Mad Cave Announces “Lower Your Sights” Artist Auction to Benefit Children Victims of the Ukraine War

In September 2022, Mad Cave Studios and Voices Of Children teamed up to publish Lower Your Sights, a graphic novel benefit anthology to raise awareness and proceeds for children impacted by war. Now, two original pieces from the graphic novel have been graciously donated by artists J.G. Jones and Liana Kangas, will be made available for auction on Heritage Auctions.com – with all proceeds going to The Voices of Children Foundation. 

The auction will open on Thursday, October 27th and close on November 2nd.

Lower Your Sights is a graphic novel anthology/art book to raise awareness and proceeds for children impacted by war. Comic creators and pin-up artists worldwide were invited to tell stories that focus on the consequences of war, the peace/relief effort, and the resulting long-term ripple effect. The result is a stunning collection of tales about the human condition and how combat affects soldiers, family members, friends, students, doctors, politicians, and allies from afar.
