Donkeys for Donations!

Since I have been having trouble getting folks to donate toward DONKEYTREK on our GoFundMe page, I decided to make it a bit more appealing and approachable! I decided to do Donkeys for Donations, a THIS WEEK ONLY deal, where in appreciation for a donation of $10 per animal I will draw folks’ donkeys, mules, or horses in cartoon fashion. This has really been successful and we are on our way finally raising some funds to help with our mission! It has also been fun for me to draw and doodle donkeys, mules, and horses! I have done pet portraiture as a business before and the time and effort that goes in to doing full out portraiture precludes it from being an easy task for raising funds. This has already been fun and seems to be working well! You will have to excuse the darkness of the photos..my camera does not take good pictures of artwork!

This Donkey Doodle, done of a BIG mammoth donkey gelding Gonzo, was one of the most fun to draw so far. His owner, Veronica Baldock, was really happy about it and told me this (which made me tear up a little!):

“I honestly teared up when I saw the portrait of my best friend [Gonzo]. He has been with me through my house burning down, heartbreak, and my struggle with depression. This donkey is the only thing that keeps me motivated to live life to the fullest. Thank you for this amazing gift that will always be with me for the rest of my life.”
