Jim Earp is a dear friend of mine. We recently collaborated on a project that is near and dear to my heart. A More Perfect Union will be a public access website that will clearly explain (in completely non-partisan fashion) the United States Constitution. Jim is on the last leg of his Kickstarter program, attempting to raise the necessary funds to make this happen. I hope that you can contribute.
My involvement? Jim hired me to design the site’s cartoon characters and paint some of the site’s backdrops and backgrounds. If you’d just like to see more of my art, that should reason be enough to contribute (I hope). Here’s Jim’s posting on my Facebook page (I updated the deadline to keep this post current):

“A MESSAGE FROM WILLIAM JENNINGS BRUIN :
Well folks, we have just until midnight, tonight to raise a little less than $18,000.00 for “A More Perfect Union.” We’ve been honored with a bunch of generous, giant-hearted donors already, and to them especially, our deepest thanks. But if all my friends and all my friends’ friends (those who can afford it only and if you can’t, don’t even think of sweating it), would throw in one measly tax-deductible buck, we could make it. Look at it this way: We can civilly, honestly, accurately enlighten the average citizen this way, or go ahead and let them be indoctrinated the the Koch Brothers/Fox News way. I don’t see much middle ground. Wouldn’t it be worth a tax-deductible buck or five to make a decent effort to slow the rot? As the great Lewis Lapham has asked on more than one occasion, “What possible use could the current crop of elected leaders have for an informed electorate?” Let’s show ’em.”
