Cause the Cause
We're honored to tell you guys about a special charity art event put on by our friends at Mattel called "Dream Halloween: The Art Show." Benefitting an incredible charity G1988 has worked with in the past, Children Affected by Aids Foundation (CAAF), there will be a silent auction for original art, mostly from the in-houses geniuses at Mattel (which includes 1988 regular Brandon Sopinsky above) and your bids go to such an amazing cause. We ask you guys to check out their website, www.halloweenintoyland.com and give to a worthy cause and pick up some worthy art! And artists: You can donate art too! Check out the "Donate Art" section to see how!
UPDATE - Art donation submissions can be sent to David.Voss@Mattel.com with an estimated value.
QUICK UPDATE HERE TOO - There will be a preview night that is open to the public. It will be October 22, from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at the Automobile Driving Museum (610 Lairport St. El Segundo, CA). Casual attire, drinks and light food will be served. And get this - a good amount of original He-Man Packaging Paintings from the 80's will be in the silent auction at the preview. The ones from the boxes! BUT LET THIS BE SAID - you will be bidding against me! And all a nice early set-up for the He-Man show we're doing with Mattel in January!
