On Monday Mississippi Riverkings’ forward Matt Summers (the 2010-2011 “Assists for Autism” spokesperson) stopped by the bat-cave (my studio) to check out the progress of the art.
I’m doing 20 9″x12′ marker illustrations of each of the players and mascots for their autism charity auction. Fans can bid on the art at RiverKings home games through Saturday, March 19– which will be the 2nd annual “RiverKings Art for Autism” reception, 5:30 p.m. at the DeSoto Civic Center in Southaven, MS. Reception tickets are $25 and include admission to the silent auction, food, and a game ticket for that evening’s 7:05 p.m game against the Texas Brahmas.
“Art for Autism” allows approximately 40 local kids with autism the opportunity to creatively express themselves through different art mediums. For more info check out the Riverkings news page.
Keep an eye out center ice for a video of me drawing the players shown up on the scoreboard during upcoming Riverkings home games.
Also be sure to check out the upcoming autism art exhibit at the DeSoto Art Council’s art house in Hernando, MS in April.
Nicki and I hope to see you there!
