Our Mission


Welcome to The Ink Well Foundation!

The Ink Well is a 100% volunteer-run 501(c)3 non-profit organization of accomplished professional animators, illustrators, and cartoonists. We provide free drawing sessions to children facing illness and hardship in hospitals and other health care and support centers.  It is our hope that by creating original art with the very people behind their favorite TV shows, films, and books, these brave kids may learn the power of art as self-expression and will just get to take a break from trying times and have some fun.

Our volunteers have worked on TV shows such as SpongeBob, The Simpsons, Phineas and Ferb; features such as Ice Age and The Rugrats; comic books such as Batman, The Hulk, Archie, and Mad Magazine; illustrations for Rolling Stone, Harpers, The New Yorker, Time; as well as graphic design for BBDO, Grey, Goodby Silverstein and more.
