COMICS FOR CURES ~ This is such a FANTASTIC idea!
I've been doing everything I can to help spread awareness about this event, not to mention I donated a couple of sketch cards for their Gallery & auction!

SKETCH CARD AUCTION & GALLERY SHOW FOR THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY
The first event in March 2008 showcased 200 artists with over 1200 sketch cards & raised over $7,400 for the American Cancer Society!
There will be a public exhibition at Comics 2 Games, Florence KY on April 4th, 2009
The auction of all of the art cards will go online the week before the sketch card exhibition and will end that evening. All proceeds from the sale of the cards will go to the American Cancer Society.
Bob and Mike Hickey, founders and owners of Blue Line Art, are organizing this fundraiser in honor of Bob's wife Katie, a breast cancer survivor. Blue Line publishes Sketch Magazine and Graphic Novel Scene and sells Blue Line Art Boards to both comic book companies & individual artists. The Hickey family has long been aware of the generosity of the comic book community. All involved are looking forward to another successful event that celebrates the diversity of comic book artists' unique talents & their heroic spirit of helping those in need!
