Second Star to the Right...


A few months ago I posted an image of a little girl named Ava Jaymes Cipriani who was fighting Neuroblastoma. She recently passed away on April 17th, 2007. On her webpage are some pictures of her and her family. For some reason her trip to the aquarium (and her fascination with a stingray) and a picture of a flock of gulls that appeared as her parents put her ashes in the sea, stood out to me.

I decided to make a quick drawing based on those two things. I used the actual flock photo and added some more gulls. I also gave her hair. I'm guessing that's the first thing she brought back.

I can't imagine what her parents are going through. They amassed a large debt due to hospital bills, you can help them out by buying this t-shirt here: http://www.70star7.com/product.php?II=183

I truly don't know what to say, I'm just sad.
