ripple project

Today I made two cards to contribute to the fantastic 'Ripple' project. Ripple was started by illustrator Kelly Light in an effort to help raise money for the animal rescue effort in the Gulf of Mexico. It has indeed rippled all across the globe - it's great to see artists from all nations contributing pieces to the project.

Please take some time to visit Kelly's Ripple blog HERE and view some of the wonderful art on offer - all available for a donation of JUST $10!!  Here is a little bit about the project:

"Each sketchcard on this blog is $10.00. The $10.00 is a donation to help the animal victims of the Deep Water Horizon Gulf Oil Spill. Every penny is donated. The two Non-Profits that are benefitting are The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies and The International Bird Rescue Research Center. You can purchase a card if you donate directly to one of the non-profits and email me the confirmation and your address"

What a fantastic idea and a fun way to contribute this rather solemn cause. Hopefully my cards will be up for sale soon :)

UPDATE: Both my cards have sold and will be on their way to the USA very soon - hooray! I hope to do some more over the next couple of weeks. Thanks for all your lovely comments everyone, you are too kind :)

These are sooo awesome. Great work!

I've been wanting to contribute to this awesome cause. I couldn't see if there was a certain size the art has to be. What size are yours?

Thanks girls, you are very kind :)
Kelly - there isn't a certain size but mine are 4" x 6", that way they are pretty standard and will fit into frames you can buy off the shelf :)

Hey Bee, these are wonderful! I'm pretty sure these will sell quick! I started on my last weekend still haven't finished it yet. I did a pen & ink illustrations but I might do something different to it.
