New York Comic Con Charity Auction

April O'Neil. 2011. Watercolor, gouache, and acrylic on paper, 9 × 12″.

Would you like to own an original watercolor portrait? Are you going to the New York Comic Con? Are you willing to bid on it at the show? If you answered yes to all 3 questions, then let me know what character is your favorite in the comments section below. I'll paint the one with the most votes and post it on Monday.

This auction benefits St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, and the live auction will be held during the convention. You can see my contribution to last year's auction above. Thanks!

  2. Paolo, Can't thank you enough for doing this! If you want my vote I can't help but go for the obvious....DAREDEVIL!

  3. The more popular the character, the more it will raise for charity.

    Captain America would be my choice

  4. Yeah as much as I'd love to suggest characters I love they wouldn't fetch the money that the charity is trying to get so when in doubt, go Superman! I've gone to NYCC every year since 2009 but never gone to the charity auctions. I'll certainly try to go this year but I couldn't say if I could be able to bid, I'm guessing they go pretty high.

  5. Not my own choice by far, but I agree that it should be a more popular character, like Wolverine.

  6. I know everyone's saying the more popular character will raise more money, but it would be cool to see you paint The Great Machine or Mitchell Hundred from Ex Machina. Depends on your time, though.

    For pop's sake, I'd say Phoenix Cyclops.

  7. Iron Man would make a ton of money for the auction.

    I would love to see a Rocketeer though.

  8. Hmmm... this isn't making things any easier. Thanks for the input, though!

  9. Black Widow, though I'd bid on Daredevil as well.

  10. All right. Daredevil is taking the lead (albeit not by much). I'll paint it this weekend, so there's still time to vote. Thanks, everybody!

  11. It seems like I’m so late for this auction. Haha! Given the chance, I would vote for Ironman. Jeez, Robert Downey Jr. is just so hot. Haha! Anyway, I think any subject will do as long as we know that we are able help anyone through bidding your paintings.
