CALL TO ARTISTS By Enrico Casarosa, Ronnie del Carmen & Maverix Crew

That blog is supposed to talk about what happens weekly to a sketchbook shared between artists but not only. SKETCHTRAVEL is also about what artists from all over the globe can do when they join forces. Please, take a break and read carefully this note.
Thank you very much !

Sketchcrawl and Maverix Studios will be hosting a benefit
art auction on sunday May 20th in San Francisco.
We are hoping you'd be interested in donating a piece of art for
this fundraiser event.

All proceeds will be going to "Emergency- life support for civilian
war victims Organization".

Here's the official website
Watch this video to get an idea of what we are talking about:

In warthorne countries 7% of victims are soldiers, 93% are civilians,
34% of victims of war are children.
"Emergency" is an organization that is trying to do something about
this difficult and sad reality.

As part of the fundraiser ,on may 19th (on the same weekend)
we scheduled the 14th World Wide SketchCrawl.
We'll sketch through out that day around the world to raise funds.
more info on sketchcrawl event here:
The art auction will be held the following day, sunday the 20th.

Here is what we would need for the auction :

Event details:

Sunday May 20th, SketchCrawl/Maverix Benefit Auction
where: Maverix Studios
when: 5pm to 9pm
how: silent bidding, Final bids at 7:30pm.
We will also have a benefit raffle with special prices.

There's no better reason to join in as a community of artists and
friends than to give together.
We believe this humanitarian organization can be a meaningful and
peaceful cause to give our support to.
We hope that with both the World Wide SketchCrawl and the art auction
we'll be raising a good amount of donations,
and maybe even more importantly some awareness for these issues.
Let's make a little difference ...
