Welcome to the webpage of #drawforyourmind. An art auction of books, prints and original work, donated by incredibly talented children’s illustrators, all in aid of raising money and awareness for the Mental Health charity, Mind.

My name is Charlotte Cooke, I’m a children’s illustrator, and a serial runner!

This April, I have taken on the task of running the Brighton AND (2 weeks later) London marathons. I will be running and fundraising for Mind, and what better way to do it than by rallying a bunch of talented chums, and auction off some incredible artwork to raise as much cash as possible for the work Mind do, raising awareness for Mental Illness. I know first hand what it feels like to deal with a mental health issue, having battled anxiety and depression, and knowing many other who struggle daily too. For me, running is a window of opportunity – to silence my creative, overactive brain, and just be free for that moment in time. Here is an opportunity to support an extremely worthy charity, and get something pretty awesome in return.

THE AUCTION.

The auction will begin around 7pm on Thursday, 23rd February, and will run for 3 days, until Sunday 26th. You can access each artist’s auction, by following the links on their name, on our Illustrators page on this site (please note this will take you to one listing only, some artists have more than one listing) – you can also search ‘Draw for your mind’ in eBay, which will bring up all the items for you to see. PLEASE NOTE – YOU WILL ONLY FIND LINKS AFTER THE AUCTION IS LIVE!

Please may i encourage you to be generous. There are some real gems here, and i am so privileged and grateful to all the artists supporting this auction. So pop open your wallets and lets see how generous we can be!

100% raised from these auctions will go straight to Mind.

 

Good Luck!
