I decided to make some fanart for the Angry Birds community in order to boost awareness of the disaster response efforts and the widespread damage caused by the hurricane. Many of my AB fansite are from Europe and Asia but we have lost contact with a significant number of our community due to the power outages and damage to infrastructure on the US East Coast.
