David Broughton, best known for his independent project Shaman Kane, has been joining many other comic creating artists, writers and publishers in raising money for charity by selling his work.
His latest art – an A3 piece featuring a 1977-styled take on Judge Dredd on the streets of Mega-City 1 – raised £150 for the Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group, the buyer donating straight to the charity through their JustGiving Page.
“I’ll be doing more of these in future,” David, who’s a regular contributor to the 2000AD-inspired comic zine Zarjaz, told downthetubes.
David has been posting work in progress videos on his YouTube channel as the art took shape.
“Thanks to those of you who have been following me as I have inked this picture,” David added. “I hope to do more short films.”
The Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group is a leading children’s cancer charity and the UK and Ireland’s professional association for those involved in the treatment and care of children with cancer.
