There's a fundraiser art show/auction tonight in downtown LA for a friend of mine, Justin Van Hoy. A number of notable artists have donated work and it's all to help a great cause. See TheDutchParty for other locations and info.

The great people at Poketo, along with Will Hays, Chris Bettig, and Zach Gibson have organized a fund raiser / emotional booster for one of our favorite people, Justin Van Hoy, who has been suffering and battling with Leukemia for quite some time now. He has just been released from being in the hospital for 3 months undergoing chemo for the 2nd time, radiation & a bone marrow transplant. Justin, and his amazing wife, Holly, are struggling physically, mentally and financially. We are organizing events for them to show our love and support all over the US, and we are organizing an evening here in Los Angeles on Friday June 5th at the Poketo Studio in downtown. We are going to have a silent art auction, featuring artworks generously donated by :
