Story

Several years ago, my sister Satsy was diagnosed with MS. She lives so far away that I have been unable to support her as much as I would like to. I'm not athletic, and I'm too fond of my hair to shave it all off, but I can draw!

Last October I set myself a personal challenge to draw 31 videogame monsters in 31 days, which I dubbed "Nintober". I managed it, but I described it as my Everest. I was planning on doing it again this year, when I realised that if I'm going to climb my Everest again, I should do it for a good cause!

My sister, who is also a fantastic artist when she's having a good day, is one of the most important people in my life. I'd like to raise money for this charity to hopefully bring us a little closer to bringing an end to this debilitating illness.

Anything you can give is appreciated. And if you can't give, please share this project around! Either at deviantArt or Tumblr.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Today is the final day of Nintober. 31 monsters drawn in 31 days. And look at all those donations! Amazing stuff! Thanks to everyone for the support, both for me and my cause. There will be a bonus monster after a mini-competition. Happy Halloween!
