Why? I’ve taken the i61 £10 Challenge to help raise a ton of money for 10 great causes in North Wales.
Why so cheap? Surely your artwork should be selling for £50k each, right? i61 Church gave me the £10, to get started. I used £6.50 to buy some nice paper. I already have envelopes. The only cost is postage, so each drawing will contribute at least 50p to the good causes. Also, everyone should have original artwork. Between now and 30 November you can. For one measly pound. Even though these drawings are probably worth like two million pounds or something.
What will I get? An A6 greeting card perfectly folded by me with an original ink or graphite drawing by me on the front. It is suitable for framing, sending to a friend, or saving until my book is published causing it to immediately increase in value by about a gazillion pounds.
Will it be awesome? Way awesome! I’m going to spend at least 613 seconds (that’s over 10 minutes!) on each drawing. If you pay an extra pound, you can tell me what you want the drawing to be about.
I live in [foreign land that isn’t the UK]. Can I still buy a drawing? Yes! Just choose one of the international options.
I have an empty space on the wall of my guest bathroom. I’m trying to decide between a drawing by you and this inspirational piece. Why should I choose a drawing by you? Because fine art for a pound! Because it will really help some people in North Wales. Don’t over think this. Also because eww – always always flush. Also because I will probably raise the price soon.
Life is busier and progress is slower than I hoped, but I have completed a draft of the text and descriptions of all the images. The book will be 32 pages. The working title is The reason why I’m going to the moon for my birthday.
I am thoroughly dissatisfied with the amount of drawing I have done so far this summer. I work best to deadlines. I have wanted to write a children’s book for a long time. Thus: August is my Personal Children’s Book Writing Month. The story is already in my mind. If I do a decent job of getting it out of my head and onto a computer, I will release it somehow, probably on paper with Lulu and/or on iBooks for iPad. I will post updates as I go.
Okay, this is kind of random, but could you draw this quote I got from Bad Translator? In my opinion it it's oddly reminiscent of the stuff you draw: "Like drinking people, Gerald Bidule speaks only about political fish, the daughter of his mind."
I’m so glad that someone finally found the courage to speak out about Gerald Wossname. I believe I speak for Spiffers, Boshy and all right thinking British people when I say this never-ending drivel about his imaginary daughter must stop now! Is Gerald a drinking person or simply mad? Whatever the answer, surely the asylum is the only place for him. —Lady Beeching-Twaddlecroft, Dorking
PS Young Master Gill of Lower Backpain has asked me to enclose his rudimentary effort at an illustration of the offending party. The quality is less than stellar, even for such a young man, but as his mother supplies the manor with a sublime lemon curd I was obliged to honour the request.
