Thanks to Tom Richmond for the heads up on this. The National Cartoonists Society has banded together to support one of its own – Tim Hodge. Tim’s son Matthew was in an auto accident five months ago and has since been in a coma. As with most of us, we can handle short term illness but the financial toll of long term care is very harsh.
So they set up a website HELP THE HODGES and have gathered some great things to auction off on ebay to support the Hodges. The auction includes some great looking items including:
- All the pencil drawings for an entire Cinderella children’s book story (70 pieces of art)
- Space Ace poster signed by Don Bluth
- Dragon’s Lair poster signed by Don Bluth
- Princess & the Frog poster signed by animators, directors, producer and John Lasseter
- Charles Schulz drawing
- Original Mutts comic strip art
- Original Zits comic strip art
- Original Nancy comic strip art
- Original Baby Blues comic strip art
- Dumbo comic strip art
- Paul Coker, Jr. Frosty the Snowman
- Ren & Stimpy painting signed by Rosie O’Donnell
- Group drawing by 21 famous cartoonists
- Rocketeer artist proof sculpture
Check out auction and bid if you can.
Man Bearman – you always find the best stuff to share … must be that bear nose of yours! 🙂
I can’t clean the cat litter without a gag on my nose b/c the smell is so bad.
Nice to see the community pulling together is support of their own. You have your eye on anything Bearman?
Frosty. Wait..are you going to upbid me now that I told you. Damn.
The cuddly underbelly of the Bearman exposed once again 🙂
I’m such a good bear.
At times like this, after finding a few to donate to Haiti, being broke and laid off sucks. Love the cause. Nice to know you ain’t hibernating 🙂
True true. Maybe someone with deep pockets will hear the message though.
Hope this goes well.
