Breast Cancer Month!

October 13, 2010

It’s the 2nd Annual MarlaBea Benefit Auction, and this year I’ve come up with a plan to avoid my mother having the winning bid on my sketch! Even though I can’t be angry with her because it was for a good cause, I went ahead and did THREE images for the benefit. Now, don’t go thinking I’m Mr. Charity, cause I ain’t! I simply couldn’t make up my mind, and before I knew it I had done multiple versions of the same concept. Instead of picking one and then wasting the other two, I decided to give them all up for auction. I selected Scarlet from G.I.Joe as my subject (since no one knows me for anything else) and decided to interpret the theme of “power” to really mean “Fire-Power”!

The sketches are online at the MarlaBea, but the important place to go is the actual ebay page. There are some great images available, but for those who might just want to see what I did, here are the three I whipped up!

The first go!



This one is actually on gray paper


These are all around letter size, drawn in ink with marker washes. I hope everyone will consider bidding, after all it is a good cause. If you don’t like the super hero stuff , check out the other images available, there are a ton of cute cartoons and I’m sure there’s something that will strike your fancy.

Thanks to everyone in advance!

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.
