Never mind Wolverine, everyone knows that Kitty Pryde is the X-Men that we all love the most. And nothing demonstrates that better than Portland, OR comic store Floating World's "Full of Pryde" benefit art auction.
The store is auctioning off amazing original sketches of Marvel's greatest mutant to benefit local charity the Oregon Hemophilia Treatment Center. Floating World's Jason Levian explains:
My good friend Douglas E. Sherwood (Oni Press) proposed a tribute show based around his favorite X-Men character, Kitty Pryde. His own personal experiences with having hemophilia his entire life also inspired him to make the show a fundraiser for the Hemophilia Treatment Center at OHSU. So we've asked dozens of comic artists, graphic designers, and illustrators to do their rendition of Kitty Pryde for our May Art Exhibit at Floating World Comics. The opening was a huge success and now we're making the original art from the show available through ebay auctions. 100% of the proceeds from these sales goes to the HTC department at OHSU.
These are just some of the pieces for sale; you can see more at the Full of Pryde blog. The drawings are currently on display at the awesome Floating World store, and the auctions are currently underway online here. Go, look, bid and help out.
