We have found our newest employee and his name is Matt Will! Now I know what you’re thinking; “Oh my, Matt Schoch, you two share the same name! Will you two be friends or enemies?” To that I sagely answer, “Only time will tell!” His first day is Febuary the 4th and until then, we can only count down the days and internet stalk him. Does he have a girl/boyfriend? Does he have any embarrassing tattoos? Does he have a livejournal of Harry Potter fan fiction? Is he really into Nickleback? Maybe we will find out. 6 days till Matt Will!!!

Hello everyone! We were so excited and touched by the number of generous people who donated to the New York City Food Bank through Will Draw for Food. It really meant a lot to us. We also want to thank all of the artists who took time out of their busy day to help us draw 194 food inspired pictures. You are the BEST and we couldn’t have done it without you!
Two days before the event OrangeYouGlad tweeted at Ed Emberley, asking if he’d like to donate a drawing or two. Because Twitter is magical, he noticed our message and hosted his own family draw-a-thon over Thanksgiving. Four lucky donors will receive drawings from Ed Emberley, Rebecca Emberley, Michael Emberley, and Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick! How cool is that? Thank you Emberleys!
Finally, we’d like to thank our corporate donors: Social Guide for donating money for supplies, The Wine Sisterhood for supplies and a $500 match, Alissa Neil P.R. for their publicity work, and Little Rhody Press for donating drawing paper. We are so lucky to work with you and appreciate your shared enthusiasm for our cause!
For those who are curious about when we’re shipping the drawings—we’re hoping to get everything in the mail by December 4th, so you’ll receive it in time for the holiday. Due to the positive response, we’re already planning good things for next year’s draw-a-thon. WATCH OUT and stay updated here via our tumblr OYG Draw!
This past week was very hard for us in the NE and NYC got hit pretty hard. We want to put our drawings skills to use for a good cause and feed some hungry folks out there who really need it.
Donate $20 or more to benefit the NYC Food Bank and we’ll send you a custom illustration created by one of our talented artists during our one day Draw-A-Thon on Novemeber 16th. We’ll be taking donations up until that day. So don’t wait!

Oh Sandy, you broke our hearts but you have not broken our spirits.
