MILTON KNIGHT: AN ARTIST SURVIVES

$13,517 of $18,000 goal

Raised by 355 people in 5 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.

Happy Day! I found a mover that's much less expensive and has better reviews!!

Infinite thanks for your generosity. It's embarrassing, but I'm thinking I low-balled my GoFundMe. I didn't know I'd be going cross country, didn't reckon on having to buy a (used) car and the movers will probably charge more than their estimate (almost $9000). Believe me, I stretch every dollar. Please share. Thanks, Milt

Dear Supporters,
I am raising my goal. I was on the verge of throwing out 50 years of artwork last night just because I am finding the moving costs to be more than I expected. I've had estimates between $7000-$9000, and I've been warned it might go up from there. Plus there is storage to be paid, and naturally I've got to pay an advance on the apartment rent. I am going about this "adventure" as inexpensively as possible, but the services I need to make it there aren't making it inexpensive for me!
So if you can see your way to continue to support me, I trust I will emerge victorious, giving you better art than ever. I'm sure working to get there!!

Yours Truly,
Milt
