Artwork currently for auction at Art 4 Heart for flood relief – clockwise from top left, one of a collection for auction by Kate Banazi, ‘Work it Baby‘ by Kat Macleod, and ‘Up do and red lips‘ by Bec Winnel and ‘Kirsten‘ by Kelly Thompson, Pop on over and place your bid!

OK so I have kind of been trying to avoid too much flood-related stuff here over the past couple of weeks… there are just SO MANY incredible flood relief fundraising events going on in the art / craft / design and blogging communities, I didn’t really know where to begin!  I’ve received countless submissions about creative fundraisers, but I hope you’ll forgive me for just selecting a couple which have caught my eye… the idea of trying to formulate any kind of exhaustive list is just too overwhelming!

One of the most amazing fundraisers Jenny and I have spotted is the Art 4 Heart auction - they’ve just opened the bidding on lot 2 and it is a seriously stellar line-up!  Illustrators and artists including Kat Macleod, Lilly Piri, Bec Winnel and Kate Banazi have all generously donated to the cause… pop on over and make a bid before this Thursday Jan 27th to show your support (and hopefully nab yourself a beautiful print!)

In case you didn’t notice, I also feel compelled to remind you about Kate Banazi‘s BRILLIANT package of hi-res downloads from her guest blog here recently.  You can purchase all 5 hi-res (300dpi – top print-quality!) artwork files for just $10.00, 100% of which goes to flood relief, AND your donation will be DOUBLED with another $10.00 from her hubby Alistair’s work!  Nice one.  These prints would be SO PERFECT for printing out and framing, making cards or wrapping paper… pop on over to support Kate’s fabulous efforts!
