World Child Cancer - Cait's Caraids 2017 fundraising campaign

So last year, many of you know that I raised some money for WCC through sales of the DollFrasers calendar, dividing 2/3 of the profits between Cait’s charity and Bloodwise, Sam’s charity. 

So when I saw that WCC were launching a new fundraising campaign I really really wanted to be involved, as well as being able to complete the virtual Voyager walk over the course of the summer, through many mini walks, hopefully with the dollFrasers, which I hope to document in photos! 

(Pic from the Gold Walk last year)

However, in the meantime I wanted to be able to do something more immediate to raise money for such an incredibly worthy cause, and so this is what I’ve come up with :

I am going to produce 2 pieces of original Outlander artwork - my usual pencil sketches, but featuring multiple faces - and then once they are done, I will auction them off here on tumblr and the monies from the winning bidders will be donated to World Child Cancer. 

Nice and simple, hopefully! So basically, watch this space…😬  

( And for those of you on limited budgets, if you are maybe interested in buying some of my artwork, I am planning to make some of my other sketches into prints - I’m just trying to work out the best way of doing it! (I’d love to hear from other artists on tumblr who have done this))
