Illusio Creative – Art for African Famine

Monday, August 8th, 2011

Well I have been full of cold and not very productive for the past week or so. I have a few bits ready to scan and put up here but, between work, sleeping and generally feeling grotty I’m afraid I do not have much of my own to say.

So I thought I would use the opportunity to support an appeal from fellow blogger and illustrator Lorrie Whittington – Illusio Creative.

Lorrie is auctioning two of her beautiful original illustrations and all of the proceeds will go to UNICEF.

Lorrie says:

“As we are all aware, there is a crisis in Africa; drought, conflict, escalating food prices have created a serious shortage bordering on famine, and it’s getting worse. They need our aid, children are dying, more will die soon. To that end I am auctioning two of my original illustrations never before offered for sale, as I had not intended to part with them. However, I feel that this is an important cause, so there we have it.”

It can be very hard to part with something you have created with love and have a particular affection for. Each illustration has a starting bid of £20 but Lorrie would never normally part with an illustration for this little let alone ones that she is attached to in this way so please support this very worthy cause generously so that Lorrie knows that it was worthwhile.

Full details of how to bid etc can be found here: Art Auction for African Famine Appeal
