EDIT: the auction's ended. please see below. thank you so much to everyone who participated. 

if you're a comics fan (and if you're not i can't imagine why you're following this blog) you've probably heard by now that shortly before christmas Norm Breyfogle, the defining artist for the batman of my childhood, suffered a stroke. as is sadly the case for most artists, Norm had no insurance. one week in the hospital emptied out his life savings and now he's facing massive bills for his recuperation.

Norm's family have started a fund to help defer some of those costs. if you go no further in this post i would urge you to visit that site and give even a little.

the moment i heard i started drawing. as i've mentioned before, i've never met Norm, and he wouldn't know me from adam, but his work is a huge part of the artist i am today. i couldn't let it go.

so i drew.

then i painted.

and now it's done...


tomorrow (the 6th) is my birthday. and for my birthday i'd like you to consider participating in a silent auction for my batman piece : "not broken". (11x17, gouache)

quite simply, over the next week, starting with $300, email me at the above address, subject line "FOR NORM", with your bid, your name, and your address. in the event of two (or more) bids of the same amount the first of those bids received will win.

i'll close the auction at midnight (est) sunday the 11th of january. highest bid wins. 100% goes to Norm's fund.


UPDATE: the auction ended last night. thank you so much to Paramdeep Khangura (@1param1 on twitter) for his winning bid. it should probably be fairly clear to everyone by now how deeply i feel about all this, so i'd like to thank (again) Paramdeep, all the other bidders, and everyone who helped spread the word about this online.

thank you.

in advance of this year's OTTAWA COMIC CON, i was contacted by local brew pub, the CLOCK TOWER, to create art (with jordie bellaire)for their new beer KAPOW!

here's a very lazy breakdown of the process:
