Deb’s Illustration March Arts Marathon

Participant: Deborah Sigel

Mission: I’ll be doing either a freeform small illustrations or working towards completing illustrations of one of the many children’s books I’ve started.

Our 2022 March Arts Marathon is a fundraiser to help CVRAN provide housing, living expenses, and legal fees for the six Asylum Seekers we are currently supporting in Central Vermont and for future asylum seekers. This year we are also providing assistance with housing, furniture, home goods, transportation, and job support to Afghan refugee families who are being resettled in Central Vermont. The March Arts Marathon is a community effort. Each day in March poets, writers, painters, photographers, fabric artists, collage and multimedia artists will each send a copy of their daily work to friends and family. And friends and family will donate to support this work. Together we will be helping to welcome new Americans who in turn will add immeasurably to our own communities.

Each day I’ll be working to complete a small illustration, or make progress on illustrating one of the kids books I’ve started (Freya’s Toolbox or Ella Cinderella). You’ll get a daily email of the illustration. Your feedback is welcome and encouraged. My goal is to support this cause while also getting some more practice in, using various art tools to do illustration.

Donors who sponsor me and contribute $25 or more to the cause will get a cleaned up digital copy of an illustration from this March Arts Marathon. Contributions of $50 or more will get to choose an physical illustration to keep. Contributions of $75 or more, will get to choose an illustration to be made in a larger, frameable format to keep.
