Breast Cancer Month

October 11, 2009

So as I’m sure most people have heard, October is breast cancer month. Now I could make some smart comment about saving breasts, but this isn’t the place for that.

A few months ago I got an email from a guy named Jason Gavin, who was asking comic artists to donate sketches for an ebay auction intended to raise money for breast cancer research. It turns out that his mother and his sister were diagnosed with breast cancer only a couple of months apart, so in honor of them he started the marlabeabenefit and this website. There’s a section on it with all the sketches that are being auctioned off on ebay thru his seller name “marlabeabenefit”. The auction begins on Monday, October 12th, and will last 7 days. Take a moment to see what’s available, and please consider bidding on something that takes your fancy. Remember it’s for charity and a great cause. As an incentive, below is the sketch of the Baroness (from GI Joe/Cobra) that I did for the auction.

UPDATE: the auction has started, so here’s a link to my sketch of the Baroness for anyone crazy enough to bid on it.
