A Few Fundraising Ideas

Peterson Toscano is in town today, to do a performance of his Doin’ Time In The Homo No-Mo Halfway House at Goucher College, and I had a chance to hang out with him for a bit this morning.  One of the things we discussed over lunch was fund raising ideas for Morgan Jon Fox’s documentary on the Memphis Love In Action protests, This Is What Love In Action Looks Like.  I’m already in it for several grand, helping out in a way I’m not completely free to discuss, so between that and my new car I don’t have a lot of money to spare for a while and I explained this to Peterson and I guess his imagination is much better then mine because he suggested something that never occurred to me, but which should have because it’s obvious.  I can help raise money for the documentary, by auctioning some of my artwork on eBay.

Not that I’m a world renown cartoonist or anything, but some of you may appreciate owning the original artwork to some of my political cartoons, and in particular the cartoons I’ve done about Love In Action.  I’m also considering selling some of the original artwork to my cartoon series, A Coming Out Story, but there’s a catch to that.  The political cartoons really do look pretty much as you see them on the cartoon page.  But all I can sell of the work I’ve done for A Coming Out Story is the final inks on Strathmore board. which look somewhat unfinished.  All the cross-hatching and the word balloons for that one are done in Photoshop, after I’ve scanned in the inks.  The exception to this are the first four or five episodes, plus My First X-Rated Movie which I did with my old dip pens.  They’re almost completely finished cartoons, including the word balloons (which are empty because I just cannot hand letter anything).

The Mark and Josh originals  are the same, except I do the coloring in Photoshop.  What I can do with those is sell the original, along with a high-quality print of the final cartoon, printed to the same size as the original artwork so they can be framed side-by-side.  100 percent of the proceeds would go to Morgan to finish the documentary.

One other thing I could do, is auction off an original political cartoon, on any topic the successful bidder chooses.

I’m just in the thinking stages of this, so don’t send me any requests or bids on artwork just yet.  But I wanted to float this out there to see how much interest there might be in this.  When I get the next episode of A Coming Out Story posted, I’ll ask the folks on my mailing list how interested they might be in owning some of the original artwork for the series.

    I’d be interested! As for a subject, how about this:

    Alright Bruce, now you got me thinking and I will auction off a DVD of Homo No Mo, a CD of the Best of Marvin AND a personalized voice mail message on mp3 done by the3 character of choice for the person who wins. I’m just looking for an Ebay wizard to set it all up.

  3. Morgan Says:

     You are the greatest.  Both of you are so sweet to help out!
     Im jealous, I wish I coulda been there hanging out with you all.
     I miss you both dearly.
