As an artist I tend to feel pretty helpless when major issues/catastrophes happen on my blue planet, but for the first time I'm deciding to put myself out there and see if I can make some sort of difference. I know I'm not famous, and my artwork isn't sought after, however this is a good cause and any little bit helps.
The creator of SketchCrawl, Enrico Casarosa, has decided to make the 31st annual crawl a benefit to help Japan. He's asking that each artist raise at least $100 for the cause. This blogpost serves two purposes. The first is to raise money for the event, the second is to make any other artists that may see it aware of the sketchcrawl and invite them to come out and raise money as well. Not only is this a great cause, but you'll also be around a supportive community of well meaning, incredible artists for a full day.
So here's what you can do if you want to help my sponsorship for Japan. First off, you can donate money here GIVE2ASIA or you can write me a check or send me money by Saturday, which I will then give to Enrico at the end of SketchCrawl. One more thing, if you give a donation of $15 or more I will give you a print of your choosing, and I will even go further to say that if you donate $25 or more I will do a sketch for you. However, if you donate $50 or more, I will happily produce a personal color commission of your choosing. Those of you that know me should know that I never offer up private commissions, and I probably won't again for a long time after this event.
This is a great opportunity to show the support and love of the world around you. I really hope to see a lot of artists out and about next saturday, making an impact, and giving hope. Thanks for taking the time to read this to the end and thanks in advance for any donations you give Japan.
