Charity Auction

We usually don’t plug this sort of thing, but the array of talent assembled here is worthy of note. Thomas Brillante (The Art Institute of California) is organizing a charity art auction for the Loma Linda Children’s Hospital, pulling in contributions from many artists in the animation and film industry. Artists like Lorelay Bove, Lou Romano, Bill Perkins, Iain McCaig, Peter De Seve, Shuan Tan, Dean Yeagle, Bruce Smith, Floyd Norman, Glen Keane, Frank Kusuma (above), Glen Vilppu, Grace Lee, Pascal Campion, Stephen Silver and several others have donated either originals or prints. 100 percent of the proceeds go to the hospital — and any pieces that don’t sell will be gifted to hospital. The auction will be held next Saturday December 19th, 5pm to 10pm. For more information, updates and to view some of the art, visit the Gifted Artist Charity Art Auction website.

  • Oh awesome! I know Tom personally and he’s going to do a great job with the auction. Invite everyone you know!

  • Just added Mark Henn and Bruce Smith both supervising character animators on the Princess and the Frog. They did character drawings for the show. Awesome I will be updating the blog for those of you who cannot make the auction. The work is really nice so far please check it for updates.
