Bidding Wars on Apokolips

Apokolips (AKA eBay) is selling original art to benefit Hero Initiative, the charity that helps comic book creators in medical or financial need.  Here’s the LINK to the page for my “Wake Up and Draw” original, but the Hero Initiative is listing many delicious, mouthwatering waffles auctions.

Birthday for a King!

Time to celebrate Jack “King” Kirby’s birthday with Wake Up and Draw…and Waffles!  It’s always fun to see a blast of sketches appearing across the internet every August 28th.  The drawings are auctioned off to benefit the Hero Initiative.  Here’s a link to a bunch of the drawings on comicartfans.com
