As I mentioned in my previous post I was honored to be asked to create a few Wee Ones for a local fundraiser for Make-A-Wish of Colorado. It is a sports themed event (in very sports-crazy town) so, keeping copyright restrictions in mind, I decided to create my impressionistic versions of mascots for the Denver and Colorado Professional Sports Teams, as well as the four mascots for the major Denver and Colorado Universities.
So all done. And delivered. The Collegiate Wee Ones ( Rudy the Ram - CSU; Bob the Buffalo - CU; Reggie the red-tailed hawk - DU; and Brewster the Bear - UNC) and the Professional Wee Ones (Raquel the fierce cat - Denver Nuggets; Dinah Saur - Colorado Rockies; Bert - Colorado Avalanche; and Buckaroo - Denver Broncos) are now in the safe keeping of the wonderful Make-A-Wish volunteers. They will be auctioned off on February 2 at the "Sporting Affair Celebrity Waiter Dinner" at Denver's Four Seasons. Have a good life little guys!
But (as I stated previously also) why stop the love there? Stay tuned for more items featured in my Etsy shop ~ with 10% of each sale going to Make-A-Wish Foundation of Colorado.
