#TwitterArtExhibit #LosAngeles A Postcard For A Cause!

Yesterday when on Twitter I came across a tweet about an upcoming art exhibit in Los Angeles, CA called the Twitter Art Exhibit!
I was intrigued and so off I went on a visit to the Twitter Art Exhibit website to find out more, and how to enter!  
What I found was a gathering of some amazing postcard art that has been submitted from artists around the world to be sold at the Exhale Unlimited Gallery in a show that kicks off with a reception on Jan. 12, 2013.
The show will raise money, with the sale of each donated postcard, for an organization dedicated to the training and support of youth in L.A.'s Rampart District, an at-risk group who without outside help would not have the opportunity to experience and obtain careers in the arts.  
I thought that the cause was great and the timing right so I gathered my mini postcard canvas and got to work.
Here's a peek at the creation of my Pop Art Mini postcard that I sent off today in hopes that it will make it in time to be shown...and hopefully sell...for this awesome cause!
