Call out to artists: The Paper Watch Project Jul 17 2013Advice and call outs
Advocate Art are a great supporter of charity especially one so close to everybody's hearts. When we heard the news regarding Mandy at Templar we wanted to do our bit to help the cause. Having checked with Templar we were okay to do so, we'd like to send a call out to all our talented artists to see if they could spare an hour or so to illustrate a paper watch for a Templar Charity Auction. Please see below for more details: Templar Publishing needs your help – We have been challenged to raise £5000 for Breast Cancer Care, and here's why… Raising money for breast cancer became particularly relevant for Templar when it was announced just before Christmas that Amanda Wood, Creative Director of Templar Publishing, was being treated for cancer. We are delighted to say that Mandy is responding well to treatment, but the news has affected us deeply. We have done all manner of crazy things to raise money thus far from marathons and hikes to beard growing contests. Now we would like to call upon you to help us hit our target. With such an amazing wealth of talented illustrators at our fingertips we were keen to mute an idea with you – We fully understand you have the pressure of deadlines and demands on your time but we have had a brilliant idea. We have sourced some amazing paper watches which we would dearly love you to decorate for us. We then hope to raise millions of bucks auctioning them for charity. If you can find the time and are happy to support us in this amazing project (you won't be judged if you say NO or even don't email back at all!!) but if you are keen to be involved please email [email protected] and she will dispatch your watch tout sweet. Alternatively please feel free to donate on or share our Just Giving page Templar salutes you!
