This is an ATC, an Artist's Trading Card. Unlike an ACEO (Art Cards Editions and Originals), it is not for sale. However, it is up for a Mini-Raffle on Facebook at Skip Portrait by Robert A. Sloan Raffle Benefits Big Cat Rescue, an Event page that's currently ongoing. All you need to do for a chance to win the Mini-Raffle is enter the big portrait raffle by donating $10 or more to Big Cat Rescue on the link provided at the event.

That's right. I'm not handling the money. When the painting is done and our special guest pulls a name out of the hat to complete the raffle, an 8" x 10" acrylic portrait of Skip the Bobcat on an archival cradled Ampersand Pastelbord will go to the lucky winner. Each $10 of donation gets your name in the hat another time, one donor has her name in five times already!

I chose the cradled board for the big portrait in case someone really wants it so that any framing costs could be donated to Big Cat Rescue instead. It will arrive ready to hang at my expense by USPS Priority Mail within the USA and some form of reasonable international shipping if you're not in the USA. So it doesn't matter where you live.

Once you're a Donor, comment to the Mini-Raffle thread on the Event page to say "I'd like the little ATC." I will be closing that thread in a day or so, counting up the comments and rolling dice for who gets lucky and gets a small envelope with Mini-Skip in an archival protective soft sleeve and Top Loader. This mini-raffle is just a bonus that does not change your chances of winning the big Skip portrait.

Donations so far have reached a wonderful $460! Far more than I could've sent BCR in cash! I am so thrilled and grateful - y'all are keeping our Skip and the hundred-plus other big cats at BCR well fed!
