Here are two atc's that I did for Ripple. I hope that you will stop by Ripple and either buy a card, or make a card, or both! Here is what it says on their blog:
"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 benefiting 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 to firstname.lastname@example.org. The artist will mail you the signed card.
We don't have to feel helpless. We can help. Our small actions together will ripple outward. "
The pelican has already sold!! So, thank you to the buyer; I'll have that in the mail today!
This is one that I've just sent in; as of this writing, it hasn't made it up on the site yet. I did the background first, sort of an abstract all colors running together sort of thing, because I was deciding what to draw still. Then I drew in the turtle, directly in ink (Micron, sepia). Then I added more watercolor. I like the way it turned out.
UPDATE: The Sea Turtle is now sold!
