Art Auction This Saturday 21st March!!

Fantastic art auction for charity Yorkhill this Saturday - bring your big fat wallets!!
I've donated that infamous drawing of those 2 braw Proclaimers chappies that got me on STV news, and which the Proclaimers then used on their merchandise. This particular drawing of Craig and Charlie was drawn live of them during their gig on Arran in 2006, along with a drawing of the whole band, plus one of their support band Ten Storeys High. Was a brilliant night, and I was lucky enough to get to see them again in Fort William (quite close to my old home!) which was another joyous occasion!

For a bit more on the charity event this following excerpt is from highly intriguing and quirky photographer Alex Boyd who's submitted one of his brilliant photos for the auction:
Yorkhill Childrens' Foundation Y.C.F make a big difference to the lives of kids who have to stay in Hospital in Glasgow, and throughout the year they help to set up fundraising events to help with the cost of their work. This year I've given one of the Sonnets shots (Elgol and the Cuillins, Skye) to raise funds for the organisation as part of a Charity Auction at Montgomery's Cafe, Radnor Street in Glasgow. The exhibition/auction will have some work by some of Glasgows well known artists. Of these Jenny Soep, the Live music illustrator is exhibiting, who is one of my current favourites.

From the Montgomery's Cafe site:A.S.K. YorkhillA.S.K. Yorkhill is a silent art auction on behalf of Yorkhill Childrens Foundation.
