Ask Me Anything #39

As always, the first Monday of the month means it's time for "Ask Me Anything."

You can ask me any questions you'd like, whether it's about my work, opinions, influences, favorites, least favorites, or anything else you think I might have an answer for. Questions can be posted in the comments section below, and I'll either answer them there, or in a separate post sometime later in the month.

Please take the time to view the previous questions so that we don't wind up with a lot of repetition. I've been asked a lot of good, thought provoking questions in the past as well as some really banal ones, all of which I tried to answer. You can see the previous questions by visiting Ask Me Anything  #1#2 ,  #3#4#5#6 , #7 , #8#9,  #10,  #11,  #12 , #13#14,  #15 , #16#17 , #18 , #19,  #20,  #21#22,  #23#24#25#26#27#28#29#30#31#32#33#34#35#36#37, and #38.  Answers not found following the questions can be found in the archives section for each associated month under Ask Me Anything.

Now ask away.

Stan Sakai Benefit Auction

The Comics Art Professional Society (CAPS) has put together a benefit auction to help Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai and his wife, Sharon, pay medical bills accruing due to Sharon's current debilitating illness. The auction is ongoing with a changing offering of original artwork from a great roster of outstanding artists. My own piece (seen above) is currently in the auction, which can be seen here. Please take a look, and also see what else is being offered. If you can, please purchase a piece for this deserving couple.

There will also be a benefit book featuring a number of the pieces from the auction (including mine) which will be made available at this year's San Diego Comic Con. I will post about how to obtain a copy when that information becomes available.

Don't forget to keep checking the auction as more artwork will be added regularly. You can also help by purchasing Usagi Yojimbo books and other products via the links below.
