Attention artists and art lovers.. here is an event not to be missed! In a nut shell..
PencilNeck Productions is proud to introduce you to the TOY TO THE WORLD PROJECT, a biennial custom DIY toy competition that brings together up to 200 artists to unleash their creativity on 200 blank vinyl bears in order to create an exhibition and auction event that raises a couple of thousand of dollars to combat HIV through research and development!
Want to help out? Any donations towards making this event a success are much appreciated, no matter how small.. you can even be rewarded! Check out the fund raising page here.
How can you join in? The main event is happening in Melbourne, however, international artists are also welcome! Register as an artist here.
Not feeling creative but still want to join in? The main event will be held at Section8 in the Melbourne CBD (Australia) on Saturday November 17th 2012!! Watch the artists in action while kicking back with a drink and some mad tunes.. More info can be found here.
And finally, of course is the amazing auction! The final creations are auctioned off to the highest bidder with all money raised being donation to the Victorian AIDS council. Follow the above links for more info.
Below is my entry from 2010 which I named ‘Mutant Butterfly Bear’ for obvious reasons. I’m entering two bears this year and will post photos as I’m working on them. Suggestions as to what I could make them into are welcome!
Check out more of the amazing entries.. who knows what will be at this years auction? So many creative peeps!
