Charity fundraising: Win yourself a beautiful illustration by a budding illustrator

posted in: Kasia Matyjaszek | 4

Kasia Matyjaszek is an Edinburgh based illustrator whose work I like so much I’ve got some on my own walls.

She’s currently raising funds to enable her to spend the month of August in Accra, Ghana with the Akosia, a charity which runs creativity-focussed projects in Mexico, Mongolia and Ghana, for street and working children

To help with this I’m hosting an auction for this print of hers:

Kasia's print which is up for auction.
Kasia’s print which is up for auction.

The print is A4, limited to an edition of 50, and signed by Kasia.

To bid for this print, simply leave a comment below with the amount you’re bidding (in £, though bidding is open worldwide).

You pay no money, unless you WIN the auction. You pay either via the donate button on Kasia’s fundraising website or via paypal – but that can be discussed later.

The bids open at £10 – and you can bid by leaving a comment below. The auction closes on 20 June 2013 (at 8am UK time) and the highest bidder will get the print. (Kasia will post the print to the winner, anywhere in the world).

More about Kasia:

Formerly an architect, Kasia now prefers to draw buildings rather than design them. She graduated with with a Masters degree in illustration from Edinburgh College of Art in 20; a picture book she created for her final degree show was highly commended in the Macmillan Book Prize.

Since then she’s been working on various illustration and picture book projects and also exhibiting her work in several galleries in Scotland. Recent children’s book projects include Black Beauty, illustrated for Ladybird Books, published in July 2012.

She is currently an Artist in Residence at Edinburgh College of Art.

Disclosure: Kasia is travelling to Ghana with my sister. They’ve both been fundraising to enable their trip. If beautiful fibre art jewellery is more your thing, then take a look at Kate’s work – you can support their trip to Ghana by choosing yourself something lovely!

    I LOVE her work! I can bid 15, though I expect that the prints will go for far more. I think the project is wonderful.



    I’m not going to bid because I don’t want to be heart-broken, HOWEVER! I’m glad and grateful to learn about Kasia’s work. It’s always a gift to be introduced to brilliant creatives. thank-you!
