Posters to Help Iowa Flood Victims

Ted Wright recently gave an illustration demo at Washington University in St. Louis. The result of the demo was two variations of a new image titled "Cockadoodledoo... The Mighty Flood in Waterloo." Ted created the piece out of concern for the recent flood damage to friend and colleague Gary Kelley's hometown of Waterloo, Iowa.

Putting the finishing touches on the images, Ted had the idea to use the art as a fundraiser for families living in the flood affected farm communities of Iowa.

Buyers can choose from two versions of the 17"x36" image, shown below. Each poster is $30.00 and can be ordered by emailing tedw@AvalaMarketing.com. All proceeds go to the Iowa Red Cross.

For those who expressed concern, Gary Kelley's second floor studio remained unaffected by the floods in Cedar Falls. The tight knit community rallied together to protect the historic downtown and managed to save it, and Gary's studio as a result, from certain disaster. We shudder to think of what would have been lost if not for the determined citizens of Cedar Falls.
