Call to artists: Help fight human trafficking
Comic Creators for Freedom is sending out a call for artists to participate in its third annual fund-raising project, which will launch on Jan. 9. CCF is an organization of comics artists that raises money to fight child slavery and human trafficking through art; so far $15,000 has been raised for the cause. Participating creators send in a drawing of one of their female characters, and the drawings are combined into a single image, which is offered as a downloadable wallpaper to donors. Artists interested in participating should contact organizer Lora Innes by Dec. 31. The fund-raiser will run from Jan. 9 to Jan. 20, and the money raised will go to Love 146, an organization that fights human trafficking on a global scale, and Gracehaven, a home for victims.
The list of participants is already pretty impressive: In addition to Innes, the creator of The Dreamer, participating artists include Danielle Corsetto (Girls With Slingshots), Thom Zahler (Love and Capes), Scott Christian Sava (The Dreamland Chronicles) and Chris Watkins (Odori Park).
