Bob Wiacek Fund

$20,544 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 376 people in 38 months
My name is Bob Wiacek and I have been a comic book/graphic artist for over 40 years. It has been difficult but I've managed to get through the tough times yet since my wife passed away over 3 years ago I have to live on a very modest income which I have been able to do until now.

I have lost more than a week of work from a injury to my arm do to a bad fall. Naturally it will heal but that is going to take time and I'm seriously getting behind in my bills and taxes which I have to pay by the end of the month of September '15. I live with my son who has a job and helps out when he can.

Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated and as an added incentive,  for those who send in $40 or more I will do a drawing of any comic book character you like after I get ahead on my commissions. More detailed commisssioned drawings can be discussed at a later point. 

I want to thank all of you who have taken the time to read this.

Hello everyone. I'm taking this opportunity to thank all who have helped me in my our of need. I will be getting to those of you I owe drawings as soon as possible and I might point out that Paul Smith has graciously offered to help me by donating some sketches so for that I want to thank him. It looks like some lucky people out there will be receiving a Smitty drawing and possibly a few inked by yours truly.
Things are better right now though still a bit tight and I hope by working hard I will get over this financial hump. If there are any who wish to help please do. Anything you donate will be appreciated and used wisely.
I can't find the appropriate words to thank all who have helped me. Many articulate people have put it so well in the past but I will say I consider myself blessed to know you all.
Lastly if you are at a convention I am attending, please feel free to come by my table and inform me you donated to GoFundMe and I'll get to your sketch.
The best to you all.

Hi Bob! I currently have a gofundme campaign going as well, do you think you can help me share it! My daughter and I are about to face being homeless if we don't achieve our goal within a certain time frame. So, if you can be so kind as to share it, that would be worth far more than any dollar amount. Thank you! :-)

Bob, at this point I can offer only my best wishes and prayers. But I wanted to let you know that I grew up enjoying and appreciating your work. You are a true talent and a fine professional. Our field, and the comics fandom, have benefited immeasurably from your contributions. I hope this all works out for you. You have too much yet to give to be counted out just yet. Take heart. Blessings, -Briz
