No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

22. SOLD

Nancy Lennet sent in these two cards this evening. She spent the week working away on them. Thru computer glitches and art supply failures- she stayed the course 'cause she wanted to help.

Nancy was a NYC based animator who worked on commercials & preschool television before escaping to the wilds of Connecticut.

Ripple takes shape!


Suzanne Del Rizzo is an aspiring Children's book illustrator from Ontario Canada. "It breaks my heart watching the coverage on TV of the poor animals affected by the oil spill. I'm so glad to have come across your blog to be able to make a small contribution."

Footprints in the sand


Sharon Wagner is a Minneapolis based artist and freelance illustrator. She spends her days creating whimsical and colorful paintings. Most of her work is inspired by her love of animals. But her gouache pieces, "Black foot prints in the sand" reflect a darker theme. They represent our personal imprint and responsibility with the oil industry.

-'Nuff said.

The ripples go Far!- Dutch ripples!


I'm a Dutch illustrator. I mainly work for childrens' books, magazines and television.
Most of the time I work with acrylic paint and pencils. Sometimes I use a bit of Photoshop.

Every day I read the latest news about the oil spill in the Dutch newspapers and on the internet.
Its so frustrating that the oil just keeps on flowing into to ocean.
I hope I can contribute a little bit by donating artwork.

Greets, Tineke.

-I thought Tienke's words were just right. I said it before- I'll say it again- The oceans divide us AND unite us. (it's a small world after all!;))

Hugs to Tienke! You can see Tienke's work HERE

They are confused - Why can't they fly?


Rebecca Gavney Driscoll lives in Wisconsin. She paints in watercolor and her choice subjects are animals of all kinds. --Becky really really loves animals. I know her work and that love shows. Pelicans are the face of this disaster. Their wide spread wings heavy - their gaping beaks... It is almost too much to see. But we can do SOMETHING- no matter how small. A small sketch- a small donation. Please help.
