(Thanks to Matt Leone of 1up for the tip!)
Tis’ the season to give and one way to do so is through legitimate charitable organizations like the Red Cross. 1up.com is currently running a charity auction on eBay at the moment where they have various packages of bonafide hand-drawn artwork created by video game artists for various titles. The highest bidder on a package will get the artwork but also they will be giving to the Red Cross as the winning bid will be donated to them, part of it going towards continued efforts for Japanese disaster relief.
One of those pieces of artwork is actually from an arcade title we have discussed here a few times, Specular Interactive’s Dirty Drivin’. The sketch by Andrew Rai is of the Bone Wagon vehicle, which is a part of the Indie Bundle #2 and from the looks of it, I would say it’s the most detailed of the sketches shown. You can find the eBay auction for it here.And of course if you have the means, don’t hesitate to bid!
