23-JULY-2011 Every week there’s another blog post about someone in the comics industry or fandom that is having financial trouble. It’s a sad realization that so many of us can’t make ends meet doing the things we love. One recent case is fellow podcaster Dayna from the cool podcast MADE OF FAIL. Mutual friend, J.K. Woodward has taken a bold step in helping out Dayna and her family from foreclosure. JK is picking up his brushes and offering to paint original comic pages for donors to help Dayna.
But if you’d like to do more and get some original art, I’m offering an original page of your choice and specification to the first 3 who donate $300 dollars or more. ~JKW
I have my own original JK Woodward sketch among my prized collection of original art. Visit JK’s blog post to see all the details about how to donate and how to collaborate on making an original comic book page. I think this a brilliant and unique idea that most comic book fans would not have the opportunity to ever do.
