Help My Son Get to L.A. for an Illustrators' Conference

Help My Son Get to L.A. for an Illustrators' Conference

From Téa Silvestre Godfrey

I'm raising money to help my son get to a work-related conference in L.A. this August. He's already invested nearly $800 & HOURS of work on his portfolio. Just needs a boost.

Much gratitude and love to all the friends and family who contributed. Sean (aka Leyton) has what he needs to get to his conference. ART RULES!

More Info

If you believe in the power of art, please take a moment to consider to helping...

And if you've ever bet on yourself by putting all your money, work and sweat into something only to have it look like you couldn't cross the finish line, you'll understand what's happening here.

Sean (aka Leyton Parker) has planned this trip (to a work-related conference) for months. He's invested nearly $800 in registration and private consult fees, and put in hours and hours on his portfolio. (You can see much of his art here and here.)

But because a few clients haven't yet paid their invoices (money he counted on to get him there), he's unable to cover the cost of the plane ticket from Portland to L.A., or his housing and food while he's attending.

If he can't go, he'll lose out on all that he's already invested. (The ticket is only partially refundable.)

As a recent college grad, he's had a hard time finding regular work. He was hoping that attending this event might get him closer to realizing his dream as children's book illustrator.

The kid SO needs a break here.

Any little bit would help tremendously. Even $5. If you can help him out, you'll be contributing not just money but a statement that you believe in his talents and ability to succeed with his art. Thank you!
