Thought Bubble 2016: 1st-6th November!


Thought Bubble Charity Art Auction 2015 by thoughtbubblefestival

Hey gang!

Last year, at Thought Bubble 2014′s convention, we ran our regular Sketching Spotlight event, where 8 brilliant artists came up on stage and had a chat with Peter Doherty about their approach to comics while drawing live for our awesome audience. Because comic artists are all shining beacons of human spirit, they all agreed to let us auction off the sketches they produced, and donate all the proceeds to The Barnardo’s Charity. We’d like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to all those magnificent people for their time and generosity, and (with your help) we hope to be able to raise a lot of money for a great cause.

You can see a preview of all the pieces below (click to embiggen), with full details of the sketches underneath, as well as a link to the individual items’ listing pages, or for videos of the Sketching Spotlights where the pieces were drawn, please visit our YouTube channel.

The auction will take place on eBay and will run for 10 days from 10am Monday 26th January until 10am on Thursday 5th February, with bidding open to people worldwide. We’d really appreciate it if as many as you could spread the word as possible, so we can raise a whole bunch of money for a good cause, and find some new homes for some wonderful artwork!

(all artwork A4 in size, full information available on individual item listing pages, live from 10am – Monday 26th January 2015 via http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/thoughtbubblefestival worldwide shipping available)

The artists involved all kindly donated their sketches to TB to auction to raise money for Barnado’s, so it’s a chance to get some top comic art and support a much-needed charity at the same time.
