To celebrate my birthday this year, on the 11th of June I invited my friends and followers into my usual working day, whilst I revisited my old muses – Jägertingers! I aimed to design a number of new tinger characters throughout the day, then auction them off with 100% of the money raised going to charity.
What are ‘Tingers’? – Jägertingers are a fantasy animal species created by me around about eight years ago. With the support of my friends and fellow tingers community, the species grew into an inspiring creative network.
The stream spanned just over six hours, where over 70 different viewers attended from around the globe, raising $610 USD in the donation pool which was donated to Color of Change. The designs were then auctioned off over the weekend, raising £700.00GBP in total between them. This was equally split between four charitable causes – 70+ BLM split bail funds, BLM split racial justice funds, Beat, and Point of Pride.
The grand total of all money raised came to an amazing £1,184gbp/£1,492usd.
