NOTE - added 6/11/09 - The Rosie and Lia originals have sold.
These two ACEO drawings of Moon Bears are now available at auction on Art By Us. The auctions run through May 27th (ending at 7pm CST) - click on either image to see the auction listing. I'll donate 50% of the proceeds to Animals Asia Foundation (AAF).
"Rosie", 2.5" x 3.5" mixed media drawing
"Lia", 3.5" x 2.5" scratchboard & watercolor drawing
As I've written in previous posts, I joined the Ursa Freedom Project group to help raise funds for AAF's Moon Bear rescue efforts. All along, I'd planned to create some art of Moon Bears to sell on-line. In addition to these two drawings, I have a pencil drawing nearly finished and I may do a small square painting. I also have note cards and 2 sizes of reproduction print of the Rosie image on Bonanzle.
UFP's purpose is to raise awareness and funds for the bears rescued from bile farms in China & Vietnam. UFP is working directly with AAF to support their efforts to rescue and provide sanctuary for these charismatic bears. Click here for the Press Release from UFP.
If you're not interested in the art, but would still like to help the bears, you can make a donation via PayPal.
