Original Artwork

                                                            Original Artwork - Sketch for Survival Campaign
Our Sketch for Survival campaign was based on the idea of asking artists for a simple 15 minute sketch of an endangered animal to show their support for conservation without impinging on their time or livelihood. Many have chosen to donate original artwork instead to help raise as much money as possible for conservation.

Profits with split evenly between The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) and Animals saving Animals (ASA) unless otherwise marked on the individual lots. Please support them and our charities by bidding generously.
