As we all may have heard, Cecil the Lion was brutally murdered recently. Whilst his story is a horrible one, it is not over yet. His brother was also killed by poachers, leaving the pride, and his cubs unprotected. Now whilst I have some personal opinions as to what should happen to the hunters, this is not what this journal is about.
After some discussion with a good friend of mine TheReticChick we have decided it would be a good idea to hold a charity art auction. To do this, we are looking for anyone who wants to take part. You are to draw a piece of work, around the theme of Lions, or other Big cats. At the end of the event, all pieces will be collected, and they will be auctioned off in the name of charity.
We have contacted a charity that we wish to donate the money to, and are currently waiting on a response. I am posting this to see if there will be enough interest to take part. Everyone is welcome to join.
We would appreciate it if you kept the gore level to a minumim on this one, as they will be sold, and we do not wish to receive complaints about gore and such like. I'm sure you will all understand.
If the charity agree to this, then we will hand all of the information of the auction over to them, since many people wouldn't trust a random person to not keep the money for themselves. Its a worry that would go through my mind. If we do not get any people interested a few of us will still donate some art towards it to auction off. But I though dA would like the opportunity to join in.
Comment below or note me if you wish to help us make a difference, it would be greatly appreciated if some of you would spread the word.
