Graphic novelist Ant Sang will be aiding victims of Christchurch by donating artwork featuring a character from his new graphic novel Shaolin Burning. Called the ‘Monk Who Doubts’, the 42cm by 48cm piece is on TradeMe and so far bidding is around the $100 mark. Sand is also a designer for the animated show bro’Town and has offered to put pen to paper and draw a one-off drawing of the auction winner amongst the characters.
All proceeds from both TradeMe auctions will go to the Red Cross 2011 Christchurch Art Appeal. According to Sang:
(I) just wanted to do something to help out down there seeing as I’m all the way up in Auckland and quite removed from it.
