Dingbats For Sale!
I am selling a bunch of drawings (50, over the course of a few weeks) that I did for the Reasons To Be Cheerful journalism project We Are Not Divided.
We Are Not Divided is a collaborative, in-depth journalism project that explores the human capacity – and deeply human desire – to overcome division, in turn promoting a message of unity and bridging divides leading up to the U.S. election this November. We Art Not Divided is a special six-week project produced by the solutions-based online magazine Reasons to be Cheerful, the inaugural project of Arbutus Foundation.
The idea for the dingbat drawings came about when my colleagues at Reasons to Be Cheerful suggested I might make a series of illustrations to accompany the articles published as part of the We Are Not Divided project. I said I couldn’t draw to order, but I could provide a library of images to draw from.
I’m selling a bunch of these signed originals to help cover the expenses of this project. They’re not cheap, but the money goes to this project which I have to say is somewhat astounding, AND you get a tax write off for the cost of the drawing, as Arbutus is a non profit!
The Pace Gallery has generously offered to host this sale online. There’s even a small physical exhibition in their gallery on 25th street if you’re in NYC. To view them and get more information (why are they called dingbats?), click the link here.
