Leading Illustrators’ Auction for Indigenous Literacy

As facilitator and roving reporter for the Brisbane One Word One Day (OWOD)  illustrator event held on 11 May at the ABC Studios (South Bank), SCBWI Qld author and blogger, Helen Ross, gives us an update on the auction details scheduled for 25 September 2012.

Earlier this year a host of Australia’s best known and highly acclaimed artists (ASA and non-ASA members) created art for ONE WORD ONE DAY to raise funds for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) to help disadvantaged kids in the remotest parts of Australia.

Artists had three hours to create a picture based on an inspirational word that the ASA released in the morning.

And there were many SCBWI Qld artists participating in the Brisbane OWOD event. What talent we have!  – Lucia Masciullo, Lynn Priestley, Angela Sunde,  Peter Taylor …

So now for the drum roll …..

The Australian Society of Authors, in partnership with the ABC and Micador will auction the 101 original artworks by these leading artists including Oscar-winning creator and illustrator Shaun Tan, Children’s Book Laureate Alison Lester and internationally recognised artist, Alison Jane Rice.
