Anthony has chose the Natural Resources Defense Council as his artwork's charity. The NRDC works to safeguard the earth: its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends. Since 1970, the organization has combined the power of more than two million members and online activists with the expertise of some 500 scientists, lawyers, and policy advocates across the globe to ensure the rights of all people to the air, the water, and the wild. $250 dollars from the sale of each of Anthony's three print editions will be donated to the organization.

Polar Bear - VULNERABLE

The loss of sea ice habitat from climate change is the biggest threat to the survival of Polar Bears. However, conflicts with humans, overharvesting and industrial impacts are also key factors in their population decline - pushing this animal to the brink of being endangered.


Golden Toad: EXTINCT

Sport fishing, bycatching, and hunting have been key factors in contributing to the population decline of the Great White Shark. However, as greenhouse gases cause global temperatures to rise, sharks are swimming in oceans that are warmer and more acidic. This is forcing the slow evolving animal to adapt to a new environment and move to different areas in search of food.


Great White Shark: VULNERABLE

Global warming, infectious disease and airborne pollution were key factors in contributing to the extinction of the Golden Toad. This species was among the first casualties of the decreasing frog population from climate change. Formerly abundant, it was last seen in 1989 and is commonly considered the “poster child” for the amphibian decline crisis.

Tatsushi Eto | July 12, 2016 | SnF

Tatsushi Eto is a designer, illustrator, and creative director based in Kawasaki, Japan. It's hard to say what appeals most to me about Tatsushi's style. His negative space is never banal (rarely actually empty at all) although it still works to balance the rest of his image & gives room to breathe. His drawings (check out his site and his instagram to see more of his work) all possess the clarity of the most successful designs, but none move into the arena of sterility that often accompany that achievement. But really, and what you'll see here today, is that his choice of subject is maybe what's most attractive to me. This scene, to me, is perfect. It's a person doing what a person does - explores, innovates to explore further - in tandem with the natural world. An image of solitude, but also unity; an image of peace, but also excitement.



Michael Ward | June 1, 2016 | SnF

Michael Ward joins Tiny Showcase with an edition of "Used Cars." The original painting was developed from a photograph by the artist taken in 1975 depicting a used car lot in Long Beach, CA. Three decades later, when this scene was long gone (and replaced by a storage facility) it became a painting. And in the painting, the heat and the culture of that time are enhanced and preserved. When you look, do you know, almost immediately, that it's of a previous era of American culture? Or do you think the same scene could be recreated today?

For those of you in Laguna Beach OR Ashbury Park, you can catch Michael's work at the California Arts Festival and Palette Gallery respectively. For more details, check out Michael's blog.
