We were devastated to hear the news of the fire that ripped through the apartment of Tara, Sean and their young family in Brooklyn, NY. Relieved to find that they were in Mexico at the time, and that their bunny Jupiter was saved by a brave neighbour. Our hearts are broken for them, but things can be replaced and rebuilt, we are just glad no body was hurt. 

This is what Sean and Tara wrote on the Cotton Candy Machine blog:
"Unfortunately it is true. Our apartment is toast.  
Tara, Ronan and myself are safe, we were out of the country when the fire happened. Our downstairs neighbor Anton saved Jupiter our bunny too. It was a 4 alarm fire that spread from the building next door. It completely burned our adjacent wall and the roof. We found out from a text message while we were relaxing in Mexico. More news slowing came in almost real time. "They just smashed out your windows" we heard next. The first time I Googled the fire I got multiple links to blogs and news stations with photos and video. It was surreal to say the least.  We lost a lot and now we are rebuilding from a fire. 

The word spread quickly about our apartment and the amount of love and friendship that surrounded our family was amazing. Thank you all for being so kind and generous. Everyone who was displaced by the fire is safe and that is the most important thing."
So right now I know you are asking yourself, "What can i do to help?"... And here is the answer. Cotton Candy Machine will be releasing 2 new prints to help recoup some of the loss. Both of these prints will be Timed Releases and available now, until the 15th of the month (Feb). These are the first timed release prints Tara has produced and the size of the run will be determined by how many prints are purchased between now and the15th.
