James Sturm writes to alert us to a worthy donation for a good cause:
Garry Trudeau has generously donated a Doonesbury strip to auction off in conjunction with his October 22 appearance at CCS to help raise money for the school. From what I understand, his strips rarely make it onto the market and have gone for $1000 when they do.
If you want more info or to bid, go here.
This is, btw, an extremely rare public appearance by Trudeau, and tickets for the lecture are already sold out. A few $500 tickets for dinner remain — info on how to reserve one in the above link. Kudos to Trudeau for supporting the CCS — based on what we’ve already seen from students at the cartooning school, this is going to become an important force in comics.
