Draw the World Together is a charity that was created to bring artists together in providing new opportunities for children growing up in communities without basic healthcare and education needs being met. Founded in 2005 by Andrew Wildman as his project in Landmark Education’s Self-Expression and Leadership Programme, the program by bringing famous comic book artists such as David Lloyd (V for Vendetta), Dave Gibbons (The Watchmen), and Briand Talbot (2000AD) to create a piece of art that was auctioned to raise money for EveryChild, an international charity that assists the world’s most marginalised children.
Since 2005, Draw the World Together has appeared at almost 20 of the world’s biggest comic and game conventions around the UK and Europe, partnering with Computer Games giant NCsoft, using great comic art to generate revenue for children. Recently, the organisation undertook a new project with NCsoft (who is the creator of the City of Heroes superhero computer game) to design a computer with incredible superhero art, which is given away in a drawing, raising attention for both Draw the World Together and NCsoft’s new City of Heroes release.
Draw the World Together has now rolled out a merchandise line with a wide range of items. Products offered include T-shirts, long sleeved shirts, bags, mugs and more.
