The very kind, generous, and talented New York artist/teacher Seth Apter is working with Dan Eldon‘s online presence creating a tribute to Dan and the enormous creativity and expression he inspired with his life and journals. An avid traveler, aid missionary, artist/art journalist, and photojournalist, Dan died tragically — way, way too young — murdered in Somalia at age 22.
I was greatly moved by Dan and his work when I first started art journaling. My story, contributed to The Journey is the Inspiration, is here:
I highly recommend you read all of the other stories and take in their work, too. They’re profound and amazing. Just like Dan was.
