We don't have to just watch the BP/Gulf Oil Leak Disaster on the news, we can do something, even if it's only 2.5 x 3.5". Let's all join member, Kelly Light at http://Ripplesketches.blogspot.com and make a few ripple art cards that will add up to a tsunami of good.
In addition to the usual CBIG monthly theme illustrations, CBIG members may also post their Ripple Card Art here to bring more exposure to the effort. Art cards may be "bought" by giving a donation to 2 Non-Profits, The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies and The International Bird Rescue Research Center . Please see http://Ripplesketches.blogspot.com for details on how to participate as either artists or as art "buyers" to raise funds to help save the Gulf wildlife from the deadly oil leak.
As far as what's acceptable for the Ripple illustration theme - just think of all that's effected by the BP/Gulf Oil leak: the people, the environment, the birds, the mammals all the critters big and small.
Thanks all for helping to make big waves.
