So the Doug Wright Awards had a super-cool art auction fundraiser and I nearly missed the entire thing.
This is why I keep telling my wife that I should spend more time with comics: reading them, writing about them and reading about them. Otherwise I miss things like the opportunity to own original art by my favourite Canadian artists like Seth, Michael Deforge, John Martz, Michael Cho, Pascal Girard, Chester Brown and so many more. And it’s for a great cause.

The Crimes of Two-Face by Chester Brown
The 2013 Doug Wright Awards will be held on Saturday, May 11. While not an official part of the Toronto Comic Arts Festival programming, it honours and celebrates many of the artists whose work is featured at TCAF.
