Bid On My Original “Usagi Yojimbo” Art to Benefit the Sakais

June 16th, 2014 | Posted in General

I’ve written here about the ongoing auction by the Cartoon Art Professionals Society to benefit the Sakai family. My contribution is now on the auction block (see above). It’s an ink and watercolor piece the will be part of the Darkhorse Comics special book, “THE SAKAI PROJECT; Celebrating 30 Years of Usagi Yojimbo”, Being release in July, 2014 (at San Diego Comic-Con) with all proceeds going to Stan & Sharon Sakai.

If you have any interest, please go and bid as the money is going to a good cause. Stan’s wife Sharon is have serious health problems and any financial help they can be given is a major help. I don’t think this little piece will go for very much, so you might be able to get a good deal. Plus, how often do you see Usagi and M.C. Hammer together? If you rightly are thinking “meh”, go check out the other items up for auction by real artists!

    I’ve been a FB friend with Stan for a while and hate to see him and Sharon go through this. Thanks for donating the piece Tom!!!

    I’ll never be able to look at Usagi’s trousers in the same way again 🙂 Great artwork Tom and thanks for donating it to Stan’s auction
