(Victor Valley)– Linebreakers, the largest comic book and hobby shop in the High Desert, has brought together the talents of seven local artists for an Art Drive that will help support the artists, as well as help purchase COVID-19 supplies for St. Mary Medical Center in Apple Valley.
“We are doing this in an effort to help in the areas we can,” said Linebreakers’ Comic Book Specialist Denton Heath. “With publishers and comic releases at a standstill, freelance artists are not getting the same exposure and work as they were. We all know the dire situation for needed supplies at our local hospitals. So we combined the efforts together. Seven incredible local artists completing seven original pieces of art on blank comic book covers, for auction.”
Artists include Joshua Cassara, Jason T. Smith, Cesar Flores, Justin White, Jenna Sparks, Aaron Bartling and Scott Kruger. 50% of the proceeds of each piece of original art will be given to the artist, and 50% will go directly to St Mary Medical Center for supplies to support their COVID-19 efforts. Cover artwork will be revealed beginning April 10th, with new reveals all week leading up to the auction kick off on Friday, April 17th. Auctions will be held on Linebreakers Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/linebreakers/) and will last until Sunday evening, April 19th.
