Portland, Oregon artist Sienna Morris is the latest addition to our Second Annual SDCC Autograph Card/CBLDF Auction event! Morris will create an original sketch, which she will donate to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund’s annual auction at San Diego Comic-Con this year! The CBLDF defends the First Amendment rights of the comics community, and we are thrilled that so many talented individuals are stepping up to take part in this important cause.
Morris creates a wide range of fantasy and portrait art, mainly in oils. Morris has also pioneered a technique called Numberism, in which her drawings are made up entirely of numbers.
We are thrilled with the amazingly varied collection of publishers and creators who have stepped up to support this great cause this year. As a thank-you, 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!
We’re happy to announce that Jay Anacleto has agreed to take part in our Second Annual SDCC Autograph Card/CBLDF Auction event! Anacleto will contribute an original black-and-white sketch to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, an organization dedicated to protecting the comics community’s First Amendment rights. His sketch will be auctioned off at the CBLDF’s auction in San Diego, along with all of the sketches from our distinguished group of participating publishers and creators.
Anacleto most recently worked on Marvels Eye of the Camera for Marvel Comics with Kurt Busiek. Marvels Eye of the Camera was a sequel to Busiek’s award-winning Marvels limited series and continued to examine the history of superheroes through the eyes (and camera) of photographer Phil Sheldon.
However, Anacleto’s sketch won’t just be available for auction–you’ll be able to get your own copy, as well as copies of all of our donated sketches, at San Diego Comic-Con this year! We will be creating limited-edition autograph cards that you can collect for free! Just visit the TFAW booth and the booths of our participants to get yours.
Wow! Girl Genius creators Kaja and Phil Foglio are the latest talented creators to join our Second Annual SDCC Autograph Card/CBLDF Auction event. They will be contributing an original sketch this year to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, which works to protect the First Amendment right of the comics community. This sketch will be auctioned off in San Diego, with 100% of the proceeds going to the CBLDF!
Last year, TFAW helped the CBLDF 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.
The Foglios are the creators of Girl Genius, a massively popular web comic (also available in printed collections) that famously features “Adventure, Romance, MAD SCIENCE!” It’s set in an alternate-history Victorian-style “steampunk” setting, also known as “gaslamp fantasy,” and has won Hugo, Eisner, Web Cartoonists’ Choice, and Squiddy Awards.
We will be taking all of the sketches we receive for this event, including Phil’s sketch, and creating free limited-edition autograph cards exclusively for San Diego Comic-Con. You can collect them by visiting the booths of all of our participants, as well as the TFAW booth!
