Bob Dob

giclee print on fine art paper
12 x 15 inches
limited edition of 50, signed and numbered by the artist

If you are interested in purchasing this Bob Dob print and in turn helping a very worthy cause, please contact our San Francisco gallery at (415) 409-1376 or gallery1988sf@gmail.com to order your copy today. Again, 100% of the sales proceeds will be donated to St. Jude's.

Here is the background story, written by Thumbtack Press owner Tony Bailey...

I'll get right to the point... Cancer sucks. Thumbtack Press owner Tony Bailey lost his brother to Leukemia in 1985. On a more hopeful note, Bob Dob was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma of the knee in 1987 and - thankfully - recovered. It's really impossible to describe the heartbreak and helplessness felt from these devastating illnesses.

In 2006 Thumbtack Press raised $1000 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital with a giving challenge, but that was a "drop in the vast sea" when it comes to cancer research. This year we are going to donate over $3500 with your help. Bob Dob has graciously donated all of his commissions for "Lonely Day" for the cause, likewise, Thumbtack Press will donate all proceeds of this print run to St. Jude... Every single penny.

Here's more good news: YOU get a Thumbtack Press-quality, hand signed limited edition print from Bob Dob for $75. It's really a Win-Win-Win-Win situation. Want to help but don't have the money? Please blog, e-mail, talk to everyone you know about this. Thanks.

A little about St. Jude:
"St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility anywhere. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. We are where some of today's most gifted researchers are able to do more science, more quickly. Where doctors across the world send their toughest cases and most vulnerable patients. Where no one pays for treatment beyond what is covered by insurance, and those without insurance are never asked to pay. We've built America's 3rd-largest health-care charity, with a model that keeps the costs down and the funds flowing, so the science never stops."

Thank you!
