A few weeks ago a message came through the Illustration Friday blog, asking people to donate sketches of ocean creatures and birds. The proceeds would go to help wildlife that has been affected by the oil spill in the Gulf.
It took me a while to get my act together, but I finally sent my contribution. In the meantime, I was able to watch the Ripple blog grow from a few sketches to nearly 900. It has raised nearly $10,000, which is apparently enough money to wash the oil off a thousand birds.
