Illustration Friday - Ripple

My 9-year-old daughter Gwyneth and I made some sketches for ripplesketches which was set up by Kelly Light to help the poor animals that are suffering from the Deep Water Horizon Gulf Oil Spill disaster...it's just terrible what's happening there. If you donate $10 to The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies or The International Bird Rescue Research Center you can have one of these illustrations...please go HERE to find out exactly how...

UPDATE: not sure when ours will be posted or if they will be at this point - the blog posting is behind and hopefully this is a good sign that so many artists are donating works of art for this good cause...

here's mine:


here's my 9-year-old's work:
this is a bunny trying to swim in the oily gulf


and her other donation is a drawing of a horse trying to contact his turtle friend on his conch shell phone - except only oil is coming out:


(this hasn't been posted on ripplesketches just yet but i will keep my eye out for when it is)

Your daughter is brilliant!!! Like her incredibly talented mother, she has a bright future both as an artist!! But I think she may also have a future as a political cartoonist!! What a powerful and poignant commentary she has made through her art!! And as always, your art is truly gorgeous and moving! Love, Janine XO
