Be the Change You Want to See in the World

An amazing fellow illustrator friend, Kelly Light, was tired of feeling helpless and hopeless in the midst of the Deep Water Horizon Gulf Oil Spill disaster.  So rather than sit idly by shaking her head and saying "what a shame" she has organized a fantastic fundraiser to raise money for The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies, and the International Bird Rescue Research Center.

Illustrators from far and wide are donating sketch cards to Ripple (If we all do small acts together - we can cause a ripple - and it can grow).   With each $10 donated to help the animal victims of the Deep Water Horizon Gulf Oil Spill, the illustrator will mail out a signed copy of your chosen card.    Not only are you helping DO something, you're also getting some outstanding artwork in the process!

Above are the cards that my children and I have submitted.
