Today was a particularly exciting afternoon in the midtown offices of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. Fan Favorite artist Steve “The Dude” Rude dropped by to produce a one-of-a-kind painting, on the premises, for the Fund. As longtime admirers of the Dude’s work, it was a rare treat to watch him at work.
Presented below is the progression of the painting, so we can hopefully share the experience of watching one of the great talents in comics at work…
Big thanks to Steve Rude for dropping by and for being so generous with his time and his talents. It is appreciated more than we can say.
The finished piece (pictured below), is available for bidding at our eBay store. As always, the winning bid will be a donation that goes entirely towards the CBLDF and our First Amendment legal work.
