Supporting Adam "Mojo" Lebowitz

Legendary CG industry pioneer, and our friend, Adam "Mojo" Lebowitz, one of the incredible artists behind the breakthrough visuals for shows like Babylon 5, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and Serenity, has been in the hospital and unable to do what he loves best.  Currently he has been doing some work to restore FX from the original Battlestar Galactica, and Babylon 5.  If anyone could help out, it would be really cool and awesome.
