Day 102 - ACEO Charity Project by secrets-of-the-pen Day 102 - ACEO Charity Project by secrets-of-the-pen
Day 102 of my 366 daily art project! A lot more are on the way! Please read all about my project and charity below and in my journal.

Another card that shows my love for dance and silhouettes. :D

>>Created with charcoal and highlighted with chalk on 2.5x3.5 ACEO bristol vellum card. About 3 hours.

:bulletred: See all my ACEO's in my gallery here: [link]





-----------------

♥ For every day of 2012, I will be drawing one ACEO sketch card. Every single one will be for sale - ALL proceeds to be donated to charity at the end of 2012.

My charity of choice is a local foundation called Alternatives to Violence, who is currently raising money to build a safehouse. This safehouse will provide a secure shelter to men, women and children who have recently escaped physical and sexual abuse.

With the safehouse, 312 individuals every year will receive crisis intervention, counseling, safety planning, advocacy and shelter.

Together, through art, we can help make a difference.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
If you love this piece and the safehouse project, you can see the card to purchase at Etsy for $8 + shipping: [link]

Hello. I'm an amateur music box orchestrator.
I often upload my works onto youtube.
Now I create Ponchielli - Dance of the Hours from "La Gioconda" on a music box.
Can I use your illustration (this and maybe day335) on my music box work?
These are samples of my music box work.

I definitely recommend trying charcoal, then. :) You can get some great, true blacks from them!
