Auction to benefit injured artist

Saturday, November 12th, 2011

I’m donating a piece of work from one of my books, “Magnets,” to an auction in Ireland. This is to assist a Russian artist who is married to an Irishman and living in Dublin.¬†She was viciously attacked by a burglar and the attacker cut off most of the fingers from her drawing hand. You can read about her here in the Irish Times. The doctors were able to reattach her middle finger but not the others. Adams Blackrock auction house is setting up an auction to raise some money to help with her rehabilitation.

This is the piece I’m donating along with a signed copy of the book (click for a large image):
