We all hit bumps in the road, but with a little help we can all overcome any obstacles. As mentioned previously, a good friend of AM and assistant director of Joshua Liner Gallery, Tim Strazza, was unfortunately diagnosed with a Multiple Sclerosis. We helped sponsor a fundraiser created by the gallery to generate funds that went to support Tim and his medical bills. It seemed that almost everyone came out of the woodworks to donate artwork for the charity auction including a heavy rotation of fan favorites such as Ian Francis, David Ellis, Shepard Fairey, Audrey Kawasaki, SWOON, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Dave Kinsey, Chris Mendoza, Damon Soule, Dennis McNett, El Mac, Evan Hecox, Greg Lamarche, Jeremy Fish, Kenji Hirata, Mark Dean Veca, Mars-1, Oliver Vernon, Pema Rinzin, Tony Curanaj, Robert Hardgrave, Ron English, Ryan McLennan, Shawn Barber, Sylvia Ji, Tat Ito and Tiffany Bozic. With all works priced with a starting bid of 30% of their value, attendees were itching to bid and share their generosity. The auction was a tremendous success as it was a win-win scenario for everyone involved. For those that would like to donate please check out the website here.
