Live DFW Art Event Benefiting the Hero Initiative

Hey Gang:

Here's something really cool!!

The ArtLoveMagic crew has asked me to participate in A NATIONWIDE live art event sponsored by the promoters of COMICPALOOZA and benefiting elder comic book creators in serious need through the Heroes Initiative Charity .

This is a large scale problem for the creators of golden and silver age comics (who worked before royalties and fair wages became common practice in the industry and are now struggling just to put food on the table and pay the rent).

Multiple cities across the country will hold live events that will feature artists you can watch creating comic book themed art. Then you can bid on those works in an auction that benefits the Hero Initiative (

Artists I'll be working along side of here at the DFW event are:
Samax Amen (ghettomanga)
James O'Barr (the Crow)
David Rodriguez (bad-azz painter)
Jerod Alexander (street artist)
Isaac Davies (street artist)
Joe Skilz (graff artist)
Michael Lagocki (ghostwerks comics)
Khalid Robertson (Champion of Children)
Trayce Cochran (graff artist)

...and more artists TBA.

To add to the entertainment level, Local Dallas DJs will spin all night long including Hollogram Dagger and Dean Dillenger.

One night only

Saturday, January 22nd
at Arnetic
2826 Elm Street
Dallas, TX

Entry fee is only $3 ...but bring cash to bid on original art!

Rare comic collectibles also available on a buy-it-now table (including a limited edition signed and numbered Eye Witness Slipcase Collection)
