Happy Birthday to John Astin, born on March 30th!
John and I are auctioning off my cartoon of "Gomez" to help the Poe House and Museum in Baltimore.
Both of us are long-time supporters of the Poe House (both of us have played Poe!), and we're fighting to keep its doors open to the public, so we decided back on March 3rd (when this pic was taken), to sell or auction the cartoon off.
Here's the scoop:
Mark Redfield (actor, publisher, Monsterpalooza Magazine) and actor John Astin with Redfield's cartoon "TISH! THAT'S FRENCH!", On March 3rd, 2012.
The framed cartoon in now being auctioned to help raise some funds for the Poe House and Museum in Baltimore, a passion project for both Astin and Redfield. The City of Baltimore cut the funding of the Poe House in 2010, and its operating expense now come from monies generated from events, donations and gifts.
Mr. Astin autographed "Gomez" cartoon just above the shoulder. The cartoon goes to the winning bidder with the frame as seen at this event on March 3rd, 2012.

On behalf of John, me and the Poe House--thanks for looking and thanks for sharing with your friends!
