Desert Bus for Hope 6

It's that wonderful week of the year where gamers and fellow-nerds tune into Desert Bus for Hope. All week long, the dedicated individuals who run this charity event play the game Desert Bus and raise money for Child's Play Charity, who donates games and toys for children in hospitals. There are guest callers, live auctions, silent auctions, giveaways, and all kinds of excitement going on!

UPDATE: Thank you everyone for tuning in and yea to the winning bidders!

This is my third year donating an item for their auction and I love being involved and meeting new people through this Desert Bus event. The Legend of Zelda is one of my favorite game series so that is what I chose to paint this year. It is a mystery just how Link is able to carry all those items in his inventory so my painting depicts Link traveling Hyrule with all his stuff. Zelda also likes to travel the world and her kingdom, so I made a companion painting featuring her as well.

I also debossed the mat's with the Triforce symbol (to be extra nerdy!). These paintings will be up for the live auction HERE on Wednesday, Nov 21st at 12:00pm EST (or 2:00 CST). You must have a donor account to be able to bid in the chat. (see the FAQ for more info on this).

Update: SOLD for $1515.15!!! 


This year I am also doing a CUSTOM PAINTING based on the video game of the winning bidders choice. I get a lot of requests for video game commissions, so if you are interested or emailed me in the past for a custom piece, this is your chance!!! Again all the money goes towards Child's Play Charity so it's a double win.

The silent auction for the custom painting 5x7 based on the video game of your choice goes live Wed, November 21st at 6:00AM (PST). Click here to go to the auction link.

Update: SOLD for $1818.18!!!

The painting above is the "Custom Painting" winner from Desert Bus for Hope two years ago, and the clients game choice was Super Mario Galaxy. I had not played the game but had the fun of doing a little "research" and playing the game. The music was amazing and being a Mario fan it was great to see such an interesting world for Mario to be in.

Tune in to Desert Bus for Hope and check it out. There are a lot of really great items being auctioned, and awesome people visiting in and doing what they can to help earn money for the charity.
