The 100 Project

July 27th 2011

What started as a 24-hour ‘Hack Day’ project at my agency, Poke, has turned into legitimate charity fundraising website – meet The 100 Project.

The idea’s simple: 52 artists have donated an artwork, one of which will be auctioned off each week for a year with a starting price of £100. For every artwork that sells, a child is sponsored to complete a term at the Prince’s Drawing School in East London. Lovely, non?

The project launched last night with a packed exhibition of all the works in our reception space. The first piece, which happens to be by one of my favourite artists, Si Scott, is on sale right now, so check it out and have a bid. I’ve shared some of my other upcoming favourite pieces below. Which would you bid for?

Si Scott

Mr Bingo

    What a great idea! I think the butterfly is my favourite, simple and beautiful.
