Ripple part 2
For those of you who are not aware, there is a great project going on right now at the "Ripple blog" by Kelly Light. Basically, artists are creating art cards and you can buy them for $10 each, with all proceeds going to help out with the gulf oil spill. The two non profits they are supporting are The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies and The International Bird Rescue Research Center. There has already been $4,000 raised in just a month or two!
Of course I wanted to help out and this seemed like the perfect idea, tons of people pulling together for an awesome cause and doing it in a cool way. So I did 3 pieces and intended to write about them here, but before I could they already sold! Marsha the hippo is one of them. Anyway, you can check them all out here, as well as all the others and I encourage you to buy one or two, a great way to help out with the oil spill and get some original art along with it.
