Thanks to pals JJK & Mr. Warburton, I've been alerted to Kelly Light's lovely art-based response to the horrific oil infusion into the Gulf of Mexico, a continuing disaster that with further decimate my hometown of New Orleans.
She's created a continuing illustration sale called, appropriately, RIPPLE to raise $$$ for Gulf animal rescue organizations. Anyone can submit & the proceeds from their postcards or small drawings (usually 10 bucks) goes directly to animal rescue.
For July, Kelly is going to feature some more established book folk, raise the price to 50 bucks, and give the art away to the first person to email. You can see how it works here.
I've made 9 cards that will become available one at a time every 1/2 hour starting at 6:30 pm EST on Wed. JULY 7th.
You're first, you get the cash to Kelly, I send you the 6"x6" drawing to you, you've helped the gulf.
Please check out the site. There's lots of great stuff out there, cheap! And if you're a cartoonist or illustrator pal, please submit a few doodles.
Here are my submissions (in no particular order):
