AM was in attendance at the “F%#k Cancer! We Love Justin” silent art auction held at Poketo studios. You may not recognize Justin VanHoy’s name, but you’ve undoubtedly seen the work he’s done as art director of Swindle and his contributions to Obey Clothing, Cobra Snake and Wired Magazine. All proceeds from the event went directly to support Justin’s recovery from a successful bone marrow transplant after a relapse of lukemia.
The big contributor of the evening was Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Paul Weitz, who went home with four works in total, which included some great pieces by Shepard Fairey and Caroline Hwang. Other artists who donated their work for the auction were: Amanda Visell, Derek Albeck, Ernesto Yerena, Jim Houser, Tim Biskup, Travis Millard and many more.
