Excellent! Mark Dos Santos is the latest artist to join our Second Annual SDCC Autograph Card/CBLDF Auction event! The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is dedicated to fighting for the First Amendment rights of the comics community. Dos Santos will donate an original sketch to the CBLDF’s auction at SDCC this year, and we will be turning his artwork into special limited-edition autograph cards that we’ll be giving out for free!
Dos Santos has worked on a wide range of comics, from Eureka, based on the cult-hit television show, to the Fall of Cthulhu series and Grimm Fairy Tales. His latest book is MGM Drive In Theater from IDW Publishing.
We want to offer our heartfelt thanks to Dos Santos and all of our other participating publishers and creators! Remember, we’ll be giving away free autograph cards of all of the sketches we receive, so stop by the TFAW booth and the booths of our participants at Comic-Con in San Diego to get yours!
Fine artist Steve Seeley will contribute art to our Second Annual SDCC Autograph Card/CBLDF Auction event! Seeley will create an original sketch for this very special event. Not only will his piece be donated to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund’s auction at San Diego Comic-Con, but you’ll be able to get your own copy, for free! We will turn all of our donated sketches into limited-edition autograph cards that you can collect at SDCC this year.
Seeley specializes in gorgeous acrylic paintings that fuse natural settings and creatures with elements of fantasy, comics (of course), and modern pop culture.
We want to thank all of the various publishers and creators who have joined our cause this year to fight for the First Amendment rights of the comics community. Remember, we will be creating limited-edition autograph cards of all of the sketches we receive, which we will be handing out for free at SDCC. Make sure to visit the TFAW booth and the booths of our participants at Comic-Con in San Diego to get yours!
It’s time to play the music! It’s time to light the lights! Muppet Show artist Amy Mebberson has signed on to our Second Annual SDCC Autograph Card/CBLDF Auction event. Last year, TFAW helped the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, an organization that supports the First Amendment rights of the comics community, raise more than $30,000 at their San Diego Comic-Con Auction. This year, we’re fortunate to again receive the support of a wide range of publishers and creators for this important cause.
Mebberson has illustrated a wide range of comics for publisher Boom! Studios, including Muppet Sherlock Holmes, Muppet Peter Pan, Muppet Snow White, Finding Nemo, Monsters, Inc., and many more.
We will be taking Mebberson’s sketch, as well as all of the other sketches we receive for this event, and creating limited-edition autograph cards exclusively for San Diego Comic-Con! Even better, they’re free to collect–make sure to visit the booths of all of our participants, as well as the TFAW booth, to collect them all.
