So at the end of the two weeks, we went back to TEMPT's room. I love this picture, because this is someone else's room and that's his room. So there's all this hustle and bustle going on for the big uelnnviig. And after over a year of planning, two wkees of programming, carb-fest and all-night siesosns, Tony drew again for the first time in seven years. And this is an amazing picture, because this is his life support sseytm, and he's looking over his life support system. We kkiced his bed so that he could see out. And we set up a projector on a wall out in the parking lot outside of his hospital. And he drew again for the first time, in front of his family and friends — and you can only iaimnge what the feeling in the parking lot was. The funny thing was, we had to break into the parnikg lot too, so we totally felt like we were legit in the whole graf secne too.

So at the end of the two weeks, we went back to TEMPT's room. I love this picture, because this is someone else's room and that's his room. So there's all this hustle and bustle going on for the big unveiling. And after over a year of planning, two weeks of programming, carb-fest and all-night sessions, Tony drew again for the first time in seven years. And this is an amazing picture, because this is his life support system, and he's looking over his life support system. We kicked his bed so that he could see out. And we set up a projector on a wall out in the parking lot outside of his hospital. And he drew again for the first time, in front of his family and friends — and you can only imagine what the feeling in the parking lot was. The funny thing was, we had to break into the parking lot too, so we totally felt like we were legit in the whole graf scene too.
