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
In addition, bids can be placed privately via email by messaging firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The Wooden Crown” (by Michael Dialynas) high bid is currently $500. DaNi’s high bid is currently: $700. Bidders are asked to please bid in increments of $25.
The auction ends on 26th August 2021 at 12 noon EST. Both commissions will be completed in November 2021 and mailed to winners.
