It is very gratifying when someone likes your work enough to praise it. Its thrilling when someone likes it enough to purchase it. I'm not sure what word suits the feeling of having someone or an organization like your work enough to want it to represent them to the world.
Recently I was approached by Miaka Palmieri, of For The Love of a Horse, a fairly new charitable horse rescue operation in Georgia, USA. They had purchased a business card package from my Zazzle shop with the pen & ink drawing "Innocence", a three day old foal, on it. They were interested in possibly licencing this artwork to represent their organization, selling it on t-shirts etc for fund raising. I was honoured to have my art so highly considered, but since I'm unfamiliar with licencing and already sell "Innocence" on other products etc. I decided to offer them artwork created just for their organization. At this point I've completed a charcoal drawing of their "poster horse", Grace. You'll be able to read more about the organization and Grace on their website, though its under construction presently. I'm humbled and please to be part of such a worthy cause.
Once they have their website up and running I'll post a link. I'm sure the more awareness created for the plight of these horses the better. And better yet, contributions to the ongoing care for these wonderful companion animals would be appreciated.
