Artist J.K. Woodward, who has worked on comics like Star Trek The Next Generation / Doctor Who: Assimilation2 and Fallen Angel with Peter David, lost his home and everything he owns because of Hurricane Sandy. If you’d like to help him out, he’s made it easy–he’s selling some wonderful prints and a bunch of his original art to “get us back on our feet.”
My wife and I recently suffered a huge loss from Hurricane Sandy. Our home was lost along with almost everything we own. I’m currently coming up with some fund raising ideas to get us back on our feet and into a home where we can start to rebuild. The first of which is to sell some original pages from my work on the Star Trek TNG/DoctorWho: Assimilation2 series. I have pages and covers available through Cadence Comic Art. There are some great deals to be found there if you act quickly.
The second wave is to make prints from previous works and commissions to sell as prints. This will be a limited 2 week sale and all prints are signed. These are what I have made available for now. More will be added in future blog posts. They are all 11 x 17
To hear more of his story of dealing with the hurricane, check out this podcast.
He’s got images of all the prints and a shopping cart up on his blog, so you can buy them directly from him. They include the above New Mutants piece, along with prints featuring Batman, Justice Society, Space Ghost and more.
As he noted, you can also head over to Cadence Comic Art where you’ll find his original art from the above-mentioned Star Trek/Doctor Who crossover.
This is a great way to help out a comics creator who needs it and get some great original art. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention there are lots of other ways you can help out those affected by the storm, like donating to the Red Cross, Feeding America, AmeriCares or other organizations helping folks out, or even by buying comics from a comic shop affected by the devastation. Alex Zalben has a list of shops in the area that do mail order.
