Here is an illustration I produced very quickly for a charity project called 1000 cranes to raise money and hope for the people of Japan who are facing what for much of the world can only be described as an unimaginable series of disasters.
For £2 you can download an illustration of your choice and create an origami crane from it using the included instructions. Why a crane? I'll let the guys from Anomaly (great name!) who's brainchild the project is explain -
'The Thousand Origami Cranes is an ancient Japanese legend which promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. The crane in Japan is one of the most holy creatures and is said to live for a thousand years. In Japan, it is commonly said that folding 1000 paper origami cranes makes a person's wish come true.'
The artworks on the site is growing so please do head over and have a look and get involved.
Medium: pencil, acrylic, photoshop
Bye for now.
