Our amazing new employee Rob Ayotte started working with us for our Comic Book Summer Camp, then stayed on to work int he studio part-time. He has brought so much creativity and enthusiasm into the studio and is a great addition to the SJ staff!
Unfortunately on September 17th, (while Rob was thankfully working at the studio!) the 4-plex that he lived in was destroyed in a natural gas explosion. The building was broken in half by the force of the explosion and all Rob’s belongings were destroyed! He was safe with us at the studio when he found out at the end of his work day he rushed home to find his cat and anything else left in the rubble. Luckily his cat, Sammy was found in the neighbors yard and was rushed to a vet with several burns. Thanks to Kitty Klinic his cat was saved! But he lost all his personal belongings, photos, clothes, furniture, action figure collection, all his artwork, computers and more.
All the SJ staff decided that we would like to host a fundraiser to help Rob recoup his losses. Although we know that some items can never be replaced we hope to help in any way that we can! Please attend and purchase artwork or simply come and mingle and donate to Rob in his time of need. The studio is donating all painting materials and refreshments as well as staff providing artwork to sell. If you would like to donate your art please call us. 100% off all proceeds go to Rob!
