This card is available for a $10 donation.This week's theme for Illustration Friday is "Ripple". Kelly Light suggested the theme and participants are donating art cards (a 2.5"x3.5" work of art) that will be sold for $10 to help aid the clean up of the Gulf Oil Spill. This is an excerpt from the Ripple Sketch 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 benefitting 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."
The card I created is inspired by some of the reefs that can be seen in the Gulf of Mexico. I am not lucky enough to live near the ocean. (I hope to someday) However, I have been to several ocean beaches and a few years ago snorkeled in the Gulf of Mexico. It is sad to think that future generations may not be able to enjoy the beauty of these delicate ecosystems. Make sure you go over to the Ripple Sketches Blog and look at all the entries and consider making a small donation!
