Illustrator Ciara Phelan has set up Print Okushon, an auction of stunning prints to raise money for the Japan relief fund, following the tragic earthquake that shook the country last week.
All proceeds of the online action will go to the Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund.
Phelan says, ‘Originally we were hoping to raise £500. It’s been going for a week and we’ve already raised £1 500, so now we’re aiming for £5 000.’
A huge range of artists and illustrators have donated work, including Adam Hayes, Mr Bingo, Ryan Todd, James Jarvis, Patternity, as well as a beautiful work from Phelan herself, which sees a panda-headed being apparently presiding over a tiger and a gingerbread man.
Among our favourites are Supermundane’s eye-weakening green and black print of thousands of smiling anemone-like forms; Nick White’s many faces; and Rob Ryan’s gorgeous, bold screen print.
The prints will be auctioned off on Ebay over the next few weeks. Philanthropy has never looked so pretty.
