[size=200]Jonathan Ross and Lib Dem leader Tim Farron MP To Auction Original Art at London event for Lakes Festival[/size]
Kendal, 5th October 2015: In June 2012 London hosted the Olympics. But in November 2015 there’s something even bigger coming to the capital. Yes, it’s the Lakes International Comic Art Festival Grand Auction of Original Comic Art, featuring works by the likes of Ian Churchill, Hunt Emerson, Dave Gibbons, Jamie Hewlett, Sean Phillips, Bryan Talbot, the team from VIZ and more – with art being added to the auction over the next few weeks.
Proceeds from the auction – which will be run by Jonathan Ross, side by side with Kendal’s Tim Farron MP (and Lib Dem leader) will help to raise funds for future Lakes International Comic Art Festival projects after this year’s upcoming event (16th – 18th October 2015) in Kendal.
Over the last few weeks and months some of the greatest artists currently working in comics have been scouring their archives and generously donating dozens of gorgeous pieces of artwork for our auction. We have items ranging from brief doodles by great masters to the original sketches behind cover images that have sold in their thousands all over the world.
The auction will take place on 24th November at Orbital Comics in London, and the catalogue is live online right now, where you can also bid if you can’t make the actual event (places are very limited!)
The auction will be running both online and in the room simultaneously, so you can log in no matter where you are. Just register to bid at Proxibid, and you’re all set. In fact it’s a good idea to register whether you’re planning to come on the night or not.
