Have you checked out The Pulse online art charity auction for Hurricane Sandy Relief? There are several awesome bundles of art, art-books, how to DVDs & even online workshops up for bid. I donated two charcoal drawings to Bundle #7, which includes pieces from 3 other artists. There is also original work from Angela Cartwright, Sarah Fishburn, Pam Carriker and many more contemporary artists for sale. 100% of  proceeds go to charity. The auction is hosted by Seth Apter's Altered Page blog &  ends Nov. 11 ..... so pop on over super-quick!
