My contribution to the #3000chairs campaign. A campaign started by @thebooksniffer that was inspired by the book ‘The Day The War Came’ by @nicolakidsbooks which drew attention to the 3000 Syrian refugee children who were rejected by the UK government in 2016. // @helprefugeesuk @bigpicturebooks @foylesforbooks @rebecca_a_cobb #helprefugees #thedaythewarcame #emptychairsproject #justdoalittletohelpsomeone #3000 #chee(ai)rs

Κυθνιώτικες. #emptychairsproject #kythnos

The finished piece for #3000chairs. The deadline is on the 20th August so still time to participate, the auction event is raising money for @helprefugeesuk! None of this would be possible if not for the two ladies who started it all, illustrator @rebecca_a_cobb and the author of #thedaywarcame @nicolakidsbooks. Hopefully I am going to meet them on the 3rd September in London's @foylesforbooks where the auction will take place and of course you're all invited, so come along if you can! Big hug to my multitasking Insta friend @rebeccabrutontextiles whose commitment to everything is insanely contagious - hence my chair!!😅

Slow life. Μην κανεις τίποτα. Απλώς κάθισε. #emptychairsproject #kythnos

#3000chairs This is my very sad "empty chair"contribution to this years 3000 chairs campaign.The recent news regarding child refugees being separated from their families certainly struck a heartbreaking chord.Award winning author Nicola Davies set up the #3000chairs campaign in 2016 in response to their plight and the refusal to let 3000 unaccompanied children into the UK,sadly not much has changed and Nicola wants to bring this to the forefront of people's minds again,in association with Help Refugees she would like as many people as possible to donate a drawing or painting of an empty chair for a fund raising event in September.

Thanks to my talented Insta friend @rebeccabrutontextiles I have learned about this amazing project/auction event called #3000chairs which asks illustrators, artists, crafters etc to donate illustrations of chairs to @bigpicturebooks @thebooksniffer for an exhibition and auction to raise money for @helprefugeesuk. What they need are drawings of empty chairs in any medium, A4 or smaller! To be signed on the reverse only, it's going to be a silent auction so the bid goes on the artwork not on the name. The deadline for your possible entries is 20th August! The big event is on the 3rd September and free to attend in Foyles in London! So Londoners don't dwell on this too long, just show up!
My chair is a #wip and can't wait to share the final result with you guys!
If confused please do watch Rebecca's Insta story, it's full of useful information! Mine will follow shortly after I edit the stolen screenshots 😁 .
