Day 98 - ACEO Drawing Project by secrets-of-the-pen Day 98 - ACEO Drawing Project by secrets-of-the-pen
Day 98 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.

This black paper was a fantastic gift and it was such a joy to play around and test it out today! So excited to see what I can do with it. :D (Another lefty drawing!)

>>Created with charcoal and highlighted with chalk on 2.5x3.5 ACEO Strathmore 500 Series charcoal paper in black. 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 $8 + shipping: [link]

Thank you so much! There are definitely a lot of my ACEOs that I want to rework on a much larger canvas! Maybe once the year is finished. I'll start another project to recreate all my favorites! :D
