Pres Romanillos Charity Art Auction

Animator Pres Romanillos has suffered a relapse of leukemia, and is in the hospital awaiting a repeat bone marrow transplant. His friends are putting together a charity art auction for his benefit.   You can visit the site now and view the art at  There are pieces from Al Hirschfeld, David Silverman,  Andreas Deja,  Eric Goldberg, Don Bluth, Ward Kimball and countless others...  

Pres is a personal friend of mine, I worked with him at Dreamworks on Shrek2...    Had many beers and spent many hours over heated shuffleboard competitions with Pres...  You wont meet a nicer person in animation than Pres....  Incredibly talented, and incredibly open with what he knows....   He and his wife Jeannine are hugely active in animal rescue and adoption.   Really good folk.

The Talbert Family Foundation has set up a charitable fund for Pres. 100% of these donations will go to Pres and Jeannine, to pay medical and day-to-day expenses. These donations are tax deductible. Thank you!   Spread the word!!

Apparently you can have 'Good' and 'Fast'... not sure about 'Cheap' though.
