Sakais Auctuion Update

Artwork is rolling in for the HELP STAN SAKAI AUCTION. This photo is just some of the amazing stuff that's showed up at the studio these past few weeks. The exact auction start date hasn't been nailed down yet but if you're looking for a time frame, try and have your stuff in by the beginning of February, 2014. There's no solid deadline though-- the costs are ongoing, so this fundraising effort will also be ongoing.

Also, if you have no art to donate, the paypal donation page is back up and running. Thanks for your patience. If you were able to donate before the paypal glitch, Stan and Sharon have received that money. If you've been waiting to give-- here's your chance.

Thanks so much for checking in. Happy holidays.

For nearly 30 years, Stan Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo has set a high-water mark for creator-owned comics.
Stan’s wife, Sharon, has battled a debilitating illness for some time; after an extended hospital stay and convalescence, she is now back home, but her condition requires 24-hour care and medicines that cost more than their insurance covers. 

If you'd like yo help now-- You can contribute money to help Stan and Sharon here. 

UPDATE! The Paypal link is up and working. CAPS had some tax paperwork to take care of and now it's all handled. If you've already given money-- Stan & Sharon have it. If you weren't able to before because the paypal was down, thanks for checking back in!

CAPS, the Cartoon Art Professional Society, has decided to provide whatever assistance we can, starting with an ongoing auction of original art. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to Stan & Sharon to help pay their ongoing medical expenses. 

Creators and publishers, We are asking for your help; please contribute original artwork to this worthy cause. 
Print off this form... 
and Send us your original art donation or product so that we can include it in our auction. Many, many THANKS!! 

Bloggers, tumblers and tweeters, please spread the word. Feel free to re-post this wherever you think is appropriate.

Join us and EVERY Comic artist you ever loved... ever. Seriously. This show has the coolest Guest list of any smaller show. It's crazy. Just look for yourself. We'll be at AA56, 57 & 58. Come say hi and/or buy some stuff.

Speaking of Mr. Johnson, I figured we'd make it official. Drew's joined us oficially at Garage Art Studios. Just look up and to the right.  Oficially!

Drew's been making awesome comics for years and years. You've seen him on Wonder Woman and Supergirl. Believe me when I tell you, you haven't seen anything yet. Drew's art is kicking serious ass lately.  

So anyway, welcome Drew. 

That's it for now. Hopefully we'll have more G.A.S. news soon.
