I made an inquiry on Facebook about what to do with the growing pile of paper I have with drawings and other art experiments that I need to do something about. I had enough people show interest in an art rescue project so this is the event.
I do not live close to anyone I know, so I can’t just have someone come over and pick out what they like to take home. So rather than throwing the pile into recycling, and as I can’t afford to mail it out, people will need to send me the postage amount to rescue this art.
Most of the art is from the art challenges I participated in last year of Junicorn, Junefae, Septembird, and Inktober as well as some inspired by Ellen Million’s Sketchfest, the app Sktchy and just stuff that just had to be tried.
To make it as fair as possible I have a gallery on Facebook with an image of each piece of art on the chopping block and anyone can comment on that image to make a pledge for rescuing that piece of art. You are welcome to pledge more than the $10 minimum but I don’t expect you to, except if more than one person wants a piece of art, then I am afraid it becomes a bidding war. Each person with an interest in that piece of art comments on that image with their bid, and the last comment with the highest bid, wins the piece of art. If there is a piece of art that gets no pledges, then not all hope for it is lost. There is a chance it will end up in a random package with one of the other pieces of art as packing material.
I will have the gallery open for pledges for two weeks, so hopefully by then everyone who wants to participate will have had a chance. I will make a final comment on each pledge as to whom I intend to send the art to.
I just want to thank everyone who commented on and liked my original inquiry about getting rid of all this random spare art. It’s because of you I am putting in this effort to save these pieces of paper rather than throwing them into recycling or using as fire starting materials.

How to pay the pledge.
My paypal account is linked to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org, or email me at that same address and we can make other arrangements.
If you are interested in digital prints, cards and other merchandise, many of my images are available through print on demand services such as Fine Art America/ Pixels, Café Press, Redbubble or Zazzle. If you missed getting a pledge on a piece of art, or I have some art that only exists in digital form, or the original wasn’t available for rescue at this time, this is the next best way to get something I created.
If you like to colour or just want digital copies of some of my images, I share some of my line art each month on Patreon for a small subscription.
Thanks again for your interest in my art!
