The wonderful, talented Kelly Light came up with a brilliant idea to help the poor innocent critters of the Gulf oil spill. She created a movement called “Ripple“, a blog where you can purchase a 3.5″x2.5” Artist Trading Card, donated by one of many participating artists throughout the globe. You do this by donating $10 to The Institute for Marine Mammels Studies or International Bird Rescue Research Center. Or you can participate by creating and donating one or more trading cards for the effort.

Either way, or both ways, Ripple is very empowering. So far Kelly has raised over $900, one card at a time!

Posted here are two cards I’ve created for Ripple. Below “Loggerhead Turtle” from last week and above “Hazmat Seagulls” I just created. It’s becoming quite addicting. I’ll probably keep creating cards as long as Ripple has a need to exist.

So, stop by Ripple and check out the wonderful art and join the effort to help the gulf oil spill animals. Instructions on how to participate can be found on the Ripple Blog.

    So good to see you’re a part of this too!! They’re amazing cards.

    I need to catch up on your wonderful art my dear.

    Miss you!

    OMGosh! These are wonderful illustrations and for a wonderful cause. I am just sickened by this oil spill which is being labeled the worst in our history. It’s so sad the BP is not taking full responsibility for this atrocity and is looking for us to help bail them out! Maybe if they stop paying their stock holders huge amounts of money they can do a better job and stop dragging this thing out.

    I am so happy you decided to take part in this noble effort with your fabulous work. Have a great and wonderful weekend.

    The turtle is great. Love the new one also. Very creative. Especially the fish with the mask on. Funny but gets the point across.

  12. Just been through some of your other work and I must say – I’ve been knocked flat! I just loooooove your work. You’re sending me away with a smile (only bc my ds has been begging me to play PS2 with him) but I’ll be back. Wish you were on Twitter – I’d love to follow you. Have a great day!

    while this is very sad, the hazmat suits are really kinda cute, I think you have a good solution for the pelicans!

  17. emily Says:

    Sigh… sad reality!
    That said… I SOOOOOO want one of those duck suits!
    (Too soon?)

  18. Mary Says:

    Your cards are wonderful….I’m just sorry they have to be for a cause like this. The hazmat suits are great…too bad they don’t really have something like that to protect them.
