I also contributed some work for these eBay auctions that Rina Ayuyang is running, the proceeds of which are being donated to the American Red Cross for Typhoon Haiyan relief. There’s some incredible work up for auction from a pretty wide range of creators.
My lot is a stack of comics, zines and anthologies from the past few years. A lot of these comics are out of print and some of them were only printed in editions of 50 or 100. Included are:
Lose #1, 2, 3, 4
kus # 7, 12 (anthology)
Cold Heat Special #7
Loose #2, 4 (sketchbook zine)
Famous Walls (silkscreen zine – from 2008 or 2009)
Gags (xerox zine from 2008 or 2009)
Open Country #1, 2 (serial that I abandoned midway through, destroyed all the artwork for and then threw away all the unsold copies of, except for these two)
Drawing Restraint catalogue (gallery catalogue from a show I participated in while I was in high school – featuring work from Shary Boyle, Royal Art Lodge, Pablo Pudlat, others)
Horrible #1 (Zach Worton, Patrick Kyle, Chris Kuzma and Michael DeForge)
I’m also including a finished sketchbook I drew in over the course of a few months. I’ll rip out all the embarrassing pages before I send it. I normally throw my sketchbooks out, so here is rare a chance to own one in all its food-stained glory.
I’ve seen a few people on eBay try to sell a few of the comics in this lot for much higher than any of them are worth – I’d much prefer you bid on an auction like this, which is going to a cause that’s important to me, than to hand over your money to some other creep. So yeah, bid here.
I also have two pieces up for sale at my friend Krystle’s Sari Sari for Yolanda event this Saturday. Each drawing is 8.5×11. The event runs 5 – 10 pm at the Drake Hotel.
I don’t generally like putting up original art up for sale, but I get questions about it from time to time – this auction and the Sari Sari event will be one of the few opportunities to buy any of that sort of thing from me.
