So here's something completely out of the blue.
Today, I received an email from VIDA.
VIDA is a global partnership of creators,(Artists, photographers and more) pairing designers from around the world with makers in Pakistan in accordance with high ethical standards, to create original, beautiful apparel.
VIDA uses part of proceeds from the sales of the products, to create literacy programs for the makers, so that they have opportunities to learn reading, writing & basic math that they'd not otherwise have.
I was ask if I was interested in providing a few of my paintings/drawings as designs for some of their products/apparel.
I am now going through my paintings/drawings to see which one's I think might make beautiful scarves or other apparel. Have a look at http://www.shopvida.com/collections/voices/erica-schmidt to see which one I have chosen. I will add more in the near future. Please pre-order my designs & VIDA will make them and post them too you.
