Chris Battle is having a couple of auctions through eBay Giving Works to benefit Give2Asia. Chris: “They’re for 2 additional Tron Quorra prints that were featured in Q-Pop’s Help Japan show out here in L.A. last month. Since the quickly organized Q-Pop show was unable to offer international sales thru their online store, I decided to offer these extra prints on eBay to allow some of my overseas fans (Some of whom contacted me about their inability to buy the Q-Pop pieces) to get in on the action.  The auctions just went live this evening, and will end May 1st @ 9:00 PM.”
The two Quorra auctions are here (blue) and here (red).
