PawPet Fund Raiser Auction [Oct. 29th, 2007|12:06 am]
The Official LJ of FPS (and other dumb things)

I have not done a furry 
commission in well over 6 years.
However! To help out my pal's on FPS.
This one time only, I will offer a "Acrylic on Canvas." Painted with Medium Retarder.
(Looks like an Oil Painting) Framed.
Much like the Lion Painting that sold for $1,300.00 at AC 2003. 20" x 15" (ish)
Or the one you see of YappyFox in the back of the living room during the subservient segments.
One character, formal portrait
, w' background via your description.
The auction bids will be the comments to this post.
Do not comment in the auction thread please.
Make fresh comment threads.

Highest Donation will win. (Payment in advance as I trust none of you!) ;)
100% of the Money will go towards
FPS bills.
Rating G to PG-13 (Clean to very sassy) ;)
Your Bid must trump the last bid by $10 increments
Auction will close at 10:30pm EST during the Fundraiser show on 11/11/07

There you go. Happy Bidding! :)
Herbie (Mutt)

I would have to say, this is definately a BIG thing your doing to help the show man. Kudos to you. Ive always been curious about that painting too. The shadows and highlighting on it are very impressive. I thought it was an oil painting. =3

Freaking awesome! (although I will definetly be outbid (darn being an art student sometimes))

By the way, what are the ways in which donations can be paid? (i.e. Paypal only? Money orders?)

"Auction will close at 10:30pm EST during the Fundraiser show, End of November (Actual date info TBA)"

So it will end during a show (meaning also not during MFF). They're not sure when they want to do it specifically because if they don't do it in the next 2 weeks (4th or 11th), then it'll end up happening on the 25th which is right after the start of the holiday shopping season.

I'm not old enough to pay anything myself, but I'll 'think' about paying lots. That works too right?

Dook? Oh geez, this is what I get for missing last night's episode, I guess. Is it Help Raise Funds for FPS time already?

As a side note, someone bid 800.00 so far. Thats spiffy. Good luck with whoever bids.

Maybe you could auction off the old G4 tower too.
Just think of all the fabulous bits that have passed through that thing!

You know, I COULD place a bid for this item...but knowing you and the rabid fans who will damn near give ANYTHING (literally) to own a piece of your artwork, I figure I've already been outbid several times over. :-P

But, I hope this raises a TON of money for the show! We need to show Yappy we care about this program! :-D

Hey you know the saying! Bid high bid often! If nobody else bids it's not going any higher ;) This is a fund raising auction. And last time I thought the same thing, and figured I wouldn't win but put in a bid for the heck of it, I ended up paying $1200 or so for a certain set of pieces of foam seat cutouts

What about painting it live during the show if the bid gets high enough?

Possibly. However we will not know who wins till th show is over.
I coudl try to do some of it on camera the week after if I am not needed to puppet.
But I am more interested in making the art as good as it can be without the distraction of being on camera.
Not looking for spotlight. Just good artz :)
