Your lovely faces could help raise money for Cancer Research! Please read, thankyou!
Hey HitRECorders :)
I've set myself a new art project and I need YOUR help!
In July this year, my Granda passed away from Cancer only three weeks after finding out he had the disease. Other people in my family have also been affected by Cancer. My uncle's fiancee had Ovarian Cancer a few years back, my other Grandad also passed away from a form of the disease and when I was nine, we lost my Uncle to it also.
This got me thinking, most people I know have had a relative or a friend who has been affected by Cancer. I wanted to help in some way to raise awareness and funds to aid Cancer Research so I started to think about what I could do.
My Granda always loved my artwork so I've decided in memory of him, I want to put together a book of portraits, sell copies of it and donate a large percentage of the profits to Cancer Research.
Soooo that's where you guys come in!
I'd like the book to be a collection of my drawings of people who have either had the disease, know someone who's suffered from it or just basically anyone who'd like to be involved.
I'd like to get as many people involved as I can.
If you're reading this and you'd like to be a part of the book, it would be awesome if you could send me a photograph of yourself, along with your name, which country you're from and a short message to go alongside the drawing of you that I will do.
The message can be in memory of a loved one who you've lost to Cancer or how you feel about the disease. Something positive would be good, a short message to give hope to other people.
The photograph you send me must be a decent size image, close enough to see the details of your face so I can make my drawings accurate. Feel free to post your image and your message in the comments here although it may be better to send them to my email address as I think the pictures will come out bigger.
My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
I will get in touch with you if I'm going to use your image. This is going to be quite a long project which may take some time so don't worry if I don't get back to you straight away.
Thankyou for reading this, I know it's a long message but it's a really important project to me and hopefully together we can help people through art!
P.S For those who have never seen my work, Here is an example
Thanks again for reading this :)
