July Fair Trade show bookmarks in progress

Here I sit at 12:27 in the morning whining over the fact that I forgot to pick up some more coffee creamer so I decided that I should keep folks updated on one of the projects that I have going on. After a couple of times of providing work to a few shows, it would seem that I am one of the artists for a Sacramento based Human Trafficking Awareness group called the Sacramento Rescue & Restore Victims of Human Trafficking. Having been asked to participate again and provide work for a show in July which is to bring attention to fair trade, I ended up wracking my brain for a good while trying to figure out what the hell to do. Of course it didn't help that I was trying to come up with something after having done a piece for my entry into this year's KVIE Art Auction.

After staring at a blank piece of paper for nearly a week, I finally made my decision and started working on the rough draft designs for a set of bookmarks which can be purchased at the show. The designs are based on previous shows we have had already or dealing with one of the subject matters which we try to bring attention to. Final designs will be done in full color.
From left to right:
Birdcaged Lotus - based off of the child prostitution awareness show
Spring Child - based off of child labor awareness
Cups of Coffee - based off of the coffee and chocolate show
Paper Crane - awareness to those who were lost

I'll be posting the final result once I'm done with the finalized designs and such along with all of the show information if anyone is interested in going to the show.
