Greek Wildfire Relief Charity Commission Auction announced

American comic art agency Cadence Comic Art have announced two of their clients, Greek comic artists DaNi (2000AD) and Michael Dialynas (TMNT), are auctioning one commission spot each to benefit Greek Wildfire Relief charities.

Greece, along with other parts of the world, has been devastated by appalling wild fires that have destroyed homes, businesses and forests, and taken lives, as temperatures have soared.

Michael Dialynas, best known for his work on TMNT and his co-creations with James Tynion IV, The Woods and their current ongoing hit WYND, will be offering an approximately 12×16, full figure colour commission with limited background.

DaNi‘s commission will be an A3 full figure in pencil and ink. She’s best known for her work on strips such as “Fiends of the Eastern Front” for 2000AD and, more recently, the creator-owned series Coffin Bound from Image Comics, written by Dan Watters

Bidding is open now and to do so, visit the Cadence Facebook Page here or Instagram here and comment on the corresponding auction post. High bids will be updated at both of these locations.
