Comic book artists support Black Lives Matter with commissions

Help support #BlackLivesMatter with these comic book artist commission opportunities.

As the George Floyd protests continued over the weekend many folks, AIPT included, took to Twitter for a call to action to help organizations and charities that support Black Lives Matter. That includes comic book artists, a few of which aimed to support the Black Lives Matter movement through art commissions.

Below are just a few commission opportunities you can take part in to help support #BlackLivesMatter. Note that the number of commissions the artists may take on may run out soon.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

 

Speaking to Adam Gorham, he informed me he’s been commissioned to draw around 40 pieces reaching an estimated $2,000 donated to the Black Lives Matter movement. Gorham also noted Tom Reilly and Michael Walsh reached around $2,000 each, respectfully.

The response from the comic book community has been great with comic writers, artists, and editors taking to Twitter to voice their concern and stance on the situation. Companies did as well, like Marvel Studios who tweeted (see below) a strong statement as they stand against racism.

It doesn’t take a commission to support the Black Lives Matter movement or any of the other foundations in need. You can donate to Black Lives Matter here and the Minnesota Freedom Fund here, just to name two.
