The Working Proof

The Working Proof is a great website which promotes art and social responsibility. Each print is paired with a charity of the artist's choice and 15% of the sale of each print is donated. So not only does the site showcase emerging artists, it also promotes a variety of charities.

This week the feature artist is Amy Ruppel - remember I showed you her cute fox and bear?

The print edition is called "This Land Is Your Land". It was inspired both by American Forests' work, and by the beautiful pine trees that Amy is lucky enough to be surrounded by in Portland, Oregon. 15% of each print sold will be donated to American Forests. American Forests' mission is to grow a healthier world with trees by working with communities on local efforts that restore and maintain forest ecosystems.
