Fleen Guy’s Gary Tyrrell has news that several cartoonists are banding together to hold an auction of original art to raise money for Gulf of Mexico clean up and restoration efforts. Gary interviews Carly Monardo who is one of the main organizers.
Fleen: Let’s start from the beginning – give us the 30 second version of what your project is all about.
Monardo: My friend Tom Bayne started out selling production drawings he had from Venture Bros. to raise money for the Gulf Coast. When he saw how well that went, he decided to expand his efforts and organize an animation art auction that would accept donations of original art from any cartoon. I thought it was an amazing idea, and I wanted to bring the webcomic community into it.
