For the third year, The Animation Guild’s Political Action League Committee hosted it’s annual Post-it Note Show featuring submissions from the Guild’s talented members.
When the show launched in 2019 as an in-person auction, 237 submissions raised $1,915 for the IATSE PAC. The following year, the pandemic required the event’s planner Field Rep and Political Coordinator Leslie Simmons to come up with a creative solution. The Post-it Note show was turned into a virtual auction on the Bidding Owl platform. Though the show featured only 86 submissions, we raised the substantial amount of $1,791.50 thanks in part to inviting IATSE members from across the U.S. to participate in the auction.
This year, the Post-it Note show topped all expectations with 206 submissions raising $4,627 for the IATSE PAC. The top five winning bids included:
- “Pumpkin Pie” by Will Patrick
- “Spike Lee – Experienced Worker” by Bradley Rader
- “The Seasons” by Candice Stephenson
- “Remember to Stretch” by Janice Chun
- “Unlucky” by Danny Ducker
Several TAG members showed their creativity with additions like the mini frames crafted by Drew Newman and embroidered Post-its handmade by Trisha Butkowski.
Thank you to all of the TAG members who took the time to create and submit artwork for the show. Additional applause to all our members who bid on these unique artistic pieces.
