Literacy Council Fundraiser



Saturday, January 30 (2016), Top Cut Comics on South Alpine in Rockford is hosting a fundraiser for the Literacy Council. I made Spidermallow up there for the silent auction — the ONLY way for you to get him is to place a bid on him in the silent auction and hope you win! He's an 8"x8" collage piece. The pages are from a copy of The Origin of Species. Yes, the one by Charles Darwin. It seemed appropriate. Spidermallow himself is made from polymer clay and painted in acrylic, and the webbing is framing wire. I didn't feel it would be prudent to try to get all the details, so I didn't. He was a lot of fun to put together.

When I first heard about the event, and that pieces were being sought for the auction, I put some thought into it during my morning commute. For the evening commute home, I put more thought in and figure out how I would pull it off. Sometimes a long drive is good for you.

So anyway, if you want to go to the event, and help the Literacy Council (which I recommend) while having a good time, read up on it here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1652127895047581/
