MILTON KNIGHT: AN ARTIST SURVIVES

$4,946 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 129 people in 29 days
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.

Some people assume my home situation is because of money trouble. Although I can't afford a lot (meaning what is "normal" now), I could afford this rent and paid on time for 7 years. True to their form, the landlord refuses to discuss the reasons for my being "vacated" with the newspaper. The thing that makes me angry at this moment is that I really think it is due in part to the obsessive hatred my neighbor has for me. He's been here 18 years, through the stays of at least two previous tenants, and he & the owner are obviously running in tandem. Please continue to help.

Packing, and finding the atmosphere of the house depressing & disturbing. The neighbor, the management, the owner: all turdballs. I don't want to be around here much longer.
Thank You for helping me get out of here!

Thanks to everyone! I reserved my storage space today. Will start putting stuff in tomorrow!

Would I be taking a chance if I casually mention to the management company that they are the crummiest characters I ever met? They won't be giving me a letter of recommendation anyway...
