Of Comicons and Cancer Benefits...

Hey there, my faithful art fans. Time to once again give you all the latest scoop on the happening around the Sequential Treasures home base.

First of all, I'd like to thank all of those who came out to see us at the Jet City Comic Show last Saturday. I'd like to, really, but folks would have had to show up for me to do that. This was probably just about the worst attended show I've ever seen. There were more vendors and artists walking the floor than fans. Needless to say Sequential Treasures will NOT be making an return engagement there. Maybe the show's creators should make sure people actually will show up to the event, before they host it.

Be that as it may, it still hasn't slowed down our own plans. As since October is soon upon us, so is another event that has become a mainstay for us: The Marla Bea Breast Cancer Benefit. For those of you not familiar, a friend of mine start up this benefit a couple years ago, to help raise money to fight breast cancer. He uses donated original pieces of art, from many generous artists, and auctions them off with all the proceeds going to a research center in Iowa that is working for a cure to breast cancer. He does it in October, as that is also breast cancer awareness month.

Those of us who are a part of Sequential Treasures have always helped out in years past and this year in no different. Several of our artists have donated an original piece for the cause. Here's a list of this year's pieces:

  • Arcee (from the Transformers) by artist Ben Hansen

  • Dagger by Mike Vosburg

  • Poison Ivy by Randy "Rantz" Kintz

  • Spider-Woman by Matt Haley

You can see all of the art pieces our artists listed above donated on our Facebook page. You can learn more about the benefit, as well as all the other artists who are donating to this worthy cause at their website. The auctions will be starting on October 12th and can be found at this eBay account. Please, do your part and help to support a very worthwhile benefit.

Well, that's all for now. But there is more coming down the pipeline, as we swing into the final months of 2011. Make sure to stay tuned here, as these things develop. Until next time, peace out!
