A bunch of really great artists are participating in a silent art auction. If you are in the L.A. area, I hope you participate for a really great cause.

The Poketo studio will hold a silent art auction titled, “F%#k Cancer! We Love Justin” to raise funds for the medical treatment of artist Justin Van Hoy. Over forty important Los Angeles artists will be donating their work, with more artists added to the roster daily. All proceeds will go directly to support Justin Van Hoy’s recovery. Those unfamiliar with Justin might not be as distant from him as perceived. As the art director for SWINDLE Magazine, and contributor of works for artists and brands such as OBEY, Roger Gastman, Cobra Snake, and more, Justin’s distinct and captivating work has been feeding our creative hunger for years. All are welcome to the event to acknowledge Justin and those who have been affected by cancer.
