Ken Hurt Artwork to Raise Money for Peace Fund

 The Motor City Comic Con May 17th-19th 2013.

Actor/Director Adrian Paul (Highlander TV & Films) and Comic Artist Ken Hunt (Godsend, Femforce, Bloodlines) Have teamed up to help raise money through The PEACE Fund, a charity founded by Adrian Paul, for Eli Olsen of Escondido, CA. Eli can't enjoy pizza or similar treats like other boys his age. Most of his nutrition comes from a tube that's connected directly to his heart, diverting food around his digestive system. He has been dealing with a chronic condition called "Hereditary Pancreatitis" as well as Cystic Fibrosis and Celiac Disease.

To help raise money for Eli's life-saving islet cell transplant, Adrian Paul will be selling limited edition prints, created with artwork by Ken Hunt, at his table for only $20.00 each (additional donations welcomed). The prints will be limited to 50, and hand numbered. Once purchased, Adrian and Ken will both be happy to autograph the print. As a bonus, Ken Hunt will be offering, for anyone who purchases the print and brings it to his table, to do head shot sketches of a character of their choice for only $5.00. The original artwork for the print will be put on silent auction at the show. The original artwork will be accompanied by a specially numbered and autographed print. The winning bidder will also receive a free, original 9x12 sketch of their choice of character by Ken Hunt, as well as the winner's choice of three free prints from Ken's collection.

All monies from the purchase of the prints and the sale of the original artwork will go to help Eli. More information on Eli and the PEACE Fund's efforts to help him can be seen here:
