Spiderman Art Auction (source: Newsarama)

Just got the 411 from the Hero Initiative of some interesting news:

Artist Josh Medors has been struggling with cancer for awhile, with groups like the Hero Initiative and BOOM! Studios helping whenever it could. But this story is even more amazing: Josh’s condition has brought a new artist into the fold — his 10-year-old son, Garth. Garth’s favorite artist is David Finch, and so when his father was able to obtain a printed blue line of Spider-Man, Garth began what hopefully will be a long stretch of inking.

So the story continues: Garth’s first instinct: to put the art online to benefit his father’s cause. “This is the first time Garth has showed any interest in art,” Josh wrote the Hero Initiative. “After Garth finished inking the piece he came to me and said ‘Mom I want to put it up for auction to help Dad fight his cancer.’” You can check it out here — but if there’s a Right Reason for art… this is it.
