Jessica La Rock began drawing The Welcome in high school at the age of fifteen. She spent time in NYC selling The Welcome on sidewalks in Soho and Central Park. Selling artwork on sidewalks gives the fastest and honest feedback. The people would smile, laugh and be somewhat delightfully confused by The Welcome. 

The Welcome was created to remind everyone we are all equal, we all deserve love, we all deserve to laugh and we should all feel welcome on this place we call Earth. The Welcome are the colorful sprinkles on a pink donut.
