It is wonderful to think that artists, who are sometimes referred to as “starving”, are willing to come together to help an artist in need. Artists Helping Artists: Jacob Drake is hopefully the first in a series of benefit events in which local crafters and artisans are doing just that–coming together to help another artist.
Jacob Drake (http:www.myspace.com/jacobdrake) is an animator from Eastlake, Ohio who created “Old School Revolution,” an animation that received over 100,000 views on ifilm.com. Jacob was born with muscular dystrophy and relies on his computer not only for his art but also for other aspects of his life. Jacob’s computer was recently damaged and is unable to be repaired. This benefit is to raise funds to assist Jacob in replacing his computer so he can get back to his art.
