Optimistic beginnings gave way to a reality check, I havent lost hope, this was just a failed campaign and an interesting look into human nature for me.
I began this campaign with the intent of finding something I thought existed in NYC, artists creating art for the sake of art.

Nevertheless, after giving three of my inspirations to three musicians, and having one thrown back in my face, I decided to let someone who was deserving actually have the next three… I left them outside. When leaving the butterfly people outside in NYC they disappear quickly, and I may never know who owns them, but surely fate is more capable of deciding who would be appreciative than I could ever be.
