Update #16

The Paul Madonna Reward

Comment

Paul Madonna, the incredible artist responsible for the All Over Coffee books and series in the San Francisco Chronicle, has offered to contribute a limited run of 5 high quality prints  of our favorite pieces. The prints are 16 x 20, which is fairly large. I'll include pictures with the update but if you want to see larger versions follow these links: All Over Coffee #500, #582, #359, #516, and #563.

The Paul Madonna award including all 5 prints is $1,000. You can also add $1,000 onto any other contribution and we'll include the prints.

We're also going to feature #582 in a scene in Happy Baby. Very excited about this. Art is so subjective but Madonna has been one of my favorite artists for a long time and his new work is just transcendent.

Also, this is great timing on Madonna's part as we only have 5 days left to go. We're at 60% of our goal!
