The Megabolt Sketchbook Project

I am super honored to be involved with Megabolt’s new sketchbook project. When you buy one of the books, you’ll also be buying a copy for a child in the hospital. Each book will be individually numbered, and you’ll be told exactly who your book is going to, plus their artwork will be uploaded when it’s completed for you to see. This is a really cool, inventive project, totally different from the standard charity drive. The books are $7 each, or $17 for three. More artist editions will follow in the future. Visit Megabolt.org.

Back in January of 2010 I launched a shirt that some of you may remember. A good friend’s father had brain cancer and they were racking up medical bills like no one’s business, so we sold a shirt to raise money. OMGPosters was the first site to ever give us the time of day. Today we launch a completely new project for Megabolt (again with the help from OMGPosters).The Megabolt sketchbook is a brand new product/project that is the backbone of our children’s hospital art workshops. With the purchase of a sketchbook you are also giving one to a child in a hospital. We want to give kids the chance to escape their crummy situations and just have fun. One book at a time we hope to be able to reach out to children’s hospitals in every state in the U.S.A. For more information go to Megabolt.org If you have any questions about Megabolt or the new project please email us.

  14. this is a great idea but I’m a little confused. Does any of this money fund the children’s hospital? and in what way? or are the kids just receiving a sketchbook.

  15. Justin- The books mostly fund this specific project (paying for your book as well as a childs and the cost to bring all of this online – staff etc) however the little profit left over is used to fund art workshops Megabolt will be starting in about 1-2 months. If you’re interested in volunteering a a workshop more info will
