If you haven’t heard (and by “haven’t heard” I mean “are living under a rock”) or have just joined us, on May 8th we are extremely grateful to have booked the renowned author, Spider Robinson, for our Robert A. Heinlein special. Unfortunately Spider’s wife Jeanne has cancer. As we all know, being ill can be quite pricey and we wanted to do something to help. Instead of raising a small sum of money from our listeners and giving it to the Robinsons we came up with a better idea that could include a great number of people in the community who expressed an immediate desire to be part of our efforts.
We decided to do an auction. Our initial conception consisted of a single Jam sketch, to be contributed to by any artist at GraniteCon Nashua or Boston Comic Con who was interested. We were consistently bowled over by the positive and enthusiastic response that we received. We completed not one, but SIX jam pieces, and several artists kindly donated signed originals or prints.
Artists who donated a sketch to our jam pieces include: SERGIO ARAGONES, MIKE MIGNOLA, JOE LINSNER and EVA HOPKINS, BEN TEMPLESMITH, AMBER BENSON, BILLY TAN, JIM MAHFOOD, SCOTT WEGENER, SARA RICHARD, TRACY LEE QUINN, ILLUSTRATOR X, Jason Casey, Shawn M. Corliss, TJ Dort and Joe Haley, Nicole Hansche, Corey Hodgdon,, MKT Productions, Enrique Savory Jr., Scott Cohn, Shawn Griffin, Mike Huddleston, Rich Woodall, Ron Smith, Amanda Norden, Peter Vinton Jr., Frankie B. Washington, Cara Judd, Amy Fletcher, Chris Hebert, Tyler James, Amos Madruga, Angela Costello Nueves, Joshua Santa-Cruz, Scott Hamilton, Norman Lee, Andrew LoVuolo, Lauren Monardo, Greg Moutafis, Craig Rousseau, Scott Ethan Ambruson, Dave Gordon, Jay Kennedy, Ian NIchols, Matt Ryan, Rich Tenorio, Alex Sylvia.
Thank you all of you, for your passion and excellence in producing these pieces.
At the final tally, we have an incredible 24 items to offer as e-bay auctions to benefit Jeanne. The auctions will be held by Dream for Jeanne Auctions and begin on May 8th during our Robert A. Heinlein special. The auctions will end on May 15 during our show.
