Toys for Tots...thank you for your support!

Monday, December 10, 2007

December 8th and 9th saw some of Second Life's best known musical talents come together with artists and fashion designers for an incredibly successful fundraising event in support of Toys for Tots. All told, approximately $450,000L was raised for this very worthwhile charity.

I was honoured to have been asked to participate and took the opportunity to get creative and shoot some images specifically for the event. They had been looking for very specific themes in the art to be sold...and I just didn't feel I had any existing images to contribute. I am actually glad that I didn't...I had alot of fun setting up a bit of a studio shoot...including the one posted here.

Paula and I went to see the our first SL fashion show...the culmination of the two day event. OMG! The bidding was fast and furious...perhaps a little insane at times...but all for a good cause. By the time I worked out wanting the bid on something...the darn thing already had bids up over $1,000! It was quite something to see...congratulations to all involved.

Ultimately I ended up selling 9 works and purchased one from another artist.
