“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

My son, Dean Pickup, is a successful Canadian graphic artist who works in graphic design -- primarily in the book publishing industry. That's how he makes a living. His passion is visual arts. He just finished a pencil portrait of the Gord Downie, lead singer for the Canadian rock band, the Tragically Hip. As you may know, GordDownie is dying of brain cancer.  

Dean is auctioning his original sketch with 100% of proceeds will go to the Canadian Cancer Foundation for research to stop and cure this deadly killer. There will be prints available later, but the original goes to the highest bidder.

The portrait is below. Lyrics from Tragically Hip songs lightly interwoven throughout the drawing. Bids can be placed at Facebook page "Dean Pickup art" or link here 
Let's help this important cancer researcher fundraiser. Not only will the winner get a great piece of art, they will have helped fund brain cancer research. For an interview, contact Dean Pickup by email at dpictcom@telus.net
