Art Auction for The National Autistic Society
Posted 3 years ago and submitted by Paul Loudon | Share link:

I am currently running an art auction on my Facebook page. As the title of this post suggests, it’s in aid of The National Autistic Society. I have always had an empathy for those with the condition; it speaks to my own social awkwardness and obsessiveness, although I cannot begin to comprehend a world with such aspects ramped up several notches. Nor can I understand the trauma suffered by parents and guardians of the afflicted.

Fortunately, some help is at hand in the form of a wonderful charity: The National Autistic Society.

Now on to the meat of the post. I am attempting to raise £500 by selling as many A4 sized artworks as it takes in order to reach that goal. The auction is currently in full swing and taking place on my Facebook page, bids are placed in the comments section. A drawing is auctioned for up to a week before being posted to the winner after he or she has donated the winning bid to my Just Giving page. Then a new piece immediately goes up for auction.

These are the pieces so far… (all sold apart from “Arnold as Conan” …poor Conan.)

Paul Loudon created approximately 90 artworks for me for a series of children’s reading books. The brief was to create a set of characters in a naturalistic style to complement a more graphic approach within the books. We were extremely happy with the work Paul carried out and how well he hit the marks of the brief. His approach was considered and sympathetic to the series style and age-appropriate. His work was well-timed and amends were carried out promptly. I would definitely work with Paul again.
