As I mentioned last week, I have been organizing a fundraiser with a ton of artists to help benefit The Gulf Restoration Network. Like I said then, I am sickened and saddened by the images we're seeing from the gulf. Nothing down there is going unaffected. So, I decided to use the blog as a platform to do something, albeit small, at least it's something. I've asked a bunch of artists to take part and as of today, there are 83 confirmed artists and print shops donating one hundred percent of the proceeds of their work to benefit The Gulf Restoration Network:
Alex Lukas, Alex McLeod, Alexis Amann, Allison Sommers, Allyson Mellberg Taylor, Andrea Daquino, Amanda Michelle Smith, Amy Casey, Amy Sol, Amy Ruppel, Andrea D’Aquino, Annie Koelle, Ashley Anna Brown, Ashley Lande, Audrey Erickson, Ben Venom, Bill Dunlap, Breanne Trammell, Casey Jex Smith, Catherine Campbell, Catherine Ryan, Chris Koelle, Chris Piascik, Christian Rex Van Minnen, Corey Corcoran, Crystal Morey, Dan Gluibizzi, Danna Ray, David Galletly, Derek Weisberg, Dolan Geiman, Ehren Reed, Elbow-Toe, Elisabeth Timpone, Emily Barletta, Esther Pearl Watson, Hannah Stouffer, Happy Owl Glassworks, Hilary Pecis, Irana Douer, Jason Brammer, Jenny Hart, Jennifer Renninger, Jesse Draxler, Jeremy Taylor, Jill Bliss, John Casey, Josie Morway, Julianna Swaney, Justin B. Nelson, Justin Richel, Kate Bingaman-Burt, Kate Miss, Kenn Goodall, Kevin Earl Taylor, Know Hope, Lane Collins, Lena Wolff, Lindsey Carr, Lisa Congdon, Lisa Hanawalt, Lisa Romero, Little Paper Planes, Lizzy Stewart, Luke Ramsey , Mark Todd, Mary Kate McDevitt, Melinda Josie, Michael McConnell, Mike Maxwell, Mon Petit Fantome, Other, Porous Walker, Raul Gonzalez, Remi Thornton, Roll and Tumble Press, Shannon Rankin, Stacey Rozich, Sub-Studio Design Store, Tara Lisa Foley, Tristram Lansdowne, Wendy MacNaughton, Will Bryant.
I am honestly so touched with the enthusiasm and energy of the artists involved. There are so many awesome pieces, I had to randomly choose which to post today. I'll be posting all week about them so you guys can get a sneak peek, and save your money to benefit an awesome cause. It's an awesome opportunity to help and get a beautiful piece of art, a print or a piece of jewelry in the process. I'll also post all of the pieces on the blogs' flickr page at some point today. Here are a few to get you ready!
****The Big Cartel Shop will open on Monday, June 28th, at 12 pm PST (3 pm EST). First come, first serve!
A HUGE thank you to everyone involved! <3Julianna Swaney.Amy Sol. Kevin Earl Taylor. Alex McLeod. Stacey Rozich. Audrey Erickson. Hilary Pecis. Crystal Morey. Kris Chau. Catherine Ryan.
