I'm sure many of you have read about Stephanie and Christian Nielson and the terrible plane crash they were in. What a heartbreaking story. They have such a beautiful family. If you haven't please read about it here. I found out about this a few days ago but I've been so busy that I hadn't had a chance to really post about it. Designmom posted an enormous list today of all the fundraising that is going on on their behalf. In my small way I hope to contribute too.
This week I don't have time to make anything new so I will be auctioning off a piece that I was hoping to keep for myself. It's my last 'Into the Woods' piece. The illustration itself is 4" x 6" and the entire piece has a two inch border (not completely shown in the image) which makes it an 8" x 10" piece.
I've never done an auction before so here are my rules. Hope it works out. Here's what we'll do:
1 - Please place your bid by leaving a comment with your bid amount in the comments section. Make sure it is higher than the previous bid and only in whole dollars.
2 - At the close of the auction (Sept. 1st), I will contact the winner. The winner will pay the amount of their winning bid to the Stephanie and Christian PayPal account. The winner will then forward the PayPal receipt to me and I'll send the artwork to them.
3 - The auction will end at noon PST on Monday, September 1, 2008.
