*End of the East Japan Earthquake - Disaster Area Support Project
Zen Brush Art Book will stop being a paid app on March 10, 2014 (Monday). Starting on March 11 (Tuesday), we plan on continuing its distribution as a free app to allow even more people to see it.
We offer our deepest condolences to everyone who suffered as a consequence of the great east Japan earthquake and tsunami of March 11.
Following this disaster, PSOFT MOBILE started our project to support the affected area. We collected illustrations and words of support to the victims of the disaster, made by professionals and amateurs alike, using our "Zen Brush" iPhone/iPad app. This app is an art book compiling more than 100 art pieces kindly contributed by our users.
The goal of this project is not to profit our company, but rather to support the affected areas. We will regularly publish on our website the results of the support made possible by this project.
PSOFT MOBILE, creator of the apps “AR Missile”, “Zen Brush”, etc. is located in the city of Sendai. Despite this earthquake, bigger than anything we ever experienced, we were blessed by the fact that no one in our team suffered any injury. However, along with the extended interruption of the daily life infrastructure and the repeated discovery of damage due to the earthquake, we felt a strong feeling of anxiety and despair.
Amongst all of this, we became aware that many people were using Zen Brush to create artwork supporting the victims of the earthquake and tsunami and send it using Twitter. Words cannot express how much encouragement these works gave to us who are in the affected area.
In the difficult conditions following the earthquake, we asked ourselves what we could do to help the recovery efforts. We reached the conclusion that by collecting everyone’s works, your messages of support could reach more people, and at the same time, help the recovery by using the proceeds to support the affected areas. This is why we decided to start this project.
This app is one of the results of the above project. PSOFT MOBILE is back on its feet and we hope that releasing this app will provide a helping hand to the recovery efforts, and pray that the victims can recover as soon as possible.
We wish to express our deepest gratitude to the many Zen Brush users who endorsed this project and contributed their artwork.
We also feel the utmost gratitude and respect towards everyone who works for recovery in the devastated areas.
Finally, our heartfelt thanks go to everyone, in Japan and everywhere in the world, who prays and participates in support activities for the devastated areas.
