Once again the holiday season is almost upon the country, and like many of us we will be preparing for the visits from family and friends. We will be decorating the house in bright lights, putting up Christmas tree, and of course the much awaited arrival of the big man himself..SANTA!
This year the SCCG (Sacramento Comicbook Creators Group) along with other artists are coming together once again to help out Santa as they for a live drawing session and auction to raise money for the Marines Toys For Tots Drive again this year as they gather at Empire’s Comics to help this fantastic charity. They will also be collecting toys during the event.
The artists will be participating in drawing original artwork each using their different and unique art styles; they will also be on hand to do commissioned art work with all funds going to the Toys For Tots charity; you can participate on the Internet where you can watch these talented artists but also bid and win on original artwork and perhaps commission an artist to draw that favorite cartoon, super-hero, anime or manga character.
In addition, this year we are honored to have special guest from San Francisco, horror hostess and author Reyna Young. She will be joining us to help raise toys and donations and will be hosting the live art auction at Empire’s Comics and will also be hosting the live Internet event. Joining Reyna Young will be her close and personal friend Santa who will also be on hand to talk to the children and take donations to help the Marines raise toys.
Jason Dube owner of Scattered Comics, Scattered Comics Studios and Jeff Hughes owner of Comic Book Divas are teaming up this year to create a limited edition 8 page Christmas coloring book for the kids who bring in donations.
