Michael Giacchino

This is a brand new copy of The Art of Inside Out donated from the collection of actor Paul Dooley. The shrink wrap was removed only in order to have Inside Out’s score composer, Michael Giacchino, sign it on the inside. Giacchino jokingly makes note that the book has nothing to do with the music in the film by writing “Why is there no music in this book???”

Michael Giacchino’s career has been on fire lately as the composer for the last three Star Trek movies, “Jurassic World,” “Doctor Strange,” and the recently released “Star Wars: Rogue One” movie! He won the Best Score Academy Award for his beautiful music in Pixar’s “Up.”

Paul Dooley was the voice of Sarge the Jeep in both of Pixar’s “Cars” movies, but you also may know him from several Robert Altman movies including “Popeye” where he played Wimpy. Paul has also been in movies such as “Insomnia,” “Runaway Bride,” “Waiting For Guffman,” and “Sixteen Candles.” Paul had some animation books in his collection that he donated to the NCS Foundation.

Paul Dooley and Michael Giacchino

We are excited to offer this great brand new hardcover copy of “The Art of Cars 2” donated from the collection of actor Paul Dooley.

Paul was the voice of Sarge the Jeep in both of Pixar's "Cars" movies, but you also may know him from several Robert Altman movies including “Popeye” where he played Wimpy. Paul has also been in movies such as “Insomnia,” “Runaway Bride,” “Waiting For Guffman,” and “Sixteen Candles.” Paul has signed this book, and as an added bonus, we had the score composer, Michael Giacchino, sign it as well. Michael’s career has been on fire lately as the composer for the last three Star Trek movies, “Jurassic World,” “Doctor Strange,” and the recently released “Star Wars: Rogue One” movie! He won the Best Score Academy Award for his beautiful music in Pixar's "Up."

Jeffrey Brown

We are excited to offer to you this original page from the book Darth Vader and Friends by the effervescent Jeffrey Brown published in the spring of 2015. You are bidding on Brown’s original art for page 17 drawn with ink and markers on a 6x6” piece of illustration board. The reverse side of the art contains Brown’s handwritten notes of the dates on which he drew the various stages in his creative process, along with a little character doodle and his signature with the completion date of 9/18/14.

Beginning a few years back with Darth Vader and Son, Brown’s humorous take on the Star Wars universe was a refreshing look at the human side of the Sith Lord’s relationship with a young version of his son, and struck a chord with judges for the Eisner Awards who gave one to him for Best Humor Publication. The book proved to be very popular with Star Wars fans, that Brown was soon working on several sequels winning another Eisner for Vader’s Little Princess

Our thanks to Jeffrey for donating this original art to our fundraiser.





C.F. Payne

This mini masterpiece comes to us courtesy of one of America’s premiere illustrators, C.F. Payne. This mixed media illustration was created on a 8.75x12.25” piece of illustration board, and the art itself measures 5.5x5.75”. This is a fantastic piece in Payne’s unmistakeable style, and would be a delight to add to your illustration collection. Signed “C.F.” in the lower left corner.

C.F. Payne is widely respected for his craft whose artwork has graced the covers of Time Magazine, Reader’s Digest, Sports Illustrated, The New York Times Book Review and Sunday Magazine, MAD Magazine, der Spiegel, U.S. News and World Report, The Atlantic Monthly, Texas Monthly, Boys’ Life and more. He has been commissioned to paint countless politicians, authors and entertainers. He has illustrated many children’s books in recent years, including those by celebrity authors John Lithgow and Steve Martin. Despite his proliferation, Payne also finds time to be the Director of MFA Illustration Program at the University of Hartford in Connecticut training young minds and hands to carry on the tradition of excellence in illustration.

Bruce Timm

Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you a Bruce Timm original drawing. Measuring at 8.5x11”, Timm’s signature style is on full display with this ink drawing on white paper of Vampirella. This terrific portrait by one of our modern day masters will soon belong to the highest bidder. It is signed “B.T.” in the lower right corner.

Few artists come along whose work can influence a generation. Bruce Timm has not only influenced one generation, but several generations after hitting the scene hard with his version of Batman in 1992 with Batman: The Animated Series. You can see his style emulated time and again in the work of other character designers and cartoonists. Ever since the animated Batman, Timm has helped mold the rest of the animated DC universe to much acclaim with other versions of Batman, Superman, and the Justice League. Somehow he also found the time to work in comics, which have been equally embraced by fans big and small. Timm often creates drawings like this one just for the joy of it that have found their way into art collections around the world.
