I've known Tommy Castillo since I first started doing convention in Pittsburgh years ago. His mighty floor to ceiling backdrop was always intimidating, which, ironically, is the complete opposite of the man himself. Always kind and helpful, you couldn't ask for a more caring dude.

When I had questions, he always took the time to give advice(I still have his notes and doodles he did on a napkin for me regarding the ever elusive female form). This is how he was with everyone, and now that time may be up...

Tommy's diabetes has taken to attacking the one thing all artists fear... our sight. Anyone who is a full time artist knows the benefits of creating amazing art full time don't come with health benefits at all.

What he needs is a costly surgery to save his vision or his world, his art, goes dark forever.

If you can't donate, please share everywhere and pass it along.

Thanks,

-Switt! 
Sammy Castillo here. As many of you may know, the World almost lost my husband, Tommy Castillo, in October of 2014. His ongoing battle with Diabetes took a horrible turn for the worse nearly killing him. While on the outside and to everyone it may seem like Tommy is doing better, in fact, things...
