I spent 1 year hand drawing an intricate artwork on a large scale A0 with a 0.05 fine liner pen as an ode to a passed friend.
On finishing the piece, there was interest and a series of events happened in my life that left me hungry to help in areas where I witnessed neglect. My way of helping is through drawing. So I decided to gift my drawing to a cause of greater value.
I didn’t want to profit from this piece, but wanted to help areas I felt helpless in. I started a JustGiving page with the drawing and invited friends to donate to the Calm Charity. I promised no matter the size of donation, the donator will receive a print in return. So far this site has raised £1300. My target was £2000 so I still have time.
In my haste and ideology at the time I was affluent enough to put the £300 out of my own money into the distribution costs. However, 3 months later, a dry patch in freelance work and I’m looking at that figure with a winced sideways glance.
So I am here, asking you if you can put some money towards printing and you shall also receive a print, but this time your money does not go to Calm, it goes to the printers and helps make the process smoother and less taxing my end.
