Art with a cause

>Jen Corace is my new favourite illustrator and fine artist. I think her combination of pastel-like colours with playful narratives gives her work an adult innocence. Who doesn’t want to be ice-skating with their best friend/sister in a brilliant coat in a forest setting? I couldn’t save the pic, but go to the fine art section, bottom right to make sense of my description.

I recently purchased her artwork, Down Down Down, sold through Tiny Showcase to support the Gulf Restoration Network. They raised $11,595 USD in 10 days through the contribution of 50% of sales of her swimmingly sensational creativity. Tiny Showcase is one site that deserves full cred for curatorial vision and charity fundraising. Go to it and buy yourself a great print for a good cause.
