Rob Guillory Contributes Original Sketch to the CBLDF

June 22nd, 2011 Comments off

Rob Guillory ComicsMore mouthwatering news: artist Rob Guillory has generously volunteered to contribute to our Third Annual CBLDF/SDCC Auction Event!

The Eisner Award-winning artist has rocketed to prominence thanks to his incredible work on Image Comics’ Chew, with writer John Layman, which features Tony Chu, a cibopathic police detective. He can learn even the smallest details of anything he eats–which makes homicide cases a leetle icky.

Guillory, along with the rest of our participating publishers and creators, will donate an original sketch to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, an organization dedicated to defending the First Amendment rights of the comics community. These sketches will in turn be auctioned off at San Diego Comic-Con in July.

Want your own copies of these exclusive sketches? We’ll be creating limited-edition autograph cards of all of the sketches we receive, which we will be handing out for free at SDCC. Make sure to visit TFAW at booth #5625 July 21-24 to get yours!
