Day 329 of my 366 Drawing Project by secrets-of-the-pen Day 329 of my 366 Drawing Project by secrets-of-the-pen
Day 329 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.

Ah, yes. Nothing quite like drawing eye close ups. ^.^

>>Created with charcoal and chalk on 2.5x3.5 ACEO gray 500 series Strathmore charcoal paper. About 2 hours.

Special Thanks to ~Ink2Paper916 for the stunning inspiration: [link]


: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]

I'm trying to go through and comment on all the things I've been missing. You've been putting up so many gorgeous things it seems. You work with eyes as always is amazing, the shine and reflected light in it is stunning and you pulled the angle off really well.
