On the heels of the annual Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon, we wanted to keep the fundraising efforts going for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. So, we asked Charles to give us one of his sketches from the sketchbook he travels with to auction off. We’ve posted drawings from the sketchbook before on this blog, so you might already know that he keeps it with him all the time….drawing new ideas…doodling…experiment, etc. We asked him if we could auction one of the sketches and he gave us the one below.
It’s pictured below and is created with acid-free pigmented ink from Japanese Zig Markers. Some of the highlights were done with regular ballpoint pen. The piece measures 8.5″ x 11″ and will come fully framed with a personal dedication on the back from Charles Fazzino.
Here’s the way the auction will work. We will accept bids until 12:00 noon on Sunday, October 4th. The minimum bid is $2,000 and the sketch will be awarded to the highest bidder. It’s a blind auction so you will not know what others have bid until the auction has ended. In the event that more than one person places the winning bid, a random drawing will be held to determine the buyer who has the right to purchase the sketch. In that case, runners-up will be given second chance offers to purchase other available Fazzino original sketches.
50% of the proceeds from the sale of this sketch will benefit the Muscular Dystophy Association.

Thank you and happy bidding!
