MCM last weekend was a great success, and between Jenny Clements, Jason Cardy and myself, Draw the World together managed to raise just shy of £700 (which we’ve rounded up!) Half of which will be going to EveryChild, and half to the St. George Foundation, who help war-orphans in Sierra Leone! This is a great total and it was a really fun weekend so many thank to everyone who came by, said hi, made a donation or got a sketch, and a great big thanks to Jenny Clements for lending us her drawing skills, and to the organisers of MCM Expo for having us! :)
Some of our favourite Draw the World Together artists have recently been involved with the production of an amazing new charity publication. The Spirit of Hope is a unique anthology of short stories from the world’s greatest creators dealing with the impact of disasters on people’s everyday lives. Creators include Mike Collins, Liam Sharp, Henry Flint, Nick Abadzis, Glenn Dakin, Mark Buckingham,Al Davison, Peter Hogan and Andrew Wildman with stories covering all aspects of human life in the face of catastrophe. The collection comes in two editions – one with a beautiful Jimmy Broxton cover (pictured) and a second with a cool Michael Allred cover. All profit from the title will go to help disaster victims via Second Harvest and the New Zealand Red Cross.
Copies of the book can be ordered and are £14.99 + £3.00 p&p. Anyone ordering should state their preference of cover, both can be seen on the CBA website where you can also place your order online.
This is a great book for a great cause. Give it your support if you can.
As you may have seen we recently had two auctions of sketches and sketch cards to raise money for our projects. Just starting is the third of the three promised auctions. This one is all TRANSFORMERS related material. We have Sketches, T Shirts, Baseball caps, Comics, Books and Toys (well, one toy). Some of the books and comics are real rarities as they are signed not only by Furman and Wildman but are also the only known copies also signed by Baskerville and Yomtov. A real comic collectors treat. Our toy is also an amazing piece. Donated by TFcon in Canada it is a limited edition model that should attract a lot of attention. All in all a feast of Transformers goodies not to be missed.
You can check out all the items here. There are two batches of items. Both are up for 10 days with some finishing in the morning of Sunday 28th November and some in the evening. Enjoy.
