Last year I had the pleasure of facilitating Brisbane’s OWOD (One Word One Day) illustrator event. So I was very happy to be part of this year’s event. This time it was held at The Edge, State Library Queensland.
OWOD is a wonderful nationwide event run by the Australian Society of Authors (ASA) in partnership with the Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) and Micador (supplier of all the art supplies). Funds are raised for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation from the sale of the art created at each OWOD event. On Wednesday 26 June it was Queensland’s turn with two groups participating on the day – Brisbane and Cairns.
I took lots of pics, especially the different stages of each artist’s evolving masterpiece.
Instead of posting lots of pics here, please click on the following link for the OWOD post and pics that I wrote for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrator’s (SCBWI) blog as six of the ten artists who participated at Brisbane’s OWOD 2013 event were SCBWI QLD members.
Here is the direct link:
And, if you haven’t already, could you please LIKE the OWOD Facebook page and ask all your friends to do so. The more support we can get on there, the more interest we can get for bidders.
I will keep you updated with any AUCTION news. In the meantime, please pass the word around about LIKING the facebook page. Though the OWOD promoted here is an Australian event, it is a wonderful fundraising opportunity to raise money for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.
Have an inspirational day!
