Team Cul de Sac Art
Last Friday, June 17, 2011 was the art deadline for Team Cul de Sac. The day before I posted part one (of two) of my "Cul de Sac Meets Curls" comic strip which you can see here.
On Saturday I sent the original inked art and glossy print in a package to Andrews McMeel Publishing. Above is a photo of me at the post office holding the art.
I will be posting part two tomorrow at www.curls-studio.com/curls.
The Team Cul de Sac project is lead by Chris Sparks, who formed Team Cul De Sac through Team Fox in honor of cartoonist and Cul de Sac creator, Richard Thompson. The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today.
Team Cul de Sac invited cartoonists to donate original art made especially for a book about Parkinson's awareness in Richard's honor. Part of the profits from the sale of the book would benefit MJFF, and the original art will be auctioned as part of the fundraiser with all of auction money going to MJFF. Additionally, there will be a limited number of deluxe edition books signed and numbered by Richard Thompson.
I'm really excited about this book and enjoy looking at everyone's contributions at http://teamculdesac.blogspot.com.
