Hey Dereck,

Of course that's all totally cool and happy that sole usage and any profits thereof to go to JDRF.

I know I missed the step in attaching the hi-res version in the group. Let me know how I can now send that on to you.

Hi Dereck,
Let me know if you are going to print that image for the Pre-Existing show and I will send you a 300dpi version. Also, I might just correct a little funny colour cast that is on the right hand side of it :-).
Can you tell me what is the story with rights too.
Thanks man!
