The bidding at Heritage Auctions actually opened on 27 May 2012, so I’m a bit late with this, obviously — although RCN did feature information about the auction back on 17 November 2011 — but anyway, not to worry: you still have until 10 June 2012 to make a play for a beautiful work of original art like this one, entitled “Queen Alice in Wonderland,” by cartoonist David Clark:

From the official auction announcement:
Team Cul de Sac was created to honor Richard Thompson, creator of the award-winning comic strip, Cul de Sac, after his recent Parkinson’s disease diagnosis. Cartoonists, artists, illustrators, and animators have donated original artwork for this auction, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting the Michael J. Fox Foundation to support Parkinson¹s research. The auction ends June 10 at 10:00 p.m. The artwork is also collected in a book, Team Cul de Sac: Cartoonists Draw the Line at Parkinson’s (Andrews McMeel Publishing), to be published June 5, 2012. A portion of the proceeds from the book will also be directed to the Michael J. Fox Foundation.
