what we're rustling up is a stupendously tasty bundle of original art, 2000ad pages, signed graphic novels and scripts , and all sorts of crazy 2000ad stuff!

the auction will go live at midnight on august 8th, but more details will be revealed on this site and also drawtheworldtogether.com

a full list of the 2000ad creators who have agreed to pitch in so far , goes like this:

dave gibbons

McMahon artwork? Sweet! Though would it be possible for Rufus and Wake to have some kind of bidding 'handicap' during the auction to give the rest of us a chance? Maybe ... I dunno ... break their fingers, or something? ;)

: Buddy 28 July, 2006, 07:34:48 PM
If there's McMahon artwork up for grabbs just accept it's got "Property of R. Dayglow" on the back.

: Wake 31 July, 2006, 04:19:55 AM
I have several bidding handicaps on this auction.

I have no spare money.

I already have a McMahon Judge Dredd page and wouldn't want to pay the current market value for a second.

I'm on holiday for nearly 3 weeks from tomorrow morning, so I won't be able to bid on anything anyway.

Cheers,

Wake

Also... Mick doesn't have any old pages left (some git bought them all..grumble).
So if he's donating something, it'll be new.

I've donated the Future Shock Page written by Al Ewing, Inked by Garry 'Miracleman' Leach.

I've placed a bid on one thing.
I'll probably consider bidding on other stuff too, but I'll leave it a day or two to see what might be in my price range.

Any one bothered about Boarder's Ettiquette? Or (seeing as it's for charity) are we for an all out bidding war?
: Re: 2000AD ONLINE CHARITY AUCTION!...
: DavidXBrunt 09 August, 2006, 09:26:57 PM
Normally if I see someone I know is bidding for something I would think twice about bidding for it myself. I think in this case the prices should be as high as possible.

Gallant of you to say so David -- your name's on some of the items I might want!

Does anybody know what happened to McMahon art? Although, as a consolation, there are two cracking Dr Who photos.....
: Re: 2000AD ONLINE CHARITY AUCTION!...
: Rex Banner 10 August, 2006, 03:10:38 AM
& David, I went to ?180 on the Necropolis art so feel free to bid some more. Hoping the reserve is ?200.

Looking at the Kevin Walker Mandroid artwork, what does

Ink on tracing paper (no solid blacks).
mean? No solid blacks? So just initial drawings then that were used as the basis for the actual finished artwork?
: Re: 2000AD ONLINE CHARITY AUCTION!...
: +rufus+ 14 August, 2006, 04:58:00 AM
Kev doesn't fill in the black areas,  he draws the lines, then drops the black areas in on Photoshop.
He's inked onto tracing paper, as his pencils were probably rough on layout paper.
Hope that helps !

Hurray! I won something!

Well done everyone who bid...
You can always just donate money to draw 'Draw the World Together"  as well.... even a ?5 helps!

Well, it was a bad time for a charity auction for me as I'm broke as buggery.  I checked my bank account and paypal account for funds, even my lottery to see if I'd won anything (I had, a tenner, which I took as an omen!).

I bid on a few things, but got outbid on most of them (The Grant scripts, Lloyd's Slaine and I even offered ?20 for the Bison cover :p because it would have made me chuckle to see it on my wall), or they raced away from me (Flint's ABC Warriors), or I never had a chance in the first place (Gibbon's Dan Dare), but managed to end up with some very nice Patrick Goddard art from My Beating Heart, which was a story I enjoyed at the time.  So thanks to Patrick for the opportunity to win that, it'll be going on my wall.

Anyone else here get anything?  
: Re: 2000AD ONLINE CHARITY AUCTION!...
: paulvonscott 14 August, 2006, 03:17:35 PM
Ah, Rufus got that Slaine, I thought he'd come back for another go at it.  It's a very nice picture.
: Re: 2000AD ONLINE CHARITY AUCTION!...
: Buddy 14 August, 2006, 03:23:42 PM
Yeah, poor time for an auction... no money!!!

Last week of month would be better, closer to payday.

?280 for all those Kev Walker pages, what a gift! I'd have bid on those if pay day was closer.

Good to see the Rufus/Leach page got its reserve, pity the Jock page had a similar reserve as I'd have bid on that pay day or not.

Can we look forward to another similar auction in the future?

Anyone on the board win anything?
: Re: 2000AD ONLINE CHARITY AUCTION!...
: Rex Banner 14 August, 2006, 03:25:27 PM
I got the Mandroid art. Smiling like an idiot about it too!

Really thought it was going to go beyond my budget. (Thank you Opaque for stopping bidding when you did!)
: Re: 2000AD ONLINE CHARITY AUCTION!...
: Buddy 14 August, 2006, 03:34:21 PM
Well done that man on the Mandroid art!! Deal of the year there.

Glad it went to a fan rather than a dealer.
: Re: 2000AD ONLINE CHARITY AUCTION!...
: paulvonscott 14 August, 2006, 03:36:49 PM
Me too, Mandroid was a great story.  

But what do you do with it all, wallpaper your spare room or get it bound into a book?
: Re: 2000AD ONLINE CHARITY AUCTION!...
: Rex Banner 14 August, 2006, 03:54:20 PM
I honestly hope I can afford to keep it all, not sure how or where yet.

I do have a wedding to plan in the future so I may have to sell some of it at a later date. Just have to wait & see.
: Re: 2000AD ONLINE CHARITY AUCTION!...
: Buddy 14 August, 2006, 08:28:22 PM
If and when you sell some pages for your wedding fund, you've got a buyer for some pages right here. Just give me a heads up when the time comes.
: Re: 2000AD ONLINE CHARITY AUCTION!...
: Oddboy 14 August, 2006, 08:36:24 PM
Yeah... let us know if you don't want 'em!!

I won the Bogie Man book... everything else I wanted got too high for me.
: Re: 2000AD ONLINE CHARITY AUCTION!...
: Pete Wells 14 August, 2006, 10:33:07 PM
Ggggr I?m on my hollys in Ibiza and I?ve been jumping on the net any time I can to bid. I got beat by a quid on two of the auctions (a Henry Flint and the Bison cover!)

Well done everyone who won (ye bastards:))

Pete (sunburnt loser!)  
: Re: 2000AD ONLINE CHARITY AUCTION!...
: WoD 14 August, 2006, 10:39:13 PM
Didn't get anything...never mind.  Nearly bid big last night on the Mandroid stuff, but the wine/wallet ratio was in the wallet favour...shame!
: Re: 2000AD ONLINE CHARITY AUCTION!...
: opaque 14 August, 2006, 11:27:47 PM
Well I'm happy the Mandroid went to a proper fan as well.
Not far off your top price was I Matthewvic? How much were you willing to go to?
I'm getting a bonus from work so I bid to the minimum I'm know I'm going to get from that but obvious not enough and I might have to wait a couple of months to get the bonus.
You know you're going to have to post pics of the big pile when you get them!

Thinking of it though, and I just realised this, I already have 43 pages of Kevin Walkers Sin City!

I am however soon getting a plan chest for my collection so it'll be loads safer and flat rather than being in art cases propped up under my table!
: Re: 2000AD ONLINE CHARITY AUCTION!...
: Rex Banner 15 August, 2006, 12:20:18 AM
I bid high early thinking that if somebody wanted them they would bid over the weekend & was completely surprised nobody else bid.

As for my top bid, lets just say the fiancee wasn't too pleased when she saw it.
: Re: 2000AD ONLINE CHARITY AUCTION!...
: Buddy 15 August, 2006, 12:41:38 AM
As for my top bid, lets just say the fiancee wasn't too pleased when she saw it.

Just tell her that if you sold them at ?20 a page (which you could easily do) you'd get almost ?1500 back.

Not a bad investment.

Oh, and a very big thankyou should go to Kev Walker for donating the set, so from all at the board (especially mattewvic) THANK YOU!!!
: Re: 2000AD ONLINE CHARITY AUCTION!...
: Rex Banner 15 August, 2006, 01:25:56 AM
Yes, many thanks, Mr Walker, rest assured they will be well looked after.

& a big round of appaulse for a job well done to everyone who contributed to the auction.

I got the Family book, which I'm pleased about, as I've been meaning to re-read it in one go.
I had a go at some of the art, but it was never going to happen. :-)

I'd be interested to hear the total raised, as I would estimate it would be in the region of a grand.

Cheers, and well done to the fund-raisers!

Managed to get the D'Israeli art which I'm well chuffed with as a big fan of Leviathan. Thought the Henry Flint stuff might go for more seeing as I spent almost double obtaining a page of ABC Warriors at Artdroids. Still well done whoever got it.
