• Bushfire Charity Art Livestream On January 11-12th

    An armada of artists have teamed up for a big charity livestream to help raise funds to fight the massive bush fires wreaking havoc over in Australia right now. Over 28 people have signed up to take requests, do YCH auctions, and take commissions with proceeds going toward a host of different organizations.

    The actual link to the stream will be over on Twitter once everything is ready to go. We will get an update out here as well.

    No doubt you've heard the news by now, but Australia is burning.

    Currently fires are raging across the country, with the worst affected area in the south east requiring mass evacuations of towns. An area close to the size of Belgium has already been burnt, with the 1000 km-long (620 miles) active firefront expected to take a further two months to get under control. Smoke from the fires has been detected as far east as Chile, with major Australian cities reaching pollution levels many times above hazardous levels. The impact to wildlife is almost impossible to estimate, but will be devastating to the rich biodiversity Australia is known for. People have lost their homes and their livelihoods, with sadly at least 25 people dead from the fires. Simply put, this is the worst bushfire crisis to ever ravage this country.

    So, what can you do?

    We've been hard at work organising a 24 hour charity art livestream to help raise funds for the bushfire relief effort, with all funds raised going to the Australian Red Cross, the NSW Rural Fire Service and WIRES, an organisation helping injured wildlife. The stream will run from 12pm-12pm on the 11th-12th AEDT (7pm-7pm on the 10th-11th CST). We'd love for you to join in and donate to help out those who need it most! We've got a great line-up of both SFW and NSFW artists who will be taking requests from stream donations, YCH auctions and sketch commissions just to name a few:
