Inspiration: Art Auction for FrogPantson December 7, 2011 at 12:25 pm
Last week I heard about a fantastic show of kindness from an online community. Scott Johnson from the FrogPants network asked The Tadpool (The group of people that follow his numerous podcasts.) for a little help. Scott’s sister Wendi is pregnant and due in the next few weeks. Unfortunately there is a complication that will make the delivery abnormal. There is no serious danger to Wendi or the baby, but the procedure is really expensive. Scott is constantly creating and giving to those of us that follow the giant wake of work he publishes online. He asked if those capable would make a small donation so that he can surprise his sister with a check over the holidays to help out with the financial burden of the delivery. Within a week he reported how incredibly thankful and grateful he was for the wonderful support from his fans.
And it’s not over yet!
I have been following the FrogPants network for quite some time. Heck, I even co-host Comics Coast to Coast which is part of the FrogPants lineup of shows. I thought this was a good opportunity to use my imagination and my pen to raise some money for Wendi and give back to the awesome community that I have been a part of for the last year or so.
These two original one of a kind watercolors are posted individually on eBay. (Click the images!) Both pieces are drawn in archival black ink and painted in watercolor on Strathmore 400 Series watercolor paper. They’re both 8.5 x 5.5 inches. You could take home your very own holiday alien and help out Wendi in the process!
So, go forth and bid!
If you’re an cartoonist, illustrator or visual artist of any sort, make something for charity this holiday season! Or, any time of year where your artwork could do some good!
