As we look ahead to next week's season, and possibly series, finale there's a great chance to own a one of a kind piece of Futurama art. Bongo comics legend and former Futurama art director Bill Morrison is auctioning off an original piece of Futurama art in aid of Tiny Loving Canines, a non-profit dog rescue in Simi Valley, California. It's also signed by the ENTIRE cast, Bill, Lee Supercinski, David X Cohen & Matt Groening! Here's some info!
FUTURAMA COMIC-CON PANEL - ORIGINAL ART! AUTOGRAPHED BY THE CAST! GOOD NEWS EVERYONE! Here’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of Futurama and Comic-Con history! This huge original artwork was drawn by Bill Morrison (Art Director on the original run of Futurama, Bongo Comics cartoonist, etc.) as a prop for the 2013 Futurama Panel at Comic-Con International, San Diego! The artwork was used as the punch line in a drawing competition between Futurama and Simpsons creator Matt Groening and Futurama animation director Edmund Fong. At the end of the contest, Matt pulled out the drawing as if he had done it in just a few seconds. It got a great reaction from the crowd, but ultimately Matt was tried as a cheater in a mock trial and sentenced to death by Snu snu. Here is a link to the video of the actual drawing competition. This amazing original drawing measures 36” X 48” and was done in Sharpie marker on gatefold foam core board. (Please note, the gatefold board is factory hinged to fold open, so there are vertical seams in the art on the left and right sides.) After the panel, the art was signed by the entire Futurama cast, including Billy West, Katey Sagal, John DiMaggio, Maurice LaMarche, Lauren Tom, Phil Lamarr, Tress MacNeille, and David Herman, as well as Producer Lee Supercinski, Executive Producer David X. Cohen, and creator Matt Groening! Oh, and the actual artist of the piece Bill Morrison signed it too! The entire proceeds for this auction will benefit TLC (Tiny Loving Canines) a non-profit dog rescue in Simi Valley, California.
The auction runs for one week so go here and grab a once in a lifetime piece of Futurama art!! It looks incredible!
