Bid on the MicroVisions Auction and Come to Happy Hour

MicroVisions Auction and Happy Hour

For the past eight years, Greg Manchess, Dan Dos Santos, and I have asked a dozen friends to create a 5x7 artwork of their choosing. These miniatures are exhibited at the Society of Illustrators and then placed on auction with all proceeds going to the Society’s student scholarship fund.

Below is a preview of this year’s works. The eBay auction will go live on April 23rd and will end on May 2nd at 7pm.

[Then...you’re invited to happy hour!]

MicroVisions Charity Art Auction Now Running

Each year Greg Manchess, Dan Dos Santos, and I ask a dozen artists to create a 5x7 painting of their choosing. These miniatures are exhibited at the Society of Illustrators and then placed on auction with all proceeds going to the Society’s student scholarship fund. I’m excited to say that the auction is now up on ebay and will run until the evening of Sunday, May 6th. Here is an opportunity to own artwork at an affordable price and help some young illustrators at the start of their carreers.

Bidding is taking place here.

MicroVisions 5 auction

MicroVisions 5

MicroVisions 5 auction is now live on eBay.
Opening bids start at $50.00. Auction ends Wednesday, May 26th.

Each year, Dan Dos Santos and I ask about a dozen artists to create a 5x7 painting of their choosing. These miniatures are exhibited at the Society of Illustrators and placed on auction with all proceeds going to the Society’s student scholarship fund.

This year’s contributors pulled out all the the stops and created an amazing exhibit. A huge thank you to the artists that have given so generously of the time and talent: Scott Altmann, Scott Bakal, Rick Berry, Bill Carman, Jon Foster, Donato Giancola, Michael Kaluta, Tim O’Brien, Omar Rayyan, Allen Williams, and Boris Vallejo.

The Society Scholarships are among the illustrations industry’s toughest awards. Less than two hundred students are chosen to be in the exhibit from nearly 6,000 entries—about half of them earn cash awards. Not only do these awards help subsidize students financially, they also go a long way to boost the confidence of young artists (and their nervous parents) by proving their voices stand out amongst thousands of others. It’s never long before you start seeing the winners on their way to becoming the field’s biggest names—John Jude Palencar, James Jean, Tomer Hanuka, Dan Dos Santos and hundreds of others since the Scholarship’s inception in 1981.

For those of you in New York, the exhibit is on display at the Society of Illustrators through May 22nd.
