Image donated by Ian Spanier for the Friends of Bob Benefit Art Auction.
New York City, award-winning advertising and editorial photographer Ian Spanier has donated a couple images to the Friends of Bob Benefit Art Auction, an online auction featuring illustration and photography from a wide array of artists, all to benefit Design Director Robert Newman. Newman fell ill about a year ago and like many freelancers had some difficulties dealing with the high costs of medical bills. The art community came together to help a friend in need. See more on the Friends of Bob Benefit Art Auction Tumblr page for links to the auction. There will be a party at the Society of Illustrators on Thursday, May 29th for the benefit.
