British Artists Auction for Japan

There is No Cavalry

Blog and details HERE

"I’m putting on an exhibition / auction of UK and Irish creative work to raise funds for victims of the tsunami.
Artists include: writers, photographers, designers and illustrators from the advertising industry who are kindly donating work to be auctioned/sold.
I have already received the first piece for the exhibition – a beautiful poem by Irish poet, Patrick Chapman.
I’ve had lots of very positive feedback, offers of help, and advice on how to put on an exhibition!
If anyone out there wants to donate some artwork, please drop me a line. It can either be something bespoke, related to the disaster, or something from your archives. Or, if you know someone else you think might want to help, send them this post.
The medium isn’t important either. It could be: a painting, illustration, photograph, poem, prose, haiku, graphic design etc.
What it must be: is something that you think someone else might want to put on their wall.
The main goal for this is to raise money for the people of Japan." -David Milligan-Croft

The Japan Art Auction. Thursday 7th April. Studio Manchester. Buy a ticket please.

Tonight!- Otis Frampton draws live for Japan

Otis Frampton is a truly talented guy. He draws commissioned cartoon masterpieces live on UStream.
I have watched many times think "How does he do that?" - He's working his magic for good tonight.

He will draw tonight @ 6 PM CST - Here's some links and a blurb from his blog:

"This Sunday I will be having a 6 hour Tsunami relief artcast starting at 6:00PM CST and going until midnight. I will be donating the money I made from the "Godzilla Vs King Ghidorah" commission as well as the money I make from that night's 7-7-Sunday commissions to the Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami relief effort."

Artists have generous hearts - More for Japan

On March 11, an 8.9 earthquake struck off the northeast coast of Japan near the city of Sendai. It is the most powerful earthquake they ever experienced. Artists Help Japan Earthquake & Tsunami Fund is responding to the immediate needs of survivors as well as short-term to long-term recovery projects undertaken by the affected communities.


Illustration Rally launched the Ganbare Nippon appeal on the 13th of March 2011 in response to the horrific events in Japan on the 11th. This is an overview of the appeal and how you can get involved and support us in supporting Japan. We say "Don't give up Japan" and we will show you the strength and hope in our community.


These are 3 more artist driven efforts to help the ravaged country of Japan. Give what you can- Help spread the word. We're all still ripples.-Kelly

From my first Ripple post:
"All of these talented folks believe like me- if we all do small acts together- we can cause a ripple- and it can grow. We can DO SOMETHING."

The Land of the Rising Sun needs our Help- Art for Japan

Illustrator Meg Hunt has started her own Ripple over at Show and Tell to help the devastated country of Japan after the earthquake and Tsunami.  Unfathomable loss and unfathomable need in the country that has given us thousands of years of the most beautiful art and culture. Western artists have drawn so much from the aesthetic of Japan - lets give some love back with our art and our hearts.
