Team Cul De Sac Auction

Team Cul de Sac was created to honor Richard Thompson, creator of the award-winning comic strip, Cul de Sac, after his recent Parkinson’s disease diagnosis. Cartoonists, artists, illustrators, and animators have donated original artwork for an auction, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting the Michael J. Fox Foundation to support Parkinson’s research. The auction ends June 10 at 10:00 p.m. The artwork is also collected in a book, Team Cul de Sac: Cartoonists Draw the Line at Parkinson’s (Andrews McMeel Publishing), to be published June 5, 2012. A portion of the proceeds from the book will also be directed to the Michael J. Fox Foundation.

This is a great cause, so please consider supporting the MJF Foundation’s effort to aid Parkinson’s research by either bidding on some original art, or purchasing the book collection of the donated artwork.  I had the opportunity to see an advance copy of the book at the NCS Reuben Awards weekend in Las Vegas last weekend, and it’s absolutely gorgeous.  Chris Sparks did an amazing job putting it together.

My humble offering to the auction (a collage of Petey and Alice made from comic page newsprint) is pictured above, but with contributions by artists like Bill WattersonSergio Aragones, and Lynn Johnson this is also a rare opportunity to purchase the artwork of some true cartooning legends.
