David Ilan (www.DavidIlan.com) works with some of the biggest names in entertainment. Over the past 10 years, David has worked on TV and movie sets, and in the homes of some of the most famous people in the world. Some of his portraits have been created to benefit charitable causes (e.g. American Cancer Society, Special Olympics of Southern California). People are inclined to follow celebrities as leaders; people who don’t typically support a particular charity care more when it is championed by a celebrity they admire. By auctioning celebrity portraits for charity, David has generated support for charitable causes. Some of the celebrities that have posed for David or have participated in his projects include Jerry Seinfeld, Dr. Maya Angelou, Scarlett Johansson, Danny DeVito and David Beckham, to name a few. Future Celebrity Artist projects will focus specifically on charities that are consistent with the mission of Drawing Hope.
