Friday Lart – Where The Wild Themes Are
Fridays, we open the Larchives, Lar’s extensive archive of art work oddities, and share a few pieces.
Unless you’re new (and if you’re new, welcome!), you know that this time every year, Lar and his wife Christie raise money for the MS Society. They’ve been fundraising for forever, usually bringing in over $10 000.
If you aren’t the type to just give to a good cause (and if you aren’t, welcome!), then good news! Lar doesn’t expect you to donate out of the goodness of your heart. He’s willing to trade you in time and talent. You can get an original Lar avatar in exchange for for your donation to the deSouza MS Society fundraiser.
From now until February 3rd, 2023, donate $50, plus $50 for every additional face in the picture, to the MS Society and Lar will make you a caricature avatar in the style of your choice.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Go here.
- Donate $50 or more for an avatar, plus $50 for every extra face.
- Email your donation confirmation to [email protected] along with a current selfie and any requests, including what theme you’d like.
- Lar will email you a high res JPEG to print and a low res jpeg for social media.
Every month during the fundraiser, Lar picks a theme for his custom avatars. For January 2023, the theme is in the style of Maurice Sendak’s Where The Wild Things Are.
And now, let the fundraising rumpus start!
