The CAM needs artist for the Sketch-A-Thon at the SDCC09

Hey all, I will be in San Diego for the Comic-Con this summer working with the Cartoon Art Museum again. If you are an artist and are at the con and want to help out….

The Cartoon Art Museum Sketch-A-Thon at San Diego Comic-Con needs your help!

San Diego Comic-Con International is fast approaching, and the Cartoon Art Museum needs your help! In order to raise funds and raise awareness of the Cartoon Art Museum, we’ll be hosting our second annual Sketch-A-Thon at this year’s Comic-Con.

We’re looking for artists to sit at our table for one-hour sessions, drawing sketches for Comic-Con attendees in exchange for donations to the Cartoon Art Museum. Past guest artists included Alison Bechdel, Tom Beland, Daryl Cagle, Rick Geary, Derek Kirk Kim, Keith Knight, Batton Lash, Steve Lieber and Eric Powell, among others, and we’re hoping to put together another all-star line-up for this year. This year’s guest list already includes Marvel Comics artist & letterer Rick Parker, mini-comics creator Karen Luk and underground comix legend Bobby London, with more surprises to come.

Artists of all shapes, sizes and skill levels are welcome, so please don’t be intimidated by the list that I’ve posted. We’re hoping to have one veteran artist and one up-and-comer at the table at all times, which will allow the younger artists to learn from the older ones (and vice versa).

We set a new fundraising record at last year’s Comic-Con, and we’re hoping to top that total this year.

Thanks very much for your consideration. If you’re able to give some of your time at this year’s Comic-Con, please send me an e-mail and I’ll fill you in on the details and start working out a schedule. If you’ll be on-site but unable to leave your table and you’d still like to contribute a sketch or a signed book, please let me know and I’ll add you to our sign-up list.

Best,

Andrew Farago
