St. Mary’s Hospital, 10/23/09
An enormous thank you to the wonderful Berndt Toast Gang and other Ink Wellers who brought so many smiles to the children of St. Mary’s Hospital last Friday. Ray Alma, Howard Beckerman, Dan Danglo, Joyce Pedretti, Tim Savage, Adrian Sinnott, and Joe Vissichelli all came to support the National Cartoonists Society in their endeavor to promote volunteerism on this day.
NY Methodist Hospital, 10/23/09
Rami Efal and Nathan Schreiber teamed up again to create frightfully fantastic Halloween pictures with little Romeo. Thank you, Sparks of Life kids, for inviting The Ink Well back every month for this great midday event!
Our tremendously tough volunteers flexed their artistic muscle at the Coliseum Gym’s New York Strong Man Competition to benefit The Ink Well! We are grateful to the organizers of this event, Teddy Theodoropoulos and Joe D’Agostino, and to our own artists who lifted face painting and caricature drawing to new heights. Way to go Ray Alma, Jane Archer, Nola Denett, Leyah Jensen, and Joyce Pedretti!
Thank you to Rami Efal and a big welcome and thank you to new member, Nathan Schreiber! Both artists spent a lovely afternoon drawing with The Sparks of Life kids.
