1/1 Commission for Charity

I am doing a 1/1 commission that is now up for bidding on Please spread the word, it's for a good cause. Here's the link and all the details from the lisiting below...

Up for bid is a one of a kind commissioned piece of art by Dave Perillo.

 All proceeds of this auction will go to the Officer Christopher Reeves Fund. Officer Reeves (Millville Police Department, NJ) was killed in the line of duty on July 8th during a vehicle pursuit, in which the accused vehicle fled police, after striking another patrol car. The pursuit ended when the accused vehicle broad-sided Officer Reeves patrol car on the driver’s door, killing him instantly. Officer Reeves leaves behind a wife, Sue, who is also a Millville Police Officer, and a two year old son, Alex. Officer Reeves and I had worked on the same shift for the last two years prior to him going to the midnight shift two weeks before his tragic death. Officer Reeves was truly a wonderful man and a very good friend.

A few days ago I contacted Dave Perillo and asked if he would be able to donate a few existing pieces that we could auction off for the family.  Dave took it one step further and asked what I thought about auctioning off a commissioned piece, with the winner choosing whatever they wanted him to design.  Of course I accepted and was ecstatic that Dave would take the time out of his crazy schedule to do something like this for someone he did not know.
Winner will receive:
1 – 16X20 inch print on Archival Paper signed by Dave
1 – Hi-Res File of the designed art
Dave will do a commission of whatever you want (comic, movies, TV shows, your family dog…you name it*)
*With some limitations, so don’t ask him to draw every single Marvel character having tea with every DC character.  Try to keep your request to no more than 10 characters. Nothing explicit.
Please allow a few weeks for Dave to complete your art.  Remember, he is a very busy man and is taking the time to do this for a good cause.
