Sketch o’the Week

February 24th, 2010 | Posted in Sketch O'The Week

Last year I participated in a charity fundraiser called “National Doodle Day“, which auctions off drawings and sketches by a host of artists, authors, actors, directors and celebrities each year in May. The proceeds benefit Neurofibromatosis Inc., a “non-profit organization whose mission is to provide services to individuals with Neurofibromatosis (NB) and their families. NB is an unpredictable disease that cases tumors to form on your nerves, sometimes resulting in disfigurement, paralysis, deafness, blindness or cancer.”- From the Doodle Day website.

I received my packet for my doodle contribution a week or two ago, and took the liberty to do my “sketch o’the week” directly on the official doodle card. Last year I did a caricature of actress Gillian Anderson, who is one of the forces behind the charity event, along with a familiar looking alien:

This year I did the above caricature of LOST star Jorge Garcia, which I hope will sell big considering the auction will take place as the last few episodes of LOST are airing.

This 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ sketch will be mailed off to the National Doodle Day folks today and will be available for bidding when the auctions commence sometime in May… I will make an announcement with a link when that happens. In the meantime, you can check out the doodles they’ve gotten so far here, and if you would like to inquire about contributing a doodle for auction, you can contact the organizers at

    As a member of a multi-generational family with neurofibromatosis, (I have it as do several family members), I want to thank you for participating in Doodle Day. Love your sketch as we are all Lost fans as well. All of us with neurofibromatosis appreciate your helping us out by taking the time to do a doodle and getting the word out about doodle day. The funds raised really do a lot to help us fight this disease.

      It’s just a tiny, little effort on my part, but I am glad to hear that the Doodle Day fundraiser is making a difference. Thank you for the kind words. Good luck to you and your family, and God Bless.
