MILTON KNIGHT: AN ARTIST SURVIVES

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.
