‘You Will Be Found’ — prints helping Papyrus UK & The Trussell Trust
The response to the illustrations in the newly-published You Will Be Found has been unexpected and overwhelming. When I was working on this for five months last summer, I could never have foreseen how resonant they were going to be at the time of the book’s release.
I mean — no-one saw this coming, did they?
The book-of-the-song’s themes of mutual support, reaching out, rallying around and looking after the vulnerable, worried and isolated among us have taken on a context that wasn’t in our minds when Sasha, Farrin, Benj, Justin and I were working on it.
I’d planned to make selected prints from the book quite early on, but I’ve brought the idea forward, and am donating half of all profits from those sold to Papyrus, an organisation I’ve been working with for the last year that works to prevent suicide in young people — the event at the heart of Dear Evan Hansen, from which the song is taken.
The new prints go live at 6pm, Friday 20th March.
And for the foreseeable future, half the profits from all of my other prints are going to The Trussell Trust, the UK’s national food bank network.
Now more than ever, we need to believe we’re all going to be OK, and we will be, if we look after each other.
