Official Press Release
Legendary fantasy painter Frank Frazetta has donated an original piece of art to the Josh Medors Benefit Auction at this weekend’s Emerald City ComiCon.
“Having Frank Frazetta donate a sketch is a feather in the cap to an already amazing outpouring of support for Josh that has been shown by the comics community,” said ECCC Organizer Jim Demonakos. “We’ve hardly had time to take pictures and catalog the overwhelming amount of items donated!”
As things are cataloged, they have been added to the silent auction, which is taking place through Thursday at midnight. After that point, all the silent bids will become the opening bids in the live auction. Items can be viewed here: http://www.emeraldcitycomicon.com/medorsauction.php
The driving force behind the auction, Jay Fotos, had this to say, “What can I say, I’m frazzled, from what started as contacting a couple buds to help out turned into huge event! Everyone has been more than generous and we thank everyone that has contributed, I’m so glad we all came together to help out a fellow artist in need, this is very inspiring.”
The Josh Medors Benefit Auction will be taking place at 5:00pm on Saturday, May 10th at the Emerald City ComiCon in Seattle, WA. If you would like to make a PayPal donation directly to Josh, please do so to firstname.lastname@example.org.
