Thier next fundraiser is June 20th at Heroescon in Charlotte, NC. Cartoonists will be sketching on coasters which will be immediately auctioned off. An auction of larger art pieces will also take place depending on what is donated.

With Richard’s support, in 2012 TCDS  asked cartoonists across the country to draw his characters so the artwork that was compiled into a fundraising book and the artworkwas auctioned to raise additional money. Hundreds of cartoonists responded and sent artwork that was compiled in a book published by Andrews McMeel. You can buy it at most bookstores. The book has cartoons from many of Richard’s personal friends including Stephen Pastis (Pearls Before Swine), Sergio Aragones (Mad, Groo), Patrick McDonnell (Mutts), Pat Oliphant (Pulitzer Prize political cartoonist), Dave Kellet (Sheldon, Drive), Gene Weingarten and David Clark (Barney & Clyde), Mason Mastroianni (B.C.), Roger Langridge (Muppet Show comic book, Marvel’s Thor: The Mighty Avenger, Fred the Clown), Shannon Gallant (G.I.Joe), Michael Cavna (Washington Post), Steven Artley (Artleytoons), Barbara Dale and Steve Conley (Astounding Space Thrills, Bloop) and even Bill Watterson of Calvin and Hobbes fame. Many other fantastic cartoonists contributed, space doesn’t permit us to list them all, but we appreciate everyone’s contributions.
