For those that don't know, Sharon Sakai, wife of Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai, has required medical attention and the bills are starting to mount. Towards that end, CAPS (Comic Art Professional Society) has put together a benefit auction to aid in covering the costs.
Starting today, 3/6/14 at 5:00 pm PST the Sakai Auction will go live. This is your chance to do for one of our own… and pick up something nice along the way. Win-win, right?
I'm shutting down commissions and sales for the duration of the auction. If you have money burning a hole in your pocket, please, send it the Sakai's way.
