Well some truly wonderful news to announce. A completely unexpected event has happened with regards to my artwork that went to benefit Stan Sakai. It raised $338!!! A true miracle. Never in a million, zillion years would I have thought my art could generate so much for them...I am shocked, honored, and overwhelmed. But most of all THANKFUL to those that had the faith and appreciation to bid, so high, for my art. I hope that one day I will be worthy of your faith in my work...thank you. There was no way we could have financially helped the Sakai's, so thank you...you did more to help them than I could have ever been able to do. My family, and I'm sure his as well, appreciate your contribution.
I am so happy. Stan took the time to thank personally on my FB page (that meants a lot to me) :woot: and in addition the incredibly talented Bill Morrison (Simpson's and Futurama) was really kind And 1) liked my art holy crap!! and 2) inform me that I made it into the tribute book as well!!! What the F!!! I am in the up coming tribute book for Stan with all the great artists I both admire and work I look at all the time to help me draw!
Seriously, this is the 2nd greatest honor of my life. First marriage to my wife, Melsie. Being in this book Is certainly #2. A book that helps someone and it is someone I both admire and respect. A book in which the greatest and most skilled artists of the industry have contributed to. I feel far out of place people.
But I am in print...and pick up a copy to see myself and all the truly great artists. ALL PROFITS go to help Stan and Sharon. Awesome gesture Dark Horse Comics, yet another reason I love that company.
Its out next month. www.darkhorse.com/Blog/1581/da….
I'll post when and where to order...no idea yet.
Well thank you all for your support. HONESTLY, without all of you giving me faves and support which gave me the confidence to keep at my art. So I thank all too!
Still in shock...
