Rich Faber is a good guy — he and John Gallagher put together the MORE FUND books for CBLDF, and Drawing Strength, the Hurricane Katrina benefit book. I received a letter from him yesterday with the news that his wife Traci is battling Stage 4 metastatic melanoma. On his blog, he goes into the details and yes, he is trying to raise some money.
Here’s what I have in mind: I have a backlog of 15 years worth of comic book art that I’d like to make available to finance some of the expenses. In addition, while I do have work on my desk, I’m looking to take on a little extra commission work (illustration, comics, etc.), and even more ideally, new illustration projects for clients. Ongoing work would be especially cool, but I hear we might have a little problem with our economy right now, so I’ll understand if that’s not feasible at the moment.
You can email Rich at rich(underscore)faber(at)comcast(dot)net for more information on the T-shirts and artwork he’s selling. It’s a tough time for everyone, but if you’re interested in buying some things, take a look. And send some good thoughts.
