Kenichi Hoshine for Jason Noble

Kenichi Hoshine just sent me this:

“I recently read about how Jason Noble was diagnosed with cancer and is receiving treatment. Jason is a musician and has been involved in bands such as Rodan, Shipping News and Rachel’s and is a pivotal figure in the Louisville, KY music scene. I don’t know him personally, but his work has greatly influenced me in the past. I wanted to auction off one of my original paintings on ebay with 100% of the proceeds going to Jason and his medical costs.”

    Wow, I can barely believe this. Jason used to date my babysitter and I laminated a drawing he did for me, which depicted a shark fighting a T-rex. Seeing this piece for sale has really given me hope.
