Endangered Species Art

Christmas Craft Fair... (I know it's only June, but talk to professional Crafters, they understand). So last year I was permitted both by the Fair, and by the Makery via exchange to sell my personally designed bookmarks, earrings, and ornaments that I designed for them.

This year I want to start my own line of products. Something that allows me to share my art AND help the endangered species on the island. After doing some research I've reached out to 4 groups here on the Big Island: Ke Kai Ola (monk seal rescue with the Marine Mammal Center), the Hawaii Island Hawksbill Recovery Project, Rapid 'Ohi'a Death Research Group at UH, and the Hawai'i Wildlife Center up in Kohala with a single goal... creating a line which benefits them and their cause.

How? By December I want to have created a line of paintings, greeting cards, and coloring books which give a portion of the profits to them. The coloring book would follow a simple story of one of their rescue patients. I want to take these to local shops, and online to spread the word about what they do through my artwork.
