Get ‘Rich Enough to be Batman’, or raise money for Big Issue sellers trying

Australian artist Heath Kane is raffling off one of his artworks to help raise money for Big Issue vendors.

Big Issue readers are in with a chance of winning a unique portrait of the Queen – thanks to Australian artist Heath Kane.

Kane is raffling off Rich Enough to be Batman – a screenprint and acrylic artwork exploring the idea of extreme wealth – to raise money for The Big Issue Foundation, which works to support Big Issue vendors.

It follows the success of an auction held in May which saw pieces sell for hundreds.

This time around there’s a chance to bag one for a tenner by buying a raffle ticket. If you fail, at least your money is being put to good use.

Kane said: “The Big Issue’s work, not only in their campaigning to prevent homelessness, but also in their work to give people the means and skills to make permanent changes is something that really speaks to me.
