Water, Wind & Spent...

This past Friday night on the cold night in downtown Toronto, it was a warm and amazing experience with friends, family and everyone in the artist community who came out to support the Spent Pencils organized fundraiser Water & Wind for the Philippines relief funds. What you missed if you didn't get a chance to go was amazing auctioned art from many of SP family and other big names in the artist community, as well as amazing food and drinks, and an awesome after party as well. Granted I may have woken up a little heavy headed and with a lighter wallet, but it was totally worth it. And seeing everyone come together and bring some amazing work for charity is an awesome experience, a big thank you to all the artist who took the time and made some amazing art for charity. A lot of these are posted online, so be sure to check them out and I will be posting links to the pages of all the artist who took place in the show as well. If you see anything you like, be sure to contact your favorite artist and let them know. 

Here a few pictures from the evening as well, if you want to see more be sure to check out the Spent Pencils Facebook page, right here, a lot of our event pictures will be posted here, so be sure to check back often and share your Spent memories as well.






The years end is just around the corner but SP is not slowing down, with Ottawa Pop Expo next weekend and the Sketches for Pledges auction coming up, we still got plenty to do before we put this year to rest. And you can count on us to keep the momentum rolling into 2014, not slowing down anytime soon. Before I sign off, a big thanks to Kevin Briones for making this event happen in the first place, an amazing job for a great cause. You did an amazing job Cap'n Go! Also a big thank you to Celena "Pepper Pots" Ho for being amazing as always with helping us set up! And remember to check out all these amazing artist who took the time to donate and help out, they deserve the attention...
