ripple





















It's almost Friday again and I haven't participated in Illustration Friday for many months, but was totally inspired by last Friday's theme/project. It only took me until Thursday to actually do it! :)

Kelly Light decided to start a blog called Ripple as a vehicle for donating money to either The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies or The International Bird Rescue Research Centre to help the animal victims of the Deep Water Horizon Gulf Oil Spill. Each 2.5" x 3.5" sketchcard costs $10, all donations going directly to the organization of your choice. So far she has raised over $3000! Please check it out and spread the word!

Drop in the Bucket (#556) is my donation, done using mixed drawing media on archival black Stonehenge paper.

Wonderful contribution - it has a kind of African rhythm to it. Love it!

Love the Islander feel of this, the repetitive "ripple effect," which is perfect for this important cause.

Thanks, all. I was pleased to see that it sold almost immediately and Cathy Reeve, if you're listening, I'll pop it in the post tomorrow!
