Buy Art & Help Philippines: #sketchesforhaiyan

The artists behind FANBOYS VS. ZOMBIES and the upcoming LOKI: RAGNOAROK AND ROLL, both from BOOM STUDIOS, are having a fundraiser for disaster relief in the Philippines. From the Identity Comics Website:

“Our mission – to get more people to donate to disaster relief efforts for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. As a thank you, members of ID STUDIOS will be drawing single-character pencil headsketches for every $26 donation. The $6 will go towards shipping your sketch to you. (We’re only shipping to addresses in the U.S. Sorry, we can’t ship these internationally.) The rest will be given directly to the Philippine Red Cross. Feel free to donate more than $26. If you would like more than one sketch, it’s $26 for each sketch.

If you would like to participate in our mission, please send at least $26 via PayPal as a GIFT to INFO @ IDENTITYCOMICS.COM. Sending it as a GIFT will prevent fees from being taken out. We will then donate the total amount at the end of 2 weeks directly to the Philippine Red Cross. Please provide us your name, mailing address, email address, character you’d like drawn, and your artist of choice in the MESSAGE box on PayPal. You can choose between Peng-Peng, theFranchize, or Flash to draw your sketch. You can email INFO @ IDENTITYCOMICS.COM to let us know what we can draw for you!

We’re running this sale for 2 weeks from Nov. 18th till Dec. 2nd. We plan on mailing out all art starting Dec. 9th. All sketches will be drawn on 5.5×8.5” cardstock paper. At the end of each week we will post names and how many sketches they’ve requested on so that you know exactly how much donations we’ve received and exactly what we’re sending to the Philippine Red Cross. This is part of our effort to be as transparent and honest as possible.

We’re not a non-profit organization, we won’t have any forms to give you that you can use to write off your donations for tax purposes. We’re just 3 people trying to draw sketches in exchange for donations towards disaster relief. If you are uncomfortable about this, we completely understand and we highly encourage you to please give your donations directly to the Philippine Red Cross or other organizations that will help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

We’re asking you, our fans & friends, to please consider donating and telling others you know via social media. Please use #sketchesforhaiyan on Twitter to spread the word. Donate AND get some art all at the same time. Everyone wins!!!

Feel free to visit our online portfolios/blogs to see samples of our work.
