To celebrate and honor Mother’s day this year I am auctioning original ink drawings on Instagram. The auction will benefit Break the Cycle, which is the only national non-profit working exclusively on preventing dating abuse and promoting healthy relationships.

Auction ends each day at midnight. Thank you for your support.

thank you

Thank you for your ideas, messages and support. There are still drawings available here. For awhile I thought I was bananas for committing to 100 drawings as my hands began to ache and I fought a headache all day. Your love pushed me through.

We’ve raised $3,600 thus far. Thank you for committing your support to help immigrant families.

Art matters, it’s light in the darkness.

Keep fighting, keep resisting.

drawing all day!

    

I’m drawing all day to raise money and fight the inhumane treatment of immigrants.

This will be my only update because I have A LOT of drawing to do in order to hit 100. I’ll probably draw all night – if you want to follow along on twitter or instagram stories, that’s where I update regularly. Folks have already supported and I thank you. You can find all the available drawings as they’re made here.

Keep fighting, keep resisting.

art for good 100 drawing challenge

I could let the ocean of bad news swallow me whole. My toes, ankles and knees are submerged. I keep my body up and dry with art. Art is my raft and although it cannot save me from everything, it gives me hope. As more human rights are stripped away by a callous government I am desperate for hope.
Tomorrow, June 28th, I will attempt to create 100 original drawings in a day to raise money for charity similar to the ink drawings above, made in 2016. I am placing my work obligations on hold because resisting and connecting is far more important. Each drawing will be available for sale and every dollar of the sale (less shipping) will be donated here. In order to do this I set a few parameters – each drawing will be in black ink with gold and red embellishments. Each will have a character plus something (animal, object, etc). They will not be named but numbered. Each drawing will be posted immediately, with the help of my office manager Nickole, here.
Lastly, I will take suggestions. Email, tweet or comment and I will do my best to create based on your suggestions. I will need your help. I will post process, WIPs, and perhaps even some live videos on instagram.
I need to create art. I need to build a raft of hope with you.
Let’s fight the good fight together.

inktober

The free spirit ($45, available)

The adventurer (sold)

Inktober is one of my favorite artist community activities. I will participate as much as I can this year (not daily because I’ll be on the road most of the month). Here’s my first two… it’s been a very long time since I’ve drawn things just for fun. It feels very, very good.

All inktober drawings are available for purchase if you’re the first to contact me. They measure 2.5×3.5 on bristol board made with a combination of brush pen, gold paint, and a dash of colerase pencils. I will update the post when they’re gone!
