The Mercy Centre Foundation Appeal

September 23, 2008

During the last few months three lowly sketch pads have been making their way around the country and pitching up at the studios and homes of some very well recognised artists.  Their once empty pages are now over flowing with paintings from –

 

Mr Jago                                                   

Chinamike

Guy Denning

Grafter                                              

Rourke

Jef Aerosol

Beejoir
Matt Small                            

Miss Bugs
Goldie                            

Mau Mau
Hush                 

Neverwork
Brian Jones

Dale Grimshaw
Herakut                 

Case
SPQR

Nick Walker

 

These sketch pads have now made their way back to the place where it all began, but this is not the end of the journey, they have one final trip to make and it could be to your house!

 

The pads are to be auctioned in October in order to raise funds for the Mercy Centre Foundation who work to help the children and communities of the many slums of Bangkok.  You could win an incredibly rare piece of art and help an extremely worthwhile cause.

All that’s left to say now is good luck and thanks to all that take part in the auction and of course to Neil (aka Harveyn) and Ged who have set up and organised this fund-raiser.
