24 Mammals in 24 Hours!
I am pleased to announce the first-ever Daily Mammal special event: 24 MAMMALS IN 24 HOURS!
On Saturday, December 22, I will be drawing a mammal every hour. That’s right, I’ll stay up all night, draw and scan like crazy, and post the mammals here for you to see.
I’m not just doing this because it will be fun, though. It’s for a special cause: Defenders of Wildlife, a 60-year-old nonprofit organization operating nationally that works to protect wild animals and their habitats. For more information about what they do, visit their website. If you have questions about how and why I chose them, post ’em here.
Now, here’s where it gets fun for you, too. If you make a donation of at least $25 (using the DONATE button on the right-hand side of this website), you get to request a mammal. I’ll draw it on December 22, then I’ll send you the original art! Each mammal drawing is about 5″ by 8″. I draw on tracing paper (but I don’t trace!) with markers, pens, and colored pencils. I’ll send your original art along with a gray piece of cardstock, like the ones I use when I scan my drawings, to provide the perfect background for framing your mammal. I will send all the mammals out on Monday, December 24.
Tell me your favorite mammal (or, if you don’t have one, let me choose one for you) and donate at least $25. You’ll help animals and get a lovely piece of original art. The button’s just right over there! And please stop by throughout the day on Saturday, December 22, to give me some moral support!
