Vulture illustration for Artwork for Aves annual fundraiser
Posted 6 months ago and submitted by Melissa Washburn | Share link:

Last year I was invited to participate in Artwork for Aves, an online raffle organized to raise money for bird conservation nonprofits. This year’s fundraiser is benefiting Vulpro, an organization dedicated to the conservation of African vultures. I created this African white backed vulture using Procreate for the iPad and Photoshop. The raffle will take place later this summer, with many fantastic artists and illustrators contributing work.

I had the pleasure of commissioning Melissa to create a fundraising illustration for dragonfly conservation. Melissa not only delivered a captivating image, on deadline, she also went above and beyond by hand-coloring each and every one of her prints. Melissa is a talented professional who understands the big impact of small details and going the extra mile. I wholeheartedly endorse Melissa as an illustrator, a professional, and a genuinely nice person.
