The Big Picture
Boys Sees Hearts is garnering media attention, including a significant part in a 2011 episode of Extreme Home Makeover. This art has changed many lives... including Eric's. "My priorities have changed," he says. "Now I'm so focused on this and how much joy it gives to others. Other superficial things have fallen away."
Eric's hearts are also going to a good cause. He expanded Boy Sees Hearts into World Sees Hearts. It's a mosaic print of heart images that benefits It Gets Better project, the anti-bullying campaign that provides hope for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and other oppressed youth. He says, "If an oil spill can change the world, so can a puddle of melted ice cream."
