Aidan by AbigailLarson Aidan by AbigailLarson
Aidan is five, and his two most favoritest things to do are to dress up as monsters, and draw them. In September this year he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, and he will have to go through extensive treatments for the next few years. His family was getting ready to sell their house to pay for the hospital bills, when Aidan's aunt had the idea to sell prints of Aidan's cute monster drawings on Etsy [link] to raise money for Aidan.

After reading their blog [link] and learning more about Aidan, I was completely touched by his charisma and energy and strength. He's an unusual kid, and that makes him really marvelous.

So, I had to do something - this is my little tribute to Aidan. I'm still spreading the word, but pitch in if you have $12.00 for one of Aidan's pictures (follow the link above)!
This illustration will be available in my DA Print Shop as well, and all the proceeds of this print will go to Aidan's family.
Or, if you'd rather just donate money immediately, donate directly to Aidan here: [link]
