BREA, Calif., May 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solutions, will hold an online charity auction for a one-of-a-kind NFT art piece from ViewSonic ColorPro Partner and Star Wars and Lucasfilm illustrator Cliff Cramp. Proceeds from the auction will benefit Make-A-Wish Orange County & the Inland Empire, a foundation that helps fulfill the wishes of children with a critical illness. The online auction will run until May 28th, 2022 and ends at 11:59 PM Pacific Time. A valid and active crypto-wallet and account is required to place a bid.
“ViewSonic developed the ColorPro series of professional-grade monitors to address the needs of the most demanding content creators,” said Oscar Lin, General Manager of the Monitor Business Unit at ViewSonic. “We’ve connected with Cliff Cramp, who is renowned in the entertainment industry for working with Lucasfilm, Nickelodeon TV Animation, Disney Entertainment and DC Comics, among others. As a ColorPro partner, we tasked him to create an exclusive piece for us to auction for charity. We hope that by holding this online charity auction, we can help those in need.”
“When ViewSonic reached out and asked me for a custom piece of art to auction off for charity, I was more than happy to provide something cool and unique that reflects both ViewSonic and my art said Cliff Cramp. I’ve been working with the ColorPro team and use the ColorPro™ VP3268-4K monitor for my work. My illustrations consist of gradients of light and shadows, and I rely on my display to deliver the detail and precision I need. Knowing that the ColorPro monitors can match my level of detail is why it’s the only monitor I use. Being able to create art for charity makes it even better.”
