The idea behind the Art of Compassion Project is to create awareness by opening people’s minds and hearts to animals through art. Every year we will support AT LEAST one different non-profit and donate 100% of the profits to them. This year (the first year of our project) we are fundraising for Veganuary. Every single artist involved in the project is either vegan or vegetarian.

About the upcoming book;
Earlier this year I approached various artists around the world with the idea of putting together an art book in aid of Veganuary. The result was inspiring and soon I had 80 artists on board. These artists are from all around the world: Africa, Europe, Australia, Zealandia, North and South America and Asia. A large part of the art you see available as perks in this crowdfunding (fundraising) campaign is a result of the work I received from these artists. Each artist with their own distinctive, yet common, goal are creating a better world for animals through their art. The upcoming book not only offers beautiful art but also a little about each artist’s journey.
