Fundraising for Indigenous Literacy Foundation

Hi, Friends, exclusive! I joined "One Word One day" yesterday at ABC building (=Australian Broadcasting Corporation ) It's a charity run by Australian Society of Authors. The created art in the event is donated for an auction in September in Melbourne. All monies raised are going to support "Indigenous Literacy Foundation." Sounds brilliant, doesn't it?

Artists are invited to participate in this annual event in each state’s capital city. You will be given a word and art materials (provided by Micador) to create an artwork inspired by that word. "Scratchy" was the theme for Sydneysiders. *Photos are courtesy of a lovely camera woman, Ms Emily Wiech at ILF.

All of us did our best. I created 3 works in four hours. I weighed on "Aboriginal people." Particularly, two of my works seem to have won ILF and staff's heart. ILF has twitted this work. Friends, do you notice I had put "greenish Australia" in the eye? I heartily hope Indigenous Australians will enjoy fulfilled human rights and see a bright future with dignity. 
I was in very high tension just before moving into colour, after the stage of black and white, peeling off a kitchen towel.
 
Ready, Set, Go!!

My another work that has become popular, is children sharing joy in scribbling English letters on papers. (*later, I added letters and some colours on this work.) Here we go!! 

Nice friends, Rob (Fledman, *right) and Ben (Wood *left) created very charming work. I'll show you them. Rob was working on a humorous and nice cartoon (thanks for invitation of your upcoming book launch!).
This is Ben's really a cute and pretty work. He's a wonderful and established illustrator. 
My "next door" Jill (Carter-Hansen) and other artists. 

According to ILF, this creative One Word One day or OWOD raised $13,500 last year and more than 70 artworks were auctioned. (*yes,  ILF bought my sketch of artists last year.)
If you follow One Word One Day Facebook, you will soon find all our work for auction (are on the way!). 
 ...yes, our message is printed on a cool T shirt! I love it!!
I hope we will directly contribute to society through art.  
Also, I'd say special thanks for backstage players and my linguistics lecturers warm cheers to ILF twitter and facebook. Oh, yes, thank you so much for Ben, you twitted my work!
 Friends, Happy Painting!!!... and happy reading picture books!!
