18x24 white charcoal and pencil on paper
Just wanted to share a sketch that I recently finished for a piece I'll have included in a charity art auction fundraiser that will be held this Spring. But first, a little backstory: Mike "Daarken" Lim is a working concept artist and freelance illustrator who's girlfriend, Cat, was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 25 earlier in 2009 . She is now recovering from her treatment and surgery but the medical bills and toll it took on her mentally and physically have been overwhelming, so Mike and his friend, Leif Jeffers (an animator at DreamWorks) organized this fundraiser to help her out. The proceeds of the auction will go to paying off Cat's medical bills and the remaining funds will go to a breast cancer related charity.
There will be a show held with the artwork at a soon to be determined venue this Spring. Over 200 artists have joined in for the cause and submissions have been capped due to gallery space.
Some of the artists involved include:
Andrew Jones (Android Jones)
(a very small handful of the bunch)

Thanks for taking the time to check this out and I hope you all like the sketch!
