A couple of posts ago, I wrote about a crowdfunding campaign that I’m involved in. The Camosun Comic Arts Festival, or CCAF, is raising funds through Indiegogo for the event in April. I donated an original comic page made specially for the campaign, with prints available as well. The original sold almost immediately (there are still signed prints at the $50 perk level if you’d like one)!
Because I really want this campaign to succeed, I’ve donated another piece, a page from Spam and the Sasquatch. I don’t often donate art to causes, but this is an event we’d really like to get going here in Victoria, and in which, as an alumna of the school I have a personal stake. And it’s hard, hard I say, to turn loose of my comic pages; each one represents many hours of labour, and I love them as being my only offspring — and this is one of my favourites. So you know I mean it.
Now, admittedly, at $500 Canadian, this page is pricey (remember, this is an original, 14×17″ watercolour painting), and not everyone may want a framed original comic page on their wall (but for some lucky person, this is going to be exactly what they want!). However, if everyone who reads this kicked in two or five dollars (Canadian), we’d be well on our way to paying for the festival! And there’s another way you can help as well — share this post, or better still, the CCAF Indiegogo page, on your social networks!
Thanks for your support, if you choose to give it!
