First, a very warm thank you for everyone who came to our kick off fundraiser! Nate and I raised, over the weekend, close to $1000 both online and at the party! Needless to say we're thrilled...below are some photos from the benefit...
We still need to raise a little more money...and we have some original art from the party for sale. Ill be posting it in bits and pieces as the week goes by. You can purchase it by hitting the donate button from one post down, entering the appropriate amount of money, and the artists name.
After the photos we have the first batch: a Lisa Hanawalt piece for $100, a Domatille Collardey drawing for $40 and a Nate Doyle original for $50. Have at it!

We'd love to see you at the party but we realize not all of you live in New York. Here's this handy tip jar.
While our artistic ambitions at Sweetheart are large, our financial needs are not impossible. So, really...anything helps! $10 really goes a long way with us.
Please join us for a fund raiser benefiting local cartoonists---Mollie Goldstrom and Nate Doyle! Both cartoonists have major new comics in the works---Goldstrom with "1883" and Doyle with "Crooked Teeth #5."
This is a fund raiser for upstart publisher Sweetheart books to gather some start up funds to put out Mollie's work in the format and volume it deserves....and for Nate to self-publish the latest issue of his beloved comic.
And it'll also be a really fun party! Live music! Cheap drinks! Original art for sale! Supporting the local arts community! How could you miss something like this? Isn't this the reason you live in New York in the first place?? OK we will see you there right? OK cool!
Starts at 9pm on December 4th (that's right...the night before Desert Island/Picturebox's Brooklyn Comix Fest)! $5-10 suggested donation. Yeah, you can come for free but c'moonnnnnn....
take the L train to the jefferson stop. The party will be at:
538 Johnson Ave, Apt. #210
