Original Art

2013 Doug Wright Awards All-Star All-Canadian art auction

This is one of the more terrifying drawings we've seen in awhile!

"The Chuckling Whatsit" by Canadian cartoonist Zach Worton. Worton's homage to the titular villain of Richard Sala's classic 1997 graphic novel is a masterpiece of inky evil!

Sala's ghoulish noir character has never looked better than when rendered by this modern master of the macabre.

The organizers of The Doug Wright Awards for Canadian Cartooning are pleased to announce the auction of a one-of-a-kind piece of original art by Zach Worton as part of the fundraising for the 2013 edition of the awards.

About the Artist
The Toronto-based Zach Worton is one of the most exciting new talents to burst on the comics scene in the past 10 years. Beginning with his massive historical graphic novel The Klondike (Drawn and Quarterly 2011), a sort of Tarantino-esque take on the Canadian gold rush, Worton has impressed with his visceral ink and pen smeared approach to violence and extreme emotion. Lately, he has produced  a series of bloody, disturbing explorations of the horror genre in comic book form: Horrible (2012), Now You Die! (Primitive Urges 2012) and  Blood Visions (Oily Comics 2012).

About These Auctions
The Doug Wright Awards were established in 2005 to spotlight the wide array of talented cartoonists working across Canada. The pre-eminent awards recognizing the art of graphic novels and comics, The Wrights are named in honour of Doug Wright (1917-1983) whose humourous strip Doug Wright's Family graced newspapers and magazines across Canada for nearly 35 years.

This auction is part of a series of fundraising auctions.  Please see our other auctions for more work my the best Canadian cartoonists, including Seth, Chester Brown, Pascal Girard, John Martz, Michael DeForge, David Boswell, Michael Cho, Dustin Harbin, Aislin, Zach Worton, Diana Tamblyn, David Collier, and Joe Ollmann.  Most of the artists who have donated work have created homages to classic villains from superhero comics.

All proceeds from these auction go to support The Doug Wright Awards.

The Doug Wright Awards are a non-profit organization formed in 2004, and are named in honour of the late Canadian cartoonist Doug Wright. The annual awards recognize graphic novels, comics, mini-comics, and experimental comics-based works published in English (including first-translated editions). To be eligible, a work must be a first-edition, full-length or a collection, and created by a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada.

This year's awards:

Celebrate the best and brightest in Canadian comics —past and present— at the 9th annual Doug Wright Awards ceremony.

Hosted by comedian, actor and writer Scott Thompson, the Wright Awards, which honour the best in Canadian comics, will be a feature event of the 2013 Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF). This year’s Wright Awards nominees include industry stalwarts such as Michel Rabagliati, David Collier, Ethan Rilly, and Michael DeForge and will be announced at a ceremony in Toronto on Saturday, May 11, 2013 at 7:00 p.m.

The event will also pay tribute to Quebec cartoonist Albert Chartier, who will be posthumously inducted into The Giants of the North, the Canadian Cartoonists Hall of Fame.
