20th Annual Dinner Auction for Clear View School
Quick heads up for those who collect comic art--I just donated a piece of art to benefit the Clear View School in Briarcliff Manor, NY. The image is pen and ink with wash and whiteout on 11x14 artboard.
Proceeds go to benefit the school which was incidentally co-founded by the late, great Harvey Kurtzman and his wife, Adele. This year, they are honoring Adele for her continued support and good work at the school, which by the way is a day treatment center for autistic and multiply disabled children. They can use every dollar we can offer so please check it out.
Below is the address; the auction starts at 6pm EST this Saturday and the charity dinner runs $100 but I do believe you can call in with a bid in advance or perhaps even during the event. I am not 100% sure but the contact person to call who can you give the info is Anna Hlotyak at 914-941-4653.
Just to make it more interesting...if the winning bid is from a regular poster here on the Metti (yes, we do keep track of who's who), I will throw in another free headshot of a character of your choice. It may take a long time for me to get to it, but I do have a list and you will get it...
So call in with your bids and inquire about other art that is being auctioned off. Apparently, there are a number of high profile names who have contributed such as Frank Miller and Terry Gilliam and Jack Davis. It's all for a great cause.
