In mid Novemeber artist Joe Phillips shared some upsetting news…
“Hi gang. I have some bad news I am having my right foot amputated tomorrow due to in diagnosed diabetes. I was in septic shock from an infection so it got bad from there the bones in my foot are all messed up and surrounded by infection It’s scary but I have good doctor so I’ll be fine thanks all I really appreciate it”
What he didn’t share was the economic burden this would place on a freelance artist without health insurance.
Joe is not just a great artist, he’s a great guy and as testament to that, friends and fans alike are gathering at Modern Times’ Lomaland Fermentorium for an evening of sketches, cold libation and cheer!
100% of all proceeds from artwork go to Joe Phillips. Modern Times is donating the space and the artists are donating their time.
Please come and support Joe Phillips and have a great evening to boot and bring your friends!!
So far, scheduled to appear to sketch for attendees are:
Alex Sinclair (Alex has also donated a limited edition print to raffle at the event)
and more to come!
Sketch cards will be made available for a minimum donation and only those cards will be eligible to receive sketches. No signings will be allowed so please leave your comics and sketchbooks at home.
