I'm working on a non-profit project to raise money for the American Cancer Society. I call it "Comic Book Covers For Cancer" (#CBC4C), and I'm looking for artists to help me with this project.
The idea stems from a project that The Hero Initiative ran in 2013 with artist covers for The Walking Dead #100.
As you can see from the website, many of these covers raised considerable money. I'm working a variety of great artists to raise money for cancer research. This will also help to promote each artist's name and work. From July 2013 to July 2016, we've managed to raise over $4,800 for cancer research.
Each artists would donate their work on some various blank cover comic books that I or the artist will provide. In turn, I will auction off each completed comic book with the proceeds going to the ACS. With each comic sold, I will include artist information and a certificate of authenticity.
Obviously, I'm looking for artists who are interested in working with comics and my hope is that we can raise some money for research and promote every artist that helps.
I have a solid background in comic books and online auctions on eBay. My eBay seller ID is CBC4C, and you are more than welcome to check out my feedback. All our auctions are connected to eBay's Giving Works, and 85% of the final bids go directly to ACS where the 15% go to pay for the eBay and PayPal fees.
The funding I raise through GoFundMe will help with inventory, supplies, pay for shipping of blank cover comics to artists that aren't local, and purchase work from artists who can't afford to donate their work.
Another method people can chose to donate to help CBC4C is through our PayPal donation button.
If you are interested in supporting our cause, please go to our Facebook page, like us and send me a message through Facebook and I'll work to get you setup to support #CBC4C.
We currently have 23 artists working on this project, and the funding is beginning to dry-up. If you would like to donate directly, please go to my GoFundMe page: http://www.gofundme.com/3xwpio. Our first group of covers will be up for auction on October 12th. Updates will be posted on our Facebook page, so please like us to stay informed.ReplyDelete
