This thread is for bidding on a ONE OF A KIND GM Berrow / Leekfish art piece, as being auctioned on The Old Grey Mare Episode 6 (Con Orgs). Details are at greymare.net/charity/episode6/ !
ALL BIDDING WILL BE CONDUCTED VIA PUBLIC COMMENTS IN THIS THREAD. To bid, simply respond to this thread with your bid! Each bid must be higher than the current high bid by at least $10.)
Short summary: The winning bidder will be able to provide a (G-rated!) prompt for any pony-related situation. Official pony author G. M. Berrow will write approximately a half page of prose on that topic (note: It will NOT be considered canon! Sorry, fancolts ), and artist will illustrate it. Both artist and author will sign the completed product, which will be sent, framed, to the winner.
It will take several months to have the writing, artwork, printing, signatures and framing completed, so to the winner: please be patient. This is a one-of-a-kind art piece requiring the coordination of show staffers, artists, agents and LOTS and LOTS of shipping and handling. The wait will be well worth it! This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
All funds collected will be donated to EQUALITY NOW (www.equalitynow.org/) per the choice of Ms. Berrow and Ms. Leekfish. Receipts from payments will be provided to Ms. Berrow and Ms. Leekfish.
Please increase bids in at least $10 increments. Should the highest bidder be unable to pay within 24 (was 12, now 24-- this is a lot of money, folks!) hours of the auction ending, the next highest bidder will be selected, and so on, until a bid is successfully paid.
May the highest bidder win!
