Live illustration at Kai-Fella launch

I was invited to paint at The Towers at Elizabeth Quay penthouse suite to launch Kai-Fella.
Intelligent, handsome, athletic, and popular, Kai Eardley had everything going for him. However in July 2016, at 20 years of age, he took his life by suicide after struggling with anxiety and depression.
He left behind his devastated family who established the Kai Eardley Foundation to bring focus to mental health issues amongst Western Australia’s young men to try to help reduce the horrific and escalating number who resort to suicide.
Far East Consortium’s WA State Manager Dan Sweet is on the KEF Board, and he and Kai’s mother Claire Eardley, decided to stage an event to reach the corporate sector, raise funds and announce the Foundation’s name change to Kai-Fella. Trilogy Advertising and Marketing, David Gardiner PR, and Programmed volunteered to help.
This event was held on October 30th in Far East Consortium’s Penthouses of The Towers at Elizabeth Quay, attended by 230 people and resulting in almost $30,000 being raised.
