At this point, I don't get what Joey's plan is for this company.
Wally Franks talking about Joey, Chapter 1
Joey Drew is an unseen character as well as the founder of the old company Joey Drew Studios in Bendy and the Ink Machine, well known for creating the Bendy show cartoon. He is only mentioned in Chapter 1 and 2.

He is the animator and a friend of Henry, who collaborated with him making cartoons at the workshop Joey Drew Studios, along with other workers. In his letter, it is implied the company went out of business 30 years ago, and thus they had stopped collaborating.


Not much can really be said about Joey's personality due to him never appearing physically in the game nor having his voice heard.

From Wally's speech from his first radio cassette in Chapter 1, he said that Joey had lost his mind about "appeasing the gods" with the Ink Machine by commanding the workers to put one item from their work stations on each pedestals in the break room besides writing the checks from around that time[1][2], possibly hinting towards Joey being obsessive and insane, despite being kind-hearted like Walt Disney as assumed.


Chapter 1: Moving Pictures

From the very beginning of Chapter 1, Joey sent Henry a note inviting him to come back to Joey's workshop, as Joey had "something to show him".

Upon entering Boris' room, Joey Drew was most likely responsible for killing and operating on Boris, based from Henry's quote.[3]

There is a diary cassette where Wally Franks talks about Joey and his plans. Wally claims that Joey commands the workers from the studio to donate stuff from their work stations, and set them on each pedestals from the break room to help "pleasing the gods".

Chapter 2: The Old Song

Joey is mentioned by several known workers from the studio, including Norman Polk, Susie Campbell, and Sammy Lawrence. No other evidence of Joey is found in this chapter.

According to Sammy's second diary cassette while he's still human, it is revealed that Joey is the one who bought the Ink Machine for the company.[4] From the third diary cassette, it is also revealed that Joey has a sanctuary like Sammy has[5], although Joey's sanctuary isn't seen anywhere as of now.

From Norman's diary cassette, Norman was desperately attempting to discuss with Joey once he realized what Sammy was doing. Then Norman admits that Joey has his own peculiarities.[6]
