|11.24.2013 – Art with Heart has pulled an impressive collection of talented individuals from the Philippine comic community and Urban Lifestyle (group of visual, street and graphic artists) doing one goal help raise funds from the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.
The Philippines have great talented individuals and when it comes to the “Bayanihan” spirit everyone pulled together to mount an effort to help. The event organized by Fully Booked with Comic Odyssey and Vinyl on Vinyl made it happen on a Saturday.
The day started in the morning until the wee hours of the night where the last men and women standing trying to finish each sketch or art. This was similar two years ago when the same organizers has Vinyl + Splash but minus the festive vibe.
This was immediately announced after Komikon 2013 and this was a rare event where both worlds of art unite to raise a staggering PhP 305,690.00 pesos.
The total amount breakdown amount and acknowledgement for the contributions from LEINIL YU (PhP 68,000.00), GERRY ALANGUILAN (PhP 23,000.00), STEPHEN SEGOVIA (PhP 19,000.00), CARLO PAGULAYAN (PhP 17,000.00), and Charlie Adlard (PhP 100,000.00). The combined donation with Fully Booked and initial proceeds will be given to GMA KAPUSO FOUNDATION.
The contributions from Vinyl on Vinyl are not yet included but all artworks will be auctioned through Facebook and eBay. If you happen to miss the event yesterday check out the images below…
