Protect Pangolins!!

Another curious looking animal, with a sweet face, and scales and a long tongue is being threatened with extinction.  The Pangolin is a type of anteater that is being poached for its scales (medicinal qualities, they say: its just keratin, the same material that rhino horns and your fingernails are made of) and they are getting eaten to extinction. (the Chinese make a soup that is made of pangolin fetuses).

Why, oh why????  If ground keratin makes a man more virile, why don’t these men just rip their own fingernails out and use that??

My fellow artists at Glashaus (studio collective), Rondi Vasquez and Monica Hui and I decided to collaborate together on a letterpress print to help support Pangolin Advocacy.  Rondi is a letterpress artist, Monica is a mixed media artist who also loves animals.  We have created an edition of 50 letterpress prints and all are signed and numbered.  The unframed prints are $30 and ALL proceeds will go to wildlife and specifically to a pangolin preservation organization.  You can purchase these at this link.
