Dumbarton-born Stewart Sweeney tells us that his wife, Loine, both pictured here, has gone moderately viral (520 likes and shares and counting) with this little sketch submitted to Wildlife Rescue Collective in Australia. Please acknowledge if sharing. Discussions underway about the t-shirt. Anyone who wants to find out more about this project which will help Aussie bushfire victims should message Loine on Facebook. It’s a terrific design. Well done that girl. The Sweeneys live in Adelaide.
Loïne Sweeney, who was a TV reporter, told The Democrat: “Numerous responders on the page said they wanted to buy something featuring the image and suggested it be used as a fundraiser for critical wildlife projects (eg restoring decimated habitat and natural food sources). They listed all sorts of product ideas.
“One even detailed the design of a quite beautiful sounding quilt, complete with full colour scheme. And, much to my surprise, another suggested auctioning off my humble little drawing to the highest bidder. I’m sure it’s the underlying message and concept of the footprints rather than the quality of the art that has struck a chord. So for the sake of wildlife in dire need, I am indeed following through to see if an appropriate organisation is interested so I can hand it over to them.”
