A while back my good buddy and one of the founders of the Philadelphia Cartoonist Society, Jeffro Kilpatrick, had an idea. “What if a bunch of us got together and rode the El back and forth with our sketchbooks?” he said with a gleam in his eye like ol’ Saint Nick. The man is a genius! What turned into the First (dare I say) Annual PCS Hobo Day was nothing short of amazing. About a dozen of us gathered at the Spring Garden stop, rode the rails, had adventures and drew the entire time. The event was topped off by a BBQ at Locust Moon Comics in University City. Old friends made new friends and a new energy was awakened in the Philadelphia Cartoonist Society. You can keep up to date on all PCS type stuff on our blog and our Facebook page. After a day like this we are sure to do more outings with sketchbooks in hand and as always – All are Welcome!
A special thanks goes out to everyone that participated, Jeffro for the great idea and Locust Moon Comics for being such a gracious host!
