: Lawless Model Raffle
: shaolin_monkey 11 March, 2019, 07:48:09 PM
I am pleased to announce I will be creating a Lawless exclusive clay model, and raffling it at the event. All proceeds will be in aid of Save the Children. More on the model as it is created, although it will fit with the theme of the event - watch this space!

In the meantime, I am also raffling three existing models in the run up to the event, via the JustGiving page below (also for Save the Children). The draw will take place at Lawless, alongside the draw for the exclusive model.

It’s £2 per raffle ticket. I’m hoping to reach £300 ahead of Lawless.

Please give generously, and good luck in the raffle!

£77 off of the target already, not bad for one day, and two months until Lawless!


I'm just wondering what the Lawless-themed model will be.  Lawson, or Kill-a-Man-Jaro are my guesses.

Yeah, spectacular response for the first day! Maybe I should up the target.

All will be revealed, but there’s a clue in the picture above.

Thanks Eamonn - your good work was my inspiration for this.

Ooh yes - the theme is celebrating the life and works of King Carlos, so plenty of material for guesswork there!

Just to be clear, it doesn’t matter if you’re not at Lawless. If you win one of the sculptures I’ll post it to you.

So please give generously!

136 tickets sold!

Thank you to everyone who has bought one so far. It means so much to me that you’ve contributed to this charity.

Remember, you don’t have to attend Lawless to receive a model if you win - I’ll post it to you! (Especially now Lawless tickets have sold out :D)


Here’s a bit more on why I’ve chosen Save the Children as a charity.

You’ve probably seen headlines like this:

4.5 million children in the UK living in poverty
https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/society/2018/sep/16/new-study-finds-45-million-uk-children-living-in-poverty


80,000 more children in Scotland to be pushed into poverty under ‘austerity’.
https://www.scotsman.com/news/politics/austerity-will-push-a-further-80-000-scots-children-into-poverty-warns-report-1-4891637


Schools now considered the fourth emergency service for children.
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/mar/16/hungry-unwashed-children-fill-our-schools


This is very personal to me. I grew up in impoverished circumstances. I know what it is like to go to school having not eaten for days, unwashed, in badly fitting clothes, often falling apart despite being stitched back together over and over.

That was forty years ago. Up until about ten years ago, the number of children in poverty in the UK was dropping. Then the Conservatives came to power and destroyed any progress with ‘austerity’. Now, currently, there are MORE children in the country in a WORSE position than I was, forty years later. How is that possible in the 6th richest nation in the world?

I’ve been following this for years, and have felt horrified at the situation, recalling how it felt for me as a child. I have also felt powerless. The situation feels like it is killing my soul, but by bit. Lobbying my MP has changed little. Neither has signing petitions.

Despite all public outcry, austerity isn’t going anywhere. The people in power DO NOT GIVE A SHIT.

So this is a small attempt to raise awareness and a bit of positivity - give away a bit of me, the things I have created, the things worth more to me than anything I own as they were borne of my hard work and my time, in an attempt to just DO something - make SOME difference, no matter how slight.

It’s an awful fact we have to lean on charities to help those who can’t help themselves, but this is the situation, and I am sick and tired of feeling powerless in the face of it. Aren’t you?

So why Save the Children? Well, they’re not just about helping kids in far away countries. They do a lot of work at ground level for kids in the UK.

Here are some of the awesome things they do, if you’re interested:

https://www.savethechildren.org.uk/what-we-do/uk-work

The work they do is fantastic, and it’s an immediate way to give a child a chance to grow into the best possible adult they can be.

So even if you have no interest in any of my models, please contribute in some way. Help combat the sense of powerlessness, step up for those who can’t for themselves, and make a difference to a child on our own doorstep.

£300 target hit!!!

Thanks so much everyone! I very much appreciate all of your contributions. This charity means a great deal to me.

This should also be a fun raffle - 150 tickets!

A special mention to Michael Carroll who went for 8 raffle tickets, and pushed it to the £300 target - thanks Michael!

There’s still over a month to go before the draw though. If you would like some raffle tickets for the models, or just want to contribute, please follow this link:

It has just been reported the number of children in absolute poverty in the UK has risen to a staggering figure of 3.7 million.

The work of charities like Save the Children is more important than ever.

If you are a 2000AD or Judge Dredd fan you can support their work by buying a raffle ticket or just contributing here:

Nice one!

Half of me is pleased for you and the charity, and half is disappointed that my odds of winning Dredd werewolf will be reduced! I may have to double-dip and buy a few more tickets....

Many thanks to Dan for shoving in a wad of cash, but leaving raffle tickets to other entrants.

I’ve had a couple of queries about the number of tickets available. The answer is they are limitless. Donate, and I’ll nake sure your name goes into the hat the appropriate number of times based on your contribution.

On another note, just broke the £400 mark - £100 over target!! Thank you very much for all your support folks! This money is going to much needed action for kids in dire straits. Every penny very gratefully received!

Hi all - just a quick update re the model I’m building for the Lawless event. Raffle tickets for this one will only be available on the day at the event. As usual, all proceeds to Save the Children.

A lot of painting to do! Plus I need a couple of accessories.

Thanks folks! I’m working on some accessories at the mo, with the help of Velcro and other bits and bobs. I’m hoping ultimately the eventual owner will be able to choose from a few pages the statue can hold in one hand, and a few artistic utensils in the other.

Nice spice-rack, too!

Cheers, but that’s all the doing of my partner. She’s frequently complimented on her rack.

Whoever wins the raffle will hopefully enjoy these accessories, thanks to Velcro and a laminator.

There’s a lot more besides these, but this a taster. The idea is that the winner can use the statue to display their favourite Ezquerra art.

Hi all! One last push for donations/raffle ticket purchase for my Justgiving/Save the Children model raffle.

£2 a ticket, and the draw will be on or shortly after the Lawless Convention in Bristol mid-May.

I will post the models to the winners.

Please give generously!

Hi all

I am pleased to say my Carlos Ezquerra tribute model is complete! He will be on a nice stand, currently being handcrafted and kindly donated to the cause by a good friend.

This will be up for raffle at the Lawless convention in May exclusively. All proceeds will go to Save the Children.

Raffle tickets will be £3 each, or £10 for four on the day. The aim is £300 by the end of the day.

There will be a live draw at the end of Lawless!

Here he is with my other Carlos inspired models.

A friend of mine hand made a stand for the Carlos droid. As it was larger than expected, I’m going to include the Gronk as part of the prize.

£3 a ticket at the event only, or £10 for four. The winner gets the stand, art droid Carlos, and the Gronk holding all the accessories!

Thank you very much! I hope it raises a ton of cash for the cause on the day.


On a related note, can I just say a massive thank you to the person who donated a chunk of cash on the JustGiving page, but did not want any raffle tickets - they just wanted toget the total up to £500! Thank you so much for your generosity!!

£500!! £200 over target!!

I’m staggered by the generosity of everyone - thank you so much, and good luck to those who have raffle tickets. Just under a month until the draw!

Check it out folks - the final total for the online raffle and the one at Lawless last Saturday, all for Save the Children!

Thanks once again for your incredible generosity. The result far exceeded my wildest fundraising dreams!

For those waiting to hear about the online raffle for Dredd Werewolf, Don Uggie, and Cookie, I’m hoping to complete the draw this week, film it, and post the results here. Watch this space!!!

I’ve just got word from the other online raffle winner, Steve Sullivan, that Werewolf Dredd survived the journey through Royal Mail’s Undercity!

So, with Cookie, Werewolf Dredd, and Don Uggie Apelino all safely delivered, that concludes the JustGiving Lawless Model Raffle! (See pics)

Once again, a reminder that we collectively raised £1406 for Save the Children when including the raffle on the day of Lawless itself - a phenomenal amount. Thank you all for your generosity!

Same again next year? 😄
