One-Line Drawings of Your Animal Friends for $5 each!
That’s right. A whole drawing made without ever lifting my pen off the paper!
My dear friend Scott was recently diagnosed with The Big C, rendering him jobless while he powers through chemo and surgeries.
Scott is a really stellar human being who has played a crucial role in my life, and has also been instrumental in the vegan, running, and cycling communities.
He has done so much for others– it’s time to do something for him!
To learn more about Scott and his journey, visit his incredibly honest and introspective blog: Run Fast. Run Vegan.
To help with his day to day living expenses I’m selling one-line animal drawings, and I’d love to draw your animal friend! Every cent from this project will go straight to Scott.
I will draw one 8.5 x 5.5 inch portrait for $5-20+ (sliding scale; donate what you can!).
These will be drawn on cream-colored cardstock in black ink.
I will draw a set of five 4.25 x 5.5 cards (with envelopes) for $20-30+ (sliding scale; donate what you can!).
These will be drawn on cream-colored cardstock with black ink, and are blank inside. The envelopes are also cream-colored.
Frequently Asked Question
Q: What is a one-line drawing?
A: The one-line drawing is made by never lifting my pen off of the paper. So every mark you see is the result of one very long and twisted line. You’ll see one tail where I started the drawing and one tail where I ended it (at my signature in the lower right corner).
Q: Does the drawing have to be of an animal? Does it have to be my pet?
A: As you can see from the whale and panda drawings (in the slideshow below), I’m happy to draw any animal! You name it, and I’ll draw it. I’m happy to find an image to work from if you don’t have one. Whether you want a one-line drawing of your family’s cat, a giraffe, or a T-rex, I can make that happen. Your one-line drawing doesn’t have to be of an animal. I can draw your bicycle or french press if you want! The only thing I can’t do (yet?) is humans. Trust me, it would be a disaster.
Q: What will my donation benefit?
A: Scott is out of work while he undergoes chemo treatments, appointments, and surgeries. Money made through this project will help cover his basic costs of living (food, rent, bills, and, yes, even a cup of coffee or two).
Q: So, how do you get one?
A: Send a photograph or two of your animal friend and a Paypal payment to email@example.com. Make sure to include your mailing address!
Q: What if I want to help Scott, but don’t want a one-line drawing? Are there other fundraisers happening?
A: Yes, if you are inclined to help Scott, but don’t want a one-line animal drawing, you can find more ways to help on the Run Fast. Run Vegan. FUNdraisers! post.
