Wild Postcard Gallery 2022

Wild Postcard Gallery, is an online gallery open to all ages to create and submit Biro (ballpoint pen) drawings of their favourite wild animals. Part of Drawing for the Planet Artist and Founder Jane Lee McCracken's Where Did All the Animals Go? (WDATAG?) art and environmental education project, in partnership with international wildlife charity Born Free, this gallery was launched by Jane in 2019 at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art here.  Find out how to submit your drawing below.

GALLERY COLLECTIONS

Since 2019 hundreds of wildlife drawings by children and adults have been created for the gallery with people from across the globe sending photographs of their drawings to be featured in the gallery. As the gallery has grown it can now be viewed in separate annual galleries. Scroll down this page to see all drawings created between 2019-2020.

GALLERY AIM

The aim of Wild Postcard Gallery is to spread the gift of drawing, using Jane's preferred medium, the humble Biro, and the beauty of wildlife far and wide, as well as nurturing emotional connections with vulnerable species to further help in their conservation: "if we care, we want to conserve". By making a drawing of a wild animal for this gallery and sharing it with friends and family or on social media, your drawing is not only helping to highlight the rich diversity of our planet's wildlife and the unique beauty of individual species but could encourage others to get involved in species conservation. 

Enjoy drawing and some creative ‘you-time’. The next time you pick up your Biro, think of the animal you drew and how the world is a better place for its existence. Remember, EVERYONE, CAN DRAW!" Jane Lee McCracken

HOW TO SUBMIT

The concept of the online Wild Postcard Gallery is simple and open to all ages:

  • Pick up a ballpoint pen (or pencil / paint if you don't have a ballpoint pen), get creative and draw your favourite wild animal on a blank postcard, piece of paper or drawing surface 

  • If you can't draw the animal in the wild use a found image as inspiration or draw from your imagination

  • Your drawing doesn't have to be photo-realistic, express yourself and enjoy drawing and being transported. We all have our own unique drawing styles which are all valid!

  • Watch Jane's video below for drawing tips and wildlife inspiration
  • Send an image or scan of your drawing, your name, town and country to jane@janeleemccracken.co.uk for your drawing to be featured

  • Send your drawing as a gift to someone special to brighten up their day or put it in your window for your neighbours to enjoy

  • Spread the word and ask others to pick up a pen and make a drawing of their favourite wild animal for the gallery

      OTHER THINGS TO DO:

      Here are some things you can do to help wildlife:

      • Research your favourite animal and how you can further help with its conservation

      • Check out Drawing for the Planet's 12 Ways You Can Help Wildlife here

      • Tell others about what you have learnt and how they can help wildlife

      • Check out Born Free Learn at Home Packs here

      THE DRAWINGS

      The gallery displays Biro drawings submitted by artists of all ages from age 5 months upwards, depicting a wide array of species, including those very much ingrained in the human psyche such as tigers and elephants alongside lesser-known species such as the Spiderman agama lizard and the critically endangered Kakapo. 

      To date, more than 120,000 species have been assessed for The IUCN Red List and more than 32,000 of these species are considered to be threatened with extinction – 27% of assessed species. IUCN Red List

      The IUCN (International Union for Conservation) Red List categories below are included in the titles of each drawing. Check out threatened species at iucnredlist.org 

       

      Jane and the Drawing for the Planet Team would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has contributed to Wild Postcard Gallery and subsequently Where Did All the Animals Go? project.

      If you would like to help the species you have drawn, many conservation organisations have adoption schemes including Drawing for the Planet partners Born Free.

      WHERE DID ALL THE ANIMALS GO? CELEBRATION WORKSHOP, GREAT NORTH MUSEUM: HANCOCK
      19 April 2022

      After 2.5 years in creation, Jane finally completed the Where did all the Animals Go? (WDATAG?) exhibition in March 2022, after delays due to COVID. 100 drawings by Malaysian children were added to the exhibition. There are now 700 global schoolchildren’s wildlife drawings on permanent display at Great North Museum: Hancock, UK. The WDATAG? art and environmental education project was founded by Jane in 2019, in partnership with Born Free international wildlife charity, to give children, communities and wildlife a voice. To celebrate completing the exhibition Drawing for the Planet donated a free workshop with Jane to the museum, where visitors had the opportunity to draw Malaysian species as well as other global wildlife.

      UK AND UKRAINE WILDLIFE WORKSHOP: BELSAY PRIMARY SCHOOL, NORTHUMBERLAND
      22 March 2022

       

       

       

       

      These drawings were made by Years 3 and 4 during Jane's workshop to celebrate iconic species of Ukraine and the UK. Ukraine is rich in wildlife and there are some endangered species, like the Zubowski's Plump Bush Cricket that are only found in Ukraine, as well as species that inhabit both countries such as the Wild Cat and Red Squirrel. We hope that these amazing drawings make people smile.
