SketchesForHaiyan extended and list of heroes – week 2

if your Thanksgiving weekend was anything like ours, then half of last week was already spoken for with friends, family, and food. SO – we are extending the deadline to participate in our #SketchesForHaiyan fundraising! we wanted to get as much money to donate to the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) and give people the opportunity to get them. so now we will be ending this on DEC. 9TH (instead of the original Dec. 2nd). plenty of time to donate AND get a nice little sketch by theFranchize, Flash, or Peng-Peng (or all 3 if you like!)

#sketchesforhaiyan List of Heroes from week 2
#sketchesforhaiyan List of Heroes from week 2

today marks the end of another week and we have more names added to our List of Heroes! thank you so much to everyone that has participated in this. your generosity will be a huge help to the thousands of people that have lost so so much to Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. if you have already donated to another outlet that benefits the victims, we want to thank you so much for your amazing generosity especially during this season when all of our pockets are already stretched thin. if you have not, please consider donating to our efforts to raise money for the PRC. just a little bit will go very far to buy food and supplies to the victims that have nothing left. and in return, we would love to sketch you something as our way of saying THANKS!

list of heroes – week 1

#sketchesforhaiyan List of Heroes from week 1

as promised, we have the list of those that have donated so far to our #SketchesForHaiyan project. we’re calling it the List of Heroes – those that answered the call to help thousands in need with any that they can give. thank you all so much for donating so far. we’re still taking donations for sketches this entire week so if you haven’t done so yet, please consider donating. donations will go directly to the Philippine Red Cross. (info on this project can be found here – https://identitycomics.wordpress.com/2013/11/18/sketchesforhaiyan/)

we’re considering extending through next week since half this week is Thanksgiving. plenty of time to donate if you’re still thinking about it. i know that news of Typhoon Haiyan’s devastation has died down on our tvs, as with most events that happened longer than a week ago. but it doesn’t mean that situations in the Philippines are fixed by any means. they have a long long way to rebuild and they can use all the help they can get. we encourage you to please consider donating directly to the Philippine Red Cross if you aren’t interested in getting a sketch. the sketch is just our way of saying thank you.

Samurai Jack #1 Exclusive Cover – drawn by Bryan “Flash” Turner (click on image to go to Southern Maryland Comic Con website)

even though we are enjoying some time at home from comic cons, we here at ID STUDIOS can’t wait for Southern Maryland Comic Con on November 9th. why?? because BRYAN “FLASH” TURNER’s exclusive cover for Samurai Jack #1 will be making its debut! and it is AWESOME!!! and what’s even better is that the back of it is blank. so make sure you attend the convention, get your copy of the exclusive cover, and have Flash draw you a sketch!

Jim Zub, the writer for the new series, is also a guest at the show so make sure you get his signature on it as well. gotta love all the ID STUDIOS art spread around on these different covers.    ~peng
