Okay, that's it! PENCILS DOWN! The Mercury Cover Art Charity Auction is now closed, and I just wanna say THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH for your generosity. Merc readers are the best readers, because they are in the "Give a Shit Club"—especially when it comes to kids in need, and especially those served by our auction's beneficiaries the Children's Healing Art Project.

(Miss the auction, but still want to help our CHAP? Please donate generously here!)

For all you winners, as soon as Ebay gives us the okay that your payment went through, you can come by our office and pick 'em up (as soon as next week)! We'll be in contact with all the info you need, and in plenty of time for all you gift givers.

Again thank you so much for playing along in the Mercury Cover Art Charity Auction—as well as huge smooches to our very generous artists who happily donated their work to raise money for these kids. YOU... GUYS... ARE... THE... BEST! Happy holidays.
