    Benefiting St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters
    For 13 years Ros worked as a UPS delivery driver in Central Texas. During that time he often reflected upon a backpacking trip he took throughout Southern Africa. It was a trip that stirred his imagination, allowing him to view the world with a different perspective. A world where zebras lost their stripes, lions went sleepwalking, and cheetahs ran fast just for the kiss of it.
    While the majority of his paintings have dealt with African wildlife, Hill has no problem taking his skewed sense of humor elsewhere. "On Saturday He Created The Stars" launched him directly into the golf market.
    "I went out to my mailbox one day," says Hill, "and couldn't believe it when I saw my golf painting on the cover of a national art magazine. That exposure established relationships with galleries around the country."

    Artists, entertainers, athletes, politicians, and business celebrities put their artistic and creative skills to good use by doodling. Proceeds from Doodle for Hunger allow St. Francis Food Pantries & Shelters to give support to a network of charitable programs that provide a broad range of services for those in need, including the provision of food, clothing, shelter, and related social services for the poor. Special conditions of sale apply.
