    Hey everyone, comic artist Tom Brown needs your help!

    He nearly had his first graphic novel published by one of the major players in the industry (and indeed, they even ran ads for it) until his contract with them was permissibly but unceremoniously cancelled. Unfortunately, Tom has discovered that he has to move within the next month in order to have his son, Cormac, live with him full time, and he needs some financial help to make this happen.

    So all original art by Tom is now on sale, and Tom is accepting as many commissions and paying gigs as he can handle without dying. And I guarantee, if you’re looking for an artist, there are very, very few finer than he.

    Please check out samples of his work at his Myspace page and/or DeviantART page and email him at hopelessmaine@gmail.com

    And if you can make a donation, any small piddly change at all, PLEASE email Tom and let him know you’re willing to help out. Either email Tom to work out where to send a check or money order, or send instant donations to my own paypal account: gillian6dave9@yahoo.com

    Thank you all so much for taking the time to read this, and please help Tom out if you can! Below are some samples of his stuff!

    I believe most of the work you see uses soft blacks and charcoal rather than traditional inks, but in that sense, yes, everything is more than just pencils and additionally everything is toned. As for eBay, I don't think that'll happen, but all the pieces can be seen on Tom's DeviantART page (http://copperage.deviantart.com) and there you can contact him and offer a price for absolutely anything! Thank you for checking this out! --Dave B.
