I will draw my dudes and ladies doing the makeouts.  
I'm Shaenon K. Garrity, creator of the webcomics Narbonic, Skin Horse, Li'l Mell, and Smithson. Since I'm terrible at fanart, here's my offer: I will draw a slashy portrait of any two characters from my comics. Because I was going to sit around drawing my characters in tasteful yet suggestive homoerotic situations anyway, so why not do it for charity?

The exact content is open to discussion, but I tend to lean romantic or funny rather than outright pornographic. Black and white or color, your call.

Donations can be made to No on Prop 8, Equality California, or Marriage Equality USA.

Deadline for bidding: Saturday, October 18.

Minimum bid: $10.

I'm sending in a donation for $75 to No on Prop 8 anyway, because I'm outraged. Thank you for making me aware of this.
Statistical Outlier in All  Studies: brown hatchaiya on October 11th, 2008 07:46 pm (UTC)
... By which I mean, $75 is my bid, but I'm sending it regardless of whether I win. Gah, I'm exhausted and incoherent, lately.

Thanks! Although you didn't win the auction, in return for your donation, I'd like to do a B&W sketch for you. Please email me at me at shaenon dot com so we can work out the details.

Just wanted to state publicly that you rock. :)

FYI, also, shaenon at shaenon.com doesn't seem to work. I cc'd the last email addy I had for you, sbcglobal, but that was from a while ago.
Shaenon K. Garrityshaenon on October 30th, 2008 01:22 am (UTC)

Narbonic at sbcglobal.net ought to work.

  • I bid a $100 donation to Marriage Equality USA.
  • Following chaiya's admirable example, I will make this donation regardless of the outcome of the bidding.
  • I'm currently leaning toward Dr. Narbon/General Sal, but reserve the right to change my mind. Edited to add: Ooh, or maybe ANTONIO SMITH, FORENSIC LINGUIST/(grown-up) Sergio "Mr. Rosa" Mendoza. Or Gemma Thomas/Zeta Vincent; you like drawing punk girls, right? Anyway, someone clearly needs to outbid me so that I don't have to decide.

All right! Although you didn't win the auction, in return for your donation (and because I admit I'm curious to see what you end up choosing), I'd like to do a B&W sketch for you. Please email me at me at shaenon dot com so we can work out the details.
Q. Pheevrq_pheevr on October 20th, 2008 01:31 pm (UTC)

That's wonderful! Thank you so much—both for holding this auction in the first place, and for your generosity in offering sketches to more than just the winning donor! I'll be in touch by e-mail soon.

Well too late for me to get in on the actual bidding, but I sent a $50 donation to Equality California with you as the referrer.

Keep up the good work!
Jeffrey Channing Wellsjeffreycwells on October 13th, 2008 08:41 pm (UTC)
Too late? What happened to the 18th?
Shaenon K. Garrityshaenon on October 19th, 2008 04:46 am (UTC)

Okay! Although you didn't win the auction, in return for your donation, I'd like to do a B&W sketch for you. Please email me at me at shaenon dot com so we can work out the details.

ok, i spent SIX HOURS being billable today, so! $135 for artie and tip, for the gender/species/mindfuck of the year :)
Shaenon K. Garrityshaenon on October 19th, 2008 04:36 am (UTC)

Aaand we have a winning bid! Please email me at me at shaenon dot com so we can work out the details.
Renata Piperlyonesse on October 24th, 2008 09:26 pm (UTC)

Okay, bidding is now closed! Thanks very much to the winning bidder, lyonesse, and to everyone who pledged to donate to the cause whether or not they won. By my estimate, this little auction raised $360 total for marriage equality in California.

Huzzah!
