When Supertyphoon Yolanda hit last November 8, 2013, I was stunned.  Along with the rest of the Philippines (and the world), I went through disbelief, helplessness, anger, grief and the nagging cry for hope amidst the despair.

The first two drawings are based on images I kept seeing online and on TV: the streets of Tacloban following the storm.   They were drawn in the spirit of rebuilding not just physical lives (sale proceeds will go to actual rebuilding efforts), but also to offer a hand of healing.  To borrow from the core vision of YolandaPH Good News, an informal support group I put up online:

There is good news in #YolandaPH, we have to believe that it is out there. Let’s rebound on each other for support and a generous dose of the indomitable Pinoy spirit.

Prices are suggested below, but please feel free to add a little more if so prompted.

*Proceeds will go to #RebuildPH initiatives of the Tao Kalahi Foundation, doing relief work in Northern Palawan (the Tao founders are personal friends and I can vouch for their work 100%.  Regular updates are posted on their facebook page), and Gawad Kalinga Typhoon Yolanda Operation: Walang Iwanan (GK has become a byword in my circle of friends, thanks to Mark Lawrence Cruz who is a dedicated GK worker and leader. I think GK is one of the best examples of effective, far-reaching and lasting developmental efforts in the country today).
