A dear friend of mine mentioned 1000 Drawings Amsterdam.
The goal of the foundation is to transform society through creative expression in its broadest sense. Every year they choose a good cause to support and this year it is Young in Prison.

Young in Prison offers educational and creative workshops to help youth return to society with prospects for a better future.

Get creative. Support Young in Prison
In 2011 you can doodle and donate (= purchase drawings) to help the children in the Bonnytoun Prison in South Africa, a project by Young in Prison, who offer education and creative workshops to help them return into society with prospects for a better future!

…a creative platform that collects and sells 1000s of A5 drawings from and to everybody who loves to support the good cause and a unique, interactive stage for artistic talents to get up, stand up and rise & shine! Are you involved in art, music, fashion, theatre, photography, film, dance, literature, performance?
It's almost 3 March, send them so they arrive on time, before 1 March if you can! Theme: “Draw anything, with anything on anything A5!”

The last weeks were so busy. Meetings, deadlines, Amsterdam Fashion Week.
Today I finally found time to visit a few of my favourite sites again. And to my surprise I see the illustration that I made of Style Bubble at her blog at January 31, 2011. Susie posts these great and varied photo series and I love her cheeky way of writing.

Last week I completed a special assignment. For a new magazine to come out soon. More info later at my blog. Every time I‘m glad with the surprising contracts that are being awarded towards me, the people I meet, the opportunities and invitations I get and most of all the people who love me back. I love the world of fashion.
