Controversial events occur everyday. A good friend of mine organized a benefit show for the events that took place at North Dakota Pine Line in 2016 where water access was threatened in favor of Manufacturing for businesses.
I was on the side of the native settlers who this benefit was going towards, to make an art piece straight from the soul. Something organic that people can communicate to. An to add, I donated 100% of the profits toward the cause.
I had never done this before at an art show. But due to the severity of the event over-ruling my own appreciation to being compensated for talent, I wanted to give everything that I could offer.
It sold at the event, which a huge success for me and the cause.
