CAPS art auction

Here’s something very cool to check out. I’m sure most of my cartoonist pals are aware of the CAPS art auctions on ebay with proceeds going to help Stan and Sharon Sakai with their ongoing medical expenses.

Since many of us grew to love Stan’s Usagi Yojimbo when it ran in Critters, I chose to contribute the art from one of my Critters covers to the auction. The 1987 cover of Critters #15 was my first issue and the first appearance of my character the Blue Beagle. Because the original color work has long since deteriorated, I’ve included the printer’s acetate color separations with the line art. Also going up in this round are illustrations by Critter’s alums Mike Kazaleh and Stan Sakai himself. Here’s the link:


  1. Fantastic, Tim!
    Great art for a great cause.

  2. That is great in both ways. I met Stan when I was young and stupid(er), and he was a real gentleman. Glad to see so much love for the family.

  3. Thank you for this information!

  4. there are so many military antiques and they cover such as wide range of areas that it is often difficult to know how to begin a military antique collection medal honor.
