HELP STAN SAKAI!CAPS, the Cartoon Art Professional Society, has decided to provide whatever assistance we can, starting with an ongoing auction of original art. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to Stan & Sharon to help pay their ongoing medical expenses.
For nearly 30 years, Stan Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo has set a high-water mark for creator-owned comics.
Stan’s wife, Sharon, has battled a debilitating illness for some time; after an extended hospital stay and convalescence, she is now back home, but her condition requires 24-hour care and medicines that cost more than their insurance covers.Creators and publishers, We are asking for your help; please contribute original artwork to this worthy cause.
and Send us your original art donation or product so that we can include it in our auction. Many, many THANKS!!
Bloggers, tumblers and tweeters, please spread the word. Feel free to re-post this wherever you think is appropriate.If you’d like yo help now— You can contribute money to help Stan and Sharon here.
Stan Sakai is a wonderful creator (I’ve enjoyed his Usagi Yojimbo comics for years, and meeting him at SDCC 2013 was awesome) currently in need. If you’re able, help him out (there is a donation button at the link above, so if you’re not able to contribute art, you can send over a few dollars). If not, please reblog and spread the word.
