ATTENTION HEROES :: Tommy Lee Edwards Wants Your Help!

Our buddy Tommy Lee Edwards is participating in Ride For Kids a charity motorcycle (tough!) ride, to benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. Tommy brings a lot to the table: besides being our buddy, he's also a tough-guy illustrator, both in comics (Bullet Points, The Question) and as one of the official Star Wars illustrators. As such, he has produced, with the support of Lucasfilm, the above sweet exclusive, limited edition print. From the site Tommy set up for this:

"Supporting the efforts of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, The Ride for Kids® works to find the cause of and cure for childhood brain tumors. This Motorcyclist's program also serves as a educational support program for patients, their families, and the medical community.

With every $30 donated to Ride for Kids through this website, you will be sent a limited-edition STAR WARS lithograph. Sticking with the theme at hand, Tommy Lee Edwards has illustrated a squad of Biker-Scouts taking a break between rides. The lithograph measures 15” x 30”, and is printed on an 80# cold-press museum-quality cover stock. All 300 prints are numbered and hand-signed by TLE.

I know how charity-minded our customers are, so I couldn't miss the chance to pass this along; ESPECIALLY as it includes a chance to get a sweet Star Wars print by one of the country's leading illustrators! And a sweet guy to boot, which never hurts.

You can get one of the prints here, or just straight up donate to the PBTF here.

Wow...If there's one thing I love more than charity...it's a biker scout. Just got back from the link, many thanks for the "heads up"...

I just ordered my lithograph. I can't wait to get it! Thanks for pointing this out to me. If I hadn't read your blog post about it, I wouldn't have noticed it in the Star Wars newsletter either and then I wouldn't have order it.

Shucks, guys--don't thank me, thank Tommy Lee! I'll bet if you take your lithographs to HeroesCon, he'll draw horns and moustaches and stuff on all the biker scouts. Which I presume will raise the collectible value? I could be wrong.
