Organizers at The Home Project called Pattinson " A natural artist"

Robert Pattinson, A Pencil, A Sketch And The Homeless: Raising Arizona

What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the name Robert Pattinson? Adored movie star, actor, musician, heartthrob? Well, now there’s one more item to add to that list: He can also draw — rather well, in fact.

About eight weeks ago Pattinson contributed a hand-drawn sketch to the “Home Plate Project,” an Arizona based group of fundraisers who work within the local community, with a specific focus on the homeless this year.

The project is actually part of the “D-backs Give Back League,” a non-profit program run by employees of Phoenix’s major league baseball team, The Arizona Diamondbacks.

So how did Robert Pattinson become part of this story?

Tim Emory, one of the organizers of the “Home Plate Project” and co- head of “Circling for Success,” the team that came up with the fundraiser drive for the homeless explains:

“Robert heard about us through his assistant Jeff [last name omitted by request.] Jeff grew up with Cory Parsons, a key member of the Home Plate Project team.” [along with Luis Calderon.]

And according to Emory, when Pattinson was asked if he would like to contribute a sketch to the project he jumped at the chance.

“[He was] really excited to create something to help the project,” Emory says.

The result? “Unfinished City.” The name of the sketch Pattinson drew using pencil on a wooden plate, which was then painted white and put up for auction online.
