HOLY CATS! This is another important update to the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good! Please read and donate! Thank you!

Superstar artist Joe Quinones has joined in the fray by offering up the original artwork for his famous Batgirl of Burnside pin-up!

This piece joins:

  • a page of original Superman comic book art by Stuart Immonen and Josef Rubenstein
  • an all-new sketch of Superman by Stuart (done with Copic markers on Stillman and Birn Zeta series extra heavyweight 270gsm plate finish 8.5” x 11”)
  • a 9”x12” commission by Tom Fowler (no art direction, you pick the character, he does the rest)
  • Rocket Raccoon and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, as rendered by Calamity Jon Morris
  • six copies of the rare variant cover of Code Monkey Save World as prizes in the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good.

So, how does the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good work?

All you have to do to qualify for a chance to win is donate $5 or more to one of the charities featured below before 11:59PM on August 18 and then forward your receipt to kevin.church@gmail.com after you’ve donated. You can choose any of these projects, or all of them. I don’t care. If you want to make a note during your donation that it’s for my birthday fundraiser, that would be nice, but it’s not at all necessary.

Winners will be chosen on the evening of Tuesday, August 19 and announced later in the week (We might be videoing the raffle portion, maybe? I need to talk to some people.)

Now, for the charities we’re raising money for this year.

This is a local nonprofit I heartily endorse
Horizons for Homeless Children is, as their website explains, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of young homeless children and their families by ensuring that they are prepared for school success. They do terrific work in the local area and I’ve donated what I can to them in the past.

I also like these projects on DonorsChoose.org:
Check This Out! at Frances J Warren Elementary School in Tuscon, AZ, serving underprivileged kids in a very poor district with a wide variety books to help them discover how great reading can be. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $421 to go.

Notebooks for Writing at Mosaic Prep Academy in New York City, giving kids access to the very basics that will help them start creating worlds for themselves. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $833 to go.

More Books For Our Classroom Library in Gautier, MS, offering up literary options that will engage kids and let them learn how great reading can be. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $677 to go.

Creating a Classroom of Readers and Writers at James Bilhartz Junior Elementary School in Dallas, TX, helping fourth-graders get the basics to help them organize, read and write about library books. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $837 to go.

Developing a True Multicultural Perspective through Literature in Atlanta, GA, teaching teens about the world at large through works that offer alternative perspectives on our world. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $930 to go.

Please note: if you are a comics creator who would like to donate a book or original art or a commission or something to this effort, please let me know at kevin.church@gmail.com. I’d love to get some more incentives in place for donations.

Hey! This is an important update to the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good! Please read and donate! Thank you!

Okay, we’ve had two days of me begging for money and you ogling the art and it’s time to kick things up a notch with more art, this time featuring Rocket Raccoon and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, as rendered by Calamity Jon Morris.

These two excellent pieces (which will be raffled off individually) join a page of original Superman comic book art by Stuart Immonen and Josef Rubenstein, an all-new sketch of Superman by Stuart (done with Copic markers on Stillman and Birn Zeta series extra heavyweight 270gsm plate finish 8.5” x 11”) and a 9”x12” commission by Tom Fowler (no art direction, you pick the character, he does the rest) as prizes in the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good.

See this? It’s been added to Kevin’s sweet birthday deal.
You know that donor fatigue you’re feeling? It’s real, of course it is. But these teachers are asking for your support for their students. They are asking for books and paper.

The current outstanding total for Kevin’s chosen projects on www.donorschoose.org is $4136. We know that seems like a big number. It is. But we can make is smaller… quickly and easily. Maybe before you go to lunch, consider clicking over and donating five dollars. Donors Choose makes contributing very easy. It will make you feel good.  Promise.

Ultimate Spider-Man #127 cover process; marker sketch, pencils, Photoshop tonemap. As often happens, in tightening up the finished drawing, I lost those contrapposto angles that came so easily in the sketch.

NOTE! AN IMPORTANT UPDATE TO THE 2014 KEVIN CHURCH BIRTHDAY FUNDRAISER TO HELP KIDS TO READ GOOD IS INCLUDED IN THIS REBLOG.
kevinchurch:
Next Monday is my birthday and, as I’ve done in previous years, I’m doing a fundraiser for classrooms and deserving charities. This year, since I’m turning FORTY on August 18, I’m going to go really big and offer up a piece of my personal comics art collection to one lucky donor, chosen randomly. That’s it up there.
The rules are simple: if you give $5 or more, you’ll be entered to win this original Stuart Immonen/Josef Rubenstein Superman art. Yes, really. I will give this to one lucky winner. I’ll pay for the shipping (within the US — international people might have to kick in a few bucks) and everything.
Updated to add: Tom Fowler is now offering a commission to one lucky winner, just as he did last year! You can win a 9x12 commission of the character of your choice with a $5 or greater donation! (No art direction, you pick the character, he does the rest!) Since I want to make this fair and as even as possible everyone gets the same chance to win either piece! Everything is random!
All you have to do to qualify for a chance to win is forward your receipt to kevin.church@gmail.com after you’ve donated. You can choose any of these projects, or all of them. I don’t care. If you want to make a note during your donation that it’s for my birthday fundraiser, that would be nice, but it’s not at all necessary.
A winner will be chosen at noon on Tuesday, August 19th, giving you all through my birthday to give a few bucks to help kids.

Reblogging is great. Please reblog. It’s the least you can do. Really, the least. It takes no effort. But you know what’s even better? Reblogging and then making a five dollar donation to one of these organizations. Literacy changes everything, EVERYTHING.  We’ve seen what happens when these projects get funded; feeling like you’ve been seen goes a long way toward knowing that you also have the right, and the responsibility, to be heard. 
We know how hard it is to get up to velocity on things but look, you’re already right now just dicking around on-line. You are halfway to clicking on a link and making a donation. It’s NOT HARD. Promise.

"Boy, if there’s some girl out there who’s had worse luck with men, I’d sure like to meet her. Here, Patsy! Marry Buzz, your childhood sweetheart! Why, that’s a great idea! Whoops! He’s crazy and a super-villain! And you’d think those two things were related, wouldn’t you? Once burnt, twice shy? Not me, sister! I go and marry the Son of Satan. But not actually Satan. Just some guy named Satan. Larry Satan. And what do I get for it? Dead!"

Advice to the mid-career cartoonist who has failed to build an audience

I’ve been publishing comics for coming on twenty years now. It’s hard to pinpoint a start-date, as like many cartoonists I’ve just been drawing my whole life, but sometime around ‘95 would be when I began putting out ‘zines…
