Soaring Penguin Press and Mark Stafford raise money for the Cartoon Museum
Soaring Penguin Press and Mark Stafford have raised over £1,500 for London’s cash-strapped Cartoon Museum.
Soaring Penguin donated the entire proceeds of 50 signed copies of their latest graphic novel, The Bad Bad Place by David Hine and Mark Stafford, to the museum, but Stafford went the extra mile by creating 50 unique paintings for every copy.
Fortunately, the Cartoon Museum has just received a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant, meaning that it will be able to open again safely, but as The Cartoon Museum’s Steve Marchant commented, “Many, many thanks for all the congrats and good wishes regarding our funding success. We’re not out of the woods yet – income has always been an issue – but we can see the sky.”
