Ripple Project and Illustration Friday: Paisley
The Ripple Project is the brainchild of illustrator Kelly Light, who decided to take action against her frustration with the Gulf oil spill by making small sketch paintings and selling them for $10 each to benefit two wildlife non-profits, The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies and The International Bird Rescue Research Center. Every penny is donated to help the animal victims of this disaster. Since the time she began this project on June 3rd, it has grown across the globe, with over 500 artists participating and raising over $3,000 so far. I'm very happy to do my part, however small, to make a difference in this horrible crisis.
Please take a minute to look at her Ripple blog HERE. There's still plenty of unsold art available for a $10 donation! I'm hoping that mine will find a happy home!
