Charity Star Wars eBay art auction to help fellow artist Conny Valentina!!!

(UPDATE: 7/1/19: Hey everybody- I sold about half the pieces and have re-listed what’s still available in the links below…)

Hey there boys and girls, I’m reaching out to you guys because a fellow artist could really use some help.

Her name is Conny Valentina and she recently lost everything, (her home, her cats and a huge, near-priceless art collection), in a terrible fire in her native Australia

I don’t know Conny personally, but I do know a bit about losing everything and having to start over from scratch- and it f’ing sucks… it’s not an experience I would wish on anyone, (much less a fellow artist), so I wanted to do something to help:

My first big art job after I loved to LA was designing statues, toys and mini busts for Gentle Giant Ltd. I designed most of their Star Wars line from ‘04 to ‘06. I recently found a cache of the original art/design sheets I did for many of those pieces. They’re all in pencil, which is kind of a big deal for me because not long after that, I went all-digital and never looked back.

I decided to put many of the originals on eBay to raise some cash for Conny. I could sure use your help getting the word out to get some eyes, and bids, on these auctions…
