Stan Sakai Benefit Auction
The Comics Art Professional Society (CAPS) has put together a benefit auction to help Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai and his wife, Sharon, pay medical bills accruing due to Sharon's current debilitating illness. The auction is ongoing with a changing offering of original artwork from a great roster of outstanding artists. My own piece (seen above) is currently in the auction, which can be seen here. Please take a look, and also see what else is being offered. If you can, please purchase a piece for this deserving couple.
There will also be a benefit book featuring a number of the pieces from the auction (including mine) which will be made available at this year's San Diego Comic Con. I will post about how to obtain a copy when that information becomes available.
Don't forget to keep checking the auction as more artwork will be added regularly. You can also help by purchasing Usagi Yojimbo books and other products via the links below.
