Ryan Claytor, university professor, comics artist and pinball enthusiast is having an art auction to benefit The Ali Forney Center, which helps at-risk LGBTQ youth.
While I’m not able to attend the tournament, I feel strongly about there being greater representation for all people in pinball and would like to contribute in some way.
To that end, I’m going to auction off a piece of my original, hand-drawn, pinball artwork. Here are a few images I’ve drawn for various companies, events, and podcasts:

Act quickly, because the auction lasts until the end of June.
Here’s how it’ll work; simply place your bid as a comment in this thread. The highest bidder in this thread will get their choice of any piece of original art shown in the video above. You’ll send your money directly to Michael Raisler (Mean Queen Tournament Director) and once I receive confirmation that your payment has been received, I’ll personally mail the artwork directly to you. The bidding period will last from now until the end of Pride Month (end of June 2018).
This art auction was inspired by The Mean Queen Pinball Tournament that had occurred on June 23rd and by all accounts was successful. It was held in New York City at Jackbar. The event also supported the Ali Forney Center. 100% of the entry fees and donations were given to the Center.
