We just found out today that fire tore through Tara McPherson's apartment on Jan. 22, when Tara and her family were out of town in Mexico. A downstairs neighbor saved their pet rabbit Jupiter as well, so everyone's alright, but the four-alarm fire in Brooklyn devastated Tara's building after starting in an adjacent building. According to a post on the Cotton Candy Machine blog, Tara lost a lot that was in her apartment, but she's rebuilding and has gotten a lot of requests for help.
As a result, Tara's set up a way for you to help out. She has two Giclee prints — The Love Space Gives Is As Deep As The Oceans (US$100), and Bunny In The Moon (US$25) — that you can purchase as a timed release from now until Feb. 15. However, they're an open run; the number of prints made is determined by the number of pre-orders before Feb. 15. Prints will ship at the end of March and your money will go toward helping Tara and Cotton Candy Machine recoup from the loss. There's no limit on the number you can order, either.
