Your home for everything artistic

Sitting my the living room with the television on, I’ve noticed some commercials for the Microsoft Surface lately showcasing a man who uses the system to draw police sketches in an effort to help to catch the bad guys. Anyway, this got me thinking.

ADVANCED FOR USE FOR MONDAY, JULY 21, 2014 AND THEREAFTER Dallas Police Detective Dan Town stands in front of some of his composites he has drawn recently to help solve crimes in Dallas, Texas on Tuesday, July 1, 2014 at Dallas Police Department Headquarters. The craft of sitting down with a witness to a crime, listening to the witness' description of the culprit, and producing an accurate sketch that can help lead to an arrest is a dying one.

Sure, as artistic people we like to think our work contributes to the world in some way or another. And, in general, I do believe it does. That being said, some artists specifically work in concrete ways to promote the greater good of the world and I commend them.

Do you yourself do this or know anyone who does?
