Art Auction for Japan Animal Relief

My good friend and co-worker at The Anipal Times, Cheshire Kitten (@cheshireK), is hosting The Art Auction for Japan Animal Relief on his blog, Cheshire Kitten Loves Karma. The auction has already raised over $300 US for the pawesome World Vets organization. 

1st item in the Art Auction for Japan Animal Relief:
'Parasols for Japan' by @cheshirek's mom!
The auction will feature a new art work daily, indefinitely, so sign up for email updates on CheshireK's blog to be notified of each auction. It's a great way to support animal rescue efforts in Japan, check out or buy some great art, and/or learn about animal-loving artists. 

Mom donated a framed, matted Limited Edition print of her portrait of @Mariodacat, signed and numbered 2/5. 

She presented Mario the first/original print at the recent #NipClub Pawty in his honor on March 3rd, 2011. 

This Mario portrait auction ends at 8:59 pm EDT, April 5.

From Cheshire Kittens Art Auction for Japan Animal Relief site:

"As I told readers a few days ago, we have a very special work up first in this week’s auction. Yes, we’re kicking off round two of the Art Auction for Japan Animal Relief with a portrait of one of the pillars of the anipal community, Mario (@mariodacat on Twitter).

Limited Edition 2/5 signed Mario Print

In addition to encouraging everyone in the anipal community on Twitter, Mario and his human mom are big supporters of animal rescue in their community, in particular of Happily Ever After Animal Sanctuary in their home state of Wisconsin. Mario has also been instrumental in re-homing kitties all over the United States. Mario is a loyal follower of this blog and blogs himself on Mario’s Meowsings.

The artist — Cokie the Cat’s mom Kristin — is also an active member of the twitter anipal community. In addition to working in the movie industry, Kristin is a great artist. She also types for Cokie at his blog, Cokie the Cat: Hollywood Insider.

Kristin has donated the signed, numbered print of her portrait of Mario that we open bidding on today. The print is 5×7 and matted in an 8×10 black frame. This print is one of a limited edition of five signed prints, the first of which is owned by Mario himself.

The auction proceeds go to World Vets for their relief deployment in Japan. If you would prefer not to participate in the art auction but would like to support World Vets, head off to the donation page at the World Vets website. If you want to encourage the artists and bidders, we encourage you to leave comments with or without bids!
World Vets in Japan
The auction opens tonight and runs for 48 hours till 8:59 pm EDT, April 5. To bid on the portrait of Mario, leave a comment with your bid. Opening bid is $25. Please bid in increments of $5 or $10.

Bidders, enjoy yourselves and remember that you are giving to two causes at once. You give support to the relief workers in Japan AND to the creative work of our artists at the same time. AND you get a cool artwork for your own house."

Hi Cokie! Thank you for visiting my blog :-) It is very nice to meet you. Your mom is a wonderful artist and so nice to donate her art work for auction!
I read your article about water fountain. So you don't like it? I hope you got to like it later or your mom decided to get rid of it...:-)
