Day 246 - ACEO Drawing for Charity by secrets-of-the-pen Day 246 - ACEO Drawing for Charity by secrets-of-the-pen
Day 246 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.

Too cute to resist.

Special thanks to =FriendFrog for the lovely photo! [link]

>>Created with charcoal and chalk and highlighted with acrylic paint on 2.5x3.5 ACEO gray 500 series Strathmore charcoal paper. About 2 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 $11 + shipping: [link]

I would love to see a tutorial done by you - something like "step by step - how to do the feathers".
Gergeus drawing, like most of yours by the way :))

yup, I'm currently in some "crazy-about-owls" phase.. but I loved them since I was a kid.. and I'm thinking about draw one on my bedroom wall, I just need to find a good reference to do that :)
