
The screensaver is made by BooneOakley & Studiobanks.

The idea with a seismograph is not new. We saw it already here. And in this video from Deutschland Hilft (Germany is helping)

What amazes me is the enormous amount of artwork made after the Japan disaster. I love it and good to see that so many people do care about the people in Japan.
But where was that same inspiration after the eartquake in Haiti or the 2004 tsunami.
Do we have a selective inspiration?

I`m more than sure, that some part of this ideas came to the creators just after the Haiti earthquake, but there were no chances to realise it as too much time have passed and there were no actuality in it. And now there still is!

Is this eating disorder ad too sexy?

It’s a serious question. This woman has the typical idealized body of a model, and despite the scary body painting, the portrayal is undeniably drawing attention to her curves and bare skin. When I think about eating disorders, I try to imagine looking in the mirror and seeing a funhouse…
