UPDATE: Charity Art Auctions Around the ‘Net
Following up on yesterday’s post regarding industry-wide efforts to raise money for artist Gene Colan, Clifford Meth is putting together a massive, additional auction to benefit the creator and generate money for his rapidly growing medical bills.
So far, contributions have come in from (deeeeeep breath) Neal Adams, Norm Breyfogle, Randy Bowen, Ed Brubaker, Adam-Troy Castro, Paty Cockrum, Peter David, Rufus Dayglo, Tom DeFalco, J.M. deMatteis, Pat DiNizio, Harlan Ellison, Mark Evanier, Neil Gaiman, Sam Keith, Joe Kubert, Erik Larsen, Bob Layton, Jim Lee, Stan Lee, Leah Moore, Albert Moy, Michael Netzer, Josh Olsen, James A. Owen, Tom Palmer, Greg Pak, Mike Pascale, Jim Salicrup, Bob Shreck, Dave Simmons, Gail Simone, Walter and Louise Simonson, Jim Starlin, Roy Thomas, Juan Torres, Andrew Wildman, Marv Wolfman and Ash Wood. More will be coming in any minute, I’m sure — keep checking that link above.
Meanwhile, Gillian Anderson (a.k.a. Dana Scully from The X-Files) is raising funds for her neurofibromatosis charity by auctioning off “doodles” from celebrities like Scarlett Johansson, Simon, Pegg, Dom DeLuise, Ellen DeGeneres, and the Monkees; as well as comics folks like Tom Tomorrow, Garry Trudeau, Neil Gaiman, Sergio Aragones, Seth Green, and Bill Mumy. The full list is here.
Oh, and the Gahan Wilson drawing pictured here is for the second auction– though I suppose it could be a Dracula for Colan, couldn’t it?
