Collaborators’ Q&A: Poet Hugh Martin: The piece of artwork is a small, yet beautiful and important reminder that we need to keep Japan in our thoughts. Artist Yuko Adachi: I wanted to create an image that is positive, gentle and healing for Japanese people and to those who purchase this print… The suffering that Japan is experiencing aches my heart to the point of numbness but I want to thank you for your support and love that you are sending to Japan. We feel it!
