The Internet has changed the way most of us do things. We can now donate--for free--through a click of a button at home. How easy is that?

The Hunger Site The Breast Cancer Site

These six sites are interlinked. If you go to one site, you'll see at the top the links for the other sites via tabs. You can click and do your good deeds for the day in about five minutes.

Now imagine if everybody did that. Every day.

The Child Health Site The Rainforest Site

Please visit these sites and also link to them. Each site has a "Link to Us" section that can be found in the upper left menu. Or, copy this post or link to the post directly. You can also share this post through the Share widget at the bottom of my posts--spread the word through your social networks like Facebook, MySpace, etc. Use your voice!

The Literacy Site The Animal Rescue Site

You can find these links permanently installed in my blog on the menu to the right (scroll down). They will also be permanently installed on ivanchan.com's Links section.

Start your morning or Internet experience by clicking on these sites; make your favorite one your home page! Think of it as your Tibetan prayer wheel, spinning entire prayers through a touch of your hand (and the click of your mouse).

Invite Beauty,

I.

Portrait of a Hippo, giclee on paper, 8.5" x 11"
Open edition benefitting the World Wildlife Fund


AuctionBytes, "The Independent Trade Publication for Online Merchants," is an excellent resource and I highly recommend it for news and ideas. Recently, I found out they featured my story in their section, First Item Sold Online!

My first item is a long-time favorite, Portrait of a Hippo. I created it years ago when I was considering a career in science illustration, and it was the first time I had ever used scratchboard.

It's a medium I truly love, but due to studio limitations and health concerns (scratching into the fine clay of scratchboard creates a lot of clay dust--bad to breathe in), I decided not to pursue this medium until I had a better set up.

Regardless, it's used in illustration because it creates images that hold up well for reproduction. I've created an open edition print of Portrait of a Hippo (which also benefits the World Wildlife Fund) and a larger, limited edition print of it, too, not to mention a Little Beauties Art Card and variety of merchandise in my gift shop, Everyday Beauty. It's inspired interpretations that became my Hippo Series.

Portrait of a Hippo is a classic, and it being my first sale online, and created during a time when I first considered being an artist, holds a special place in my heart.

Many thanks to my first collector!

Invite Beauty,

I.

Holy Chicken, limited edition print (3)
Stretched canvas on giclee

I think chickens are beautiful. People make fun of the sacred cows of India but when you think about the cow and all that it gives of its body, why the heck would anybody in his or her right mind kill a cow and eat it? It's like breaking the neck of the goose that laid the golden eggs!

The above stretched canvas giclee, or high quality print, is reproduced from an Original Finger Painting I made for my friend Judy, who absolutely adores chickens. She practically starts speaking in tongues when she talks about chickens. I'm probably in danger of that, too, so I'll just let the picture above do the talking--or clucking. Enjoy!
