MILTON KNIGHT: AN ARTIST SURVIVES

$14,796 of $18,000 goal

Raised by 406 people in 8 months
Hello. I am Milton Knight.



I have been a professional cartoonist since 1980, and have done some things you might have seen. My comics and cartoons have been in HEAVY METAL, NATIONAL LAMPOON, greeting cards and record covers. I have worked on projects based on well known characters like NINJA TURTLES and MIGHTY MOUSE. My independent comics include HUGO and MIDNITE THE REBEL SKUNK. I conceived the characterization of the villain Robotnik on the ADVENTURES OF SONIC THE HEDGEHOG series and I directed four cartoon shorts for the TWISTED TALES OF FELIX series on CBS.
I had a serious nervous breakdown in 1996, and was down and out for two years. By then, the animation profession had changed a lot and it was if I had never been in it. I have survived in meager fashion up to today.
I am being suddenly evicted from my home for seven years for reasons still suspect to me and those close to me. I have initiated investigation, but there is no doubt that however it turns out, I will have to leave within their 60 day deadline. I am in need of funds for moving, storage and relocation, as well as legal funding if I decide to go that far.
Pledges over 20$ will receive, depending on the amount, sketches, drawings or paintings that I have already done as my thanks.
Please visit my art site at miltonknight.net or my blog at miltonknight.blogspot.com if you want to learn more about me & my work.

My life here has been pretty sweet. All I have to do is put aside the circumstances that brought me here. I wouldn't have had one without the other...

Very different from the managment of the old building.
"Final steps are unfolding at this minute regarding the lighting upgrade and siding. All siding, soffit, fascia, gutter, and downspout work should be completed by Friday, November 30, 2018. The upper and lower level temporary lights will be replaced with the new LED lights shortly after the metalwork is done. This portion of the project will be completed by then. Minor work will continue after that to ensure all issues have been addressed, weather permitting.
Thank you for your patience with this project and its many phases. We are on the home-stretch with these upgrades and improvements!"
They're more than running dogs for a slumlord. They give a damn and do something about it!
Thank You All for Your Support!
