Pen to paper

A few weeks ago, Tom Rafferty put together a pre-it@cork 2006 conference dinner attended by Hugh MacLeod of gapingvoid fame.

In June he did this cartoon. I asked him would he consider doing an all male version (or man-on-man if you'd rather). He did. At the dinner I asked if he would sign an A3 sized print, and he agreed. He also did an original art work on another A3 sized print (with the cartoon in A4 size printed on an A3 sheet... it's hard to explain).

The plan is that these signed cartoons will be auctioned off by the Southern Gay Men's Health Project as part of their art auction due to be held in June 2007 (probably in the Crawford Art Gallery). As is traditional in all Irish charity auctions, drinks are served during the bidding.

Hopefully you'll hear more about it as the date approaches, but if you're interested call in to the SGMHP offices and see if you want to bid.

take care (and bid high),
