Anonymous said:Hey, What's your name? I ended up on this tumblr through Pinterest, but can't find your actual name. I'm a designer at Simon & Schuster, and I'm always on the look out for new artists to hire. I'd love to add you to the list!
Hey there Anon, and anyone else with questions, here’s the answer to the one you asked and one you didn’t:
A week ago, our good friend Sean was riding his bike home when he was attacked. He was surrounded by 5 men who brutally assaulted and robbed him. He later wound up in the hospital for his injuries. Sadly, the cowards even took his bike — the form of transportation he uses the most.
Rachael Barbash is having a photography sale, with 100% of the proceeds going to Sean’s new bike. The photographs start at only $15! It’s extremely close to Sean’s birthday, and we’re hoping to surprise him with this gift. He doesn’t deserve the rotten luck he has — nor the violence that happened to him. If you’d like to buy Rachael’s beautiful photography or even just donate, please follow this link here. And please spread this — I’ve seen Tumblr do some damn fine things, and Sean is an amazing man that my spouse and I have relied on for years (especially in LGBT support). He’s one of the best people we know, and a bike is a small price for the awesomeness he does in this world.
Even Ben Folds can’t help being impressed by Sean and taking his picture.
