The Los Angeles chapter of the National Cartoonists Society is having a chapter benefit event this Sunday at the home of Sally Lazarus (widow of the late great Mell Lazarus) featuring a live auction with a ton of awesome original cartoon artwork. Check out the lineup on the promo above… I count eight Reuben winners. You can see all the items from the auction and all the details on the LA Chapter website. I donated a page from MAD‘s parody of “True Detective” in issue #528.
This is a live auction only, so there is no online bidding. You would need to RSVP and attend in person. I’m posting this on the off chance anyone reading this in the LA area would be interested in attending. If you do, you will also get the opportunity to see Mell’s place, which is brimming over with historic pieces of cartoon art (there is an original Milton Caniff on the wall among other gems…. MILTON. CANIFF.) plus you will get to see this famous piece of cartooning legend:
Seeing Mell’s piano is worth the trip to Woodland Hills right there. I can’t attend so if you go bid early, often and have fun.
