A FEW PEOPLE HAVE ASKED ME WHY I AM PAINTING CARTOONS. My Pinny Arcade: Fine Art Fan Art series is a fundraiser for Child's Play--Penny Arcade's charity.
Child's Play donates games and gaming devices to children's hospitals nationwide.
Their work is really amazing. Imagine being a kid in the hospital for weeks or months and your only escape is into a game in which you can fly, run, build, and play. It makes such a difference in the midst of the stress and exhaustion of protracted care.
That's why I am working to support Child's Play. Not only do I get the joy of painting these really fun and playful pins on a massive scale, but the proceeds donated from sales of this series will bring joy to a lot of kids who could really, really use it. 50% of all proceeds from my Pinny Arcade series are donated to Child's Play.
See this painting and more at my PAX West Pop Up Art Show at the Staff Pin Trading session on Saturday 9/2 from 4-6pm in the Autograph Area. (A valid PAX pass is required for entry.)
