The lovely wife of our friend, GeekLife‘s Bob Boyle, has put together a charity art auction including names that will be familiar to many of you. Art from My Little Pony, PowerPuff Girls, Spongebob, Yogi Bear, The Flintstones, Ren and Stimpy, Dilbert, even Phineas and Ferb. And… Mo Willems!
The auction opens in Los Angeles, California, tonight, Thursday, but there will also be an online auction on eBay starting on Friday night for those of us who aren’t close enough to attend in person. Check out the preview for the auction on the website!
A charity art auction needs a good cause, and this is a very good cause. Storyboard artist Joey Adams and his family are in need of help. To quote the website:
To be brief, he nearly lost his twin boys over the Christmas holidays, due to a possible genetic illness. Two years ago, he and his wife Ginger, lost their daughter, under similar circumstances. The boys survived, but baby Ian is currently undergoing grueling chemo, while undergoing extensive genetic testing. He will need a bone marrow transplant, and his brother Henry may need one as well.
You can get more information on their more personal website. Please bid generously! If you have the winning bid for any of the pieces of art, come back and tell us in the comments what you bought.
