Muralist Vasco Del Rey designs a joy-sparking t-shirt to help local children

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (KABC) -- ABC7 partnered with Smile South Central to identify muralists willing to donate their time and talent for our 29th annual Spark of Love Toy Drive.

Inspired by his childhood, artist Vasco Del Rey created a design featuring a large figure with a small flower, signifying many things, such as the impact the little things can have on a person.

"One of the first things that I was exposed to was the generosity of Americans," said Del Rey. "It made me less scared and more happy being in a new country."

Del Rey says being a part of this campaign is one way he can pay if forward and is hoping his design has a positive effect for other children, especially children of color, those in need or perhaps undocumented kids.
