“Wake Up and Draw” with The Hero Initiative at Blastoff Comics!
The NoHo Arts District dot Com team is always eager to help support worthy causes and especially ones that involve artists. So when we received word that North Hollywood’s own Blastoff Comics was doing a Wake and Draw event, we had to help spread the word.
The Hero Initiative, the charitable organization dedicated to helping veteran comic creators in medical or financial need, is celebrating the 97th birthday of Jack “King” Kirby on August 28 with a lot of help and love from Jillian Kirby and her parents, Connie and Neal Kirby. Jillian Kirby, Jack’s granddaughter, has spearheaded the “Kirby4Heroes” campaign, which celebrates the King’s birthday all across the globe with a variety of great events that benefit The Hero Initiative!
The Hero Initiative has recruited over 40 artists to get up on the morning of August 28, 2014, to simply “Wake Up and Draw.” Search the hashtag: #WakeUpAndDraw to see all the great drawings as they happen live! All drawings will be featured in a special gallery at ComicArtFans.com, and fans can bid on them in an eBay auction at a later date!
Artist Tone Rodriguez will be creating his piece live in the Blastoff Comics store starting at 11 a.m. on Thursday, August 28!
Fans can visit the official Kirby4Heroes campaign Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/kirby4heroes and donate via the PayPal link at www.HeroInitiative.org. Please type in “Kirby4Heroes” in the special instructions box.
Come down to North Hollywood Thursday and see some great art being created for a great cause!
