Art Cards for a Better World

Many of you have no doubt heard about the Deep Water Horizon Gulf Oil Spill that occurred recently. This left many feeling helpless as to how to help. Well illustrator Kelly Light has created the Ripple Project for artists the world wide. Artists can now donate gulf wildlife themed artist cards to the Ripple Project to help benefit the wildlife victims of the oil spill. Each card is sold for $10 and 100% of the proceeds go to The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies and The International Bird Rescue Research Center.

Please visit The Ripple Project and donate today! I have donated 11 cards so far (most of which sold in only a few hours) So if you would like a card by me you’d better flock over to The Ripple Project.

Edited: 7/19/2010 12:02pm My cards sold out in a matter of hours again so I will try to create and donate some more. In the mean time please look at the lots of other cards available and please donate to the cause if you can!

A little More About the Art
10 out of 11 of the pieces I donated are the first 100% digital paintings I have ever made, both drawn and painted on the computer. Using Painter’s excellent brush software I created a pencil that had the look and feel of the blue lead I draw with normally outside the computer. It’s nice when artistic experiments can benefit animals. You could say I’m saving two birds with one hand.

What people are saying about Kat’s work for the Ripple Project:

“Wow! Your cards are beautiful!!!!”

“Just amazing–I only knew your fantasy work (which is amazing, too) but these are fantastic!”
