I’m pleased to announce that our little art commission charity drive is a success!
Huge thanks to our donors who’ve collectively inflated our donations to the Philippine Redcross to $5227 usd or P221,625 Philippine pesos!
I would like to thank these wonderfully generous people who took time and of course money to donate:
Chris Ryall (IDW) P4500 ($106 usd)
Rodney Fuentebella P2500 ($59usd)
Jason Banico P10,000 ($236usd)
Evic Oropilla P2500 ($59usd)
Keith Giles P10,000 ($236usd)
Kar Nim Leong (Malaysia) P10,000 ($236usd)
Dave Pascuito, P5,000 ($118usd)
Jack Fernandez P20,000 ($472 usd)
Kirk Dilbeck’s brother :) P15,688 ($370 usd)
Yu Oyagani P2500 ($59usd)
Edwin Lee P5000 ($118usd)
You folks are awesome! Huge thanks.
and of course our winners of 2 11x17 Commissions!
Martin Tirtawigoena P33,920 ($800usd)
Our friend from Indonesia who initially wanted to be anonymous but I convinced him otherwise! I’ll make sure your Wolverine piece is gonna be sweet! and oh, Happy Birthday!
Miguel Ramos P100,000 ($2358usd)
The man who brought Mark Millar to Manila, of course. Miguel totally floored me when he texted me about it on the second day of our fundraising. Initially wanting anonymity, I had to request full disclosure from him to keep everything transparent:)
I Originally planned to do only 1 commission. Miguel’s insanely generous donation to the Redcross skewed the mechanics drastically, and in a very positive way. I didn’t have the heart to keep on soliciting donations knowing that it was already over and done with on the 2nd day so I decided to award 1 more to still give the other donors a realistic chance, and keep my conscience clear.
It has been a heart warming pleasure, everyone! thanks for the correspondence and immense help to the people who’ve lost literally everything. thanks to all the retweets and reposts, and for telling your friends. You all have huge hearts.
Total P221,625 ($5227)
Ps. If I’ve made a mistake in tallying, misspelled names, or if I missed a donation, please let me know! firstname.lastname@example.org. My complaints department staff will address your concerns as soon as possible. exchange rate used: $1=P42.4 as per redcross email receipts.
Pps. Thank you to the inventor of spell check.

Hello Art collectors and comic fans!
Get a *Chance* to Win 1(ONE) full 11x17 commission from me by bidding anything over $50 usd at http://ushare.redcross.org.ph/ (Yolanda/Haiyan). Email me receipt/proof of an executed donation at email@example.com subject: “Art Charity Donation” and I’ll make a sweet drawing for you IF you are the highest donor. All donations will be initially done in secrecy to give everyone a fair chance. All bids are final of course, and non-refundable. this is not similar to ebay bidding so donate the best you can, no need to wait. even if you don’t win, you’ll make a difference;) You may augment your initial bid. In case of a tie, earlier donation wins. Art quality will be the same as my Batman and Death drawings that I did recently (see recent facebook/twitter posts)
I NEVER do mail-in commissions so this is an unusual chance, I’ll mail it anywhere in the world, my dime. And no, I will not outbid you. Reastically, if you want a real chance of winning, you may have to bid higher than $50. Whatever you bid, you know where it went, win or lose.
Thanks in advance to anyone donating and I hope this works out great for everyone. non-winning donors will be give a special mention and thanks by me. You are not guaranteed to win but you will be surely helping out lots of people. Highest bid will determined on the 22nd, NYC time.
PS. http://ushare.redcross.org.ph/ seem to have a limit of 10k pesos (roughly 250 usd), feel free to enter a transaction couple more times if you want;)

shaolinfingerjabs asked: Mr. Yu, as an aspiring comic artist I would love to know how you create such beautiful faces and get such absurd detail. Is any of it referenced? Or is it all from imagination and familiarity with the facial structure?
don’t reference! do as cartoonists do! draw from memory… Use reference to practice sure…. but memorize and do not depend on them too much
don’t copy photos. cartoon, not do portraits:) gluck!
