Just letting everyone know that the Brownstones to Red Dirt postcards are up on ebay! Below is a little more about the auction and project.
"As an extension of the documentary BROWNSTONES TO RED DIRT, Copper Pot Pictures has paired with Schools for Salone to hold an online art auction to benefit kids in need in Sierra Leone and New York. The auction includes over 150 pieces created by some of the top names in animation as well as children’s book, graphic novel and comic illustration, including Oscar-winning director Chris Wedge, Toy Story 3 Art Director Daisuke Tsutsumi, renowned illustrator Peter DeSeve and legendary Sesame Street puppeteer Caroll "Big Bird" Spinney.
Each artist was given a blank birchwood postcard and asked to create a unique work based on the theme, “PEN PALS.” All proceeds will be used to build a school for war orphans in Freetown, Sierra Leone and to develop a library for at-risk youth in Brooklyn. Winning bids will be tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Please visit our blog to see all of the cards. To learn more about the schools and see clips of the kids from the film, please visit our website."
Happy Bidding! Auction ends March 13th!
