    Moonwalk Through Art


    Many fans will remember Michael Jackson as the "King Of Pop".  The Guinness World Record book remembers Michael Jackson as the King of Charity. They have listed the music legend under Most Charities Supported By A Pop Star. For many fans who are artist (music, dance, poetry, and media arts), Michael Jackson was an inspiration. Michael loved books, Michael loved art, and Michael loved charity. Michael once said: "I love the celebration of music, dance and art. I just love it." So, I couldn't think of a better way to honor his memory.  A book of art, to benefit a Children's Hospice.


    So, when I was asked to take part in this world wide project to ensure his message will live forever, it was a honor. This book contains the work of over 100 artist, from around the world. Drawings, paintings, cartoons, digital art and poems admirers, artists and fans have made and dedicated to Michael Jackson, a man who inspired so many people all over the world to make a real difference.


    This is a charity project, to benefit Mappa Mondo, a children’s hospice from the Red Cross in the Netherlands. Mappa Mondo is a house for children who suffer severe chronic diseases. The vision of Mappa Mondo is that children have the right to a safe environment, a home where they can play, learn, laugh and cry. Every child is unique and needs warmth, support, physical safety and homeliness


    The project became a reality thanks to the efforts of Anne Peters, an artist from Eindhoven (The Netherlands), born in 1982. She is a photographer and digital painter, please visit her website for more information: www.conquista-online.com
