This is a benefit auction, featuring art from over 60 illustrators and photographers. It runs until June 11, and all proceeds will go to continue to help art director Bob Newman pay off medical bills as a result of an accident he endured last year. Bob has been wonderful to me since I began illustrating about 20 years ago. My first published illustration was for The Village Voice, where he was design director at the time. I later worked for him at VIBE magazine and Fortune magazine.
