Sidewalk hippocampus by VioWolf Sidewalk hippocampus by VioWolf
This is the work we did for The Utah Foster Care Foundation, its a pretty awesome event where artist from all over come to draw on the side walk to help raise money for kids in foster care/ fostered. Me and my sis (Shini-akuji on deviant) and my bro (TetsuIronWolf also on deviant) worked on it!
This wasn't a silent auction, i'm not sure why it says that on the catagory, pretty much people can pay to sponser the square you work in and all that money goes to Foster Care.

I love what you named it! It's perfect for it! It covers the Greek translation and the spatial trickery artists use to give a sense of being closer or farther from something, trying our best to fool the Hippocampus in the viewer's brain! Great work and an awesome choice for a name! :)

Thanx :D Most of the kids thought it was a dragon-unicorn, but at least they liked it :)I see what you mean about the pic, it was by accident though, it was the only way to get the whole thing in one picture :D :hug:

Still cool looking accident or not. I think it's great you did a charity event! I volunteer at a local domestic violence shelter every week. If more people would take the time to do stuff like this the world would be a better place!

that's awesome! I think that would be a very hard place to volunteer with, specialy when you think that most of those people will leave there and go right back into the same situation :(

Yes, unfortunately. I volunteer to watch children so that Mom's can attend group therapy sessions. There is one little girl that NEVER speaks, always withdrawn, and it breaks my heart. She only nods, even when spoken to by family. She is capable of speaking physically, but refuses to speak. For a 5yr old to act like that is...well, like I said before, heartbreaking. But there are moments that I wouldn't trade for the world. I often get staff to open up a room in the back where the kids can paint. I've had 13 little girls in that tiny room with one table before, we were crammed in like sardines. None of them were above the age of 7 and most were 5yr olds, and most of them didn't speak English either. I was WHOOPED when I got home but it was a good kind of tired. A very satisfying kind of tired. :)

That's so sad :( but thats awesome that you could give them a good day, I can't imagine those kids have an easy home life.
