Full of Pryde at Floating World Comics

(click for larger view)

Floating World Comics in Portland, OR, is hosting a charity art show and auction called Full of Pryde. The show's theme is the X-Men character Kitty Pryde. My Kitty Pryde (seen above) is sort of a mash-up of Ernie Bushmiller's Nancy comic strips and issue #143 of X-men comics. For those of you unfamiliar with that comic, the basic plot is that Kitty Pryde, who has the power to "phase" through solid objects (like walk through walls), is left home alone on X-mas eve and is chased around the X-mansion by a monster called N'Garai.

All artwork will be available as 11 x 17 posters that will be sold for $5. Most original artwork (including mine) will be available as part of a charity auction. The show is a not-for-profit fundraiser, 100% of the proceeds will go to the hemophilia research department at OHSU.

The show is curated by Jason Leivian and Douglas Sherwood and will include Kitty Pryde art by a lot of cartoonists working in the comics industry today: Rob G, Brandon Graham, Michael Deforge, Ross Campbell, Nikki Cook, Zachary Baldus, Zack Soto, Corey Lewis, Vasilis Lolos, Becky Cloonan, Chuck BB, Bryan O'Malley, Hope Larson, Farel Dalrymple, Joelle Jones, Brian Hurtt, Steve Rolston, Robbi Rodriguez, and many more!

The event opens either May 7th, or May 9th. I'm unclear on that, but will post more info when it's closer to that time.

Here's a page from the original X-Men #143 by John Byrne and Chris Claremont:

Thanks everyone!

Andrei- I don't know if the auction will be online. I'll post more info when I have it. Or you could contact Floating World and ask them.

Chris- I know... I couldn't resist.
