Our second round of Awkward Pet Portraits was
Our artists are finishing up their portraits
and we should have everyone’s back to them soon!
Originals × Shipping
We’ll be working with the artists to get originals to the shelter and plan to start shipping them out November 25.
If you order an original that was by a digital artist, we’ll get it printed on nice paper and sent off to you.
NOTE: You cannot order only an original. You must order a digital ($20) in order to add on the original to your order ($30).
That means only use this “order original” form if you’ve already received your digital art.
Orders placed for originals WITHOUT a digital order will be refunded (and cancelled).
Let us know if you have questions. 🙂
June 2020 Event
Q: Can I submit a photo of a human for you to awkwardly draw?
A: No. This fundraiser is strictly for pet/animal photos.
Q: Can I gift a drawing to someone?
A: Absolutely! Just leave us a note on the form and we’ll get you all situated.
Q: Where can I see the artwork from the previous event?
A: We’re so glad you asked! You can view that artwork by clicking here.
Q: I wanted a super awkward drawing like some of the examples, but I got one that is actually amazingly good!!
A: 1) That’s not a question. 2) No takesy backsies!
Q: Can I request a specific artist?
A: Not unless that artist lets us know to expect the request. All artists assignments are otherwise random.
What are you talking about?
For our 18th birthday back in June 2020, we ran a single-day artwork fundraiser. Folx donated $20, sent us a photo of their pet, and we had a volunteer artist draw (awkwardly) the submitted pet photo.
Apparently The People of the Internet like awkward, and we were super surprised by the outpouring of support. It was a LOT of work. For this second round, instead of a sprint, we decided to run a marathon by extending the event November 9-22.
Thank you to everyone who donated for a portrait AND to our crew of incredible volunteer artists who made this possible!
If you missed out on this round, don’t worry — we’re SURE to do this again!
