4,500 people attended a 50’s, 60’s, 70’s bandstand theme at the Philly Convention last night.
Roaming about were great characters like Rocky, Austin Powers, The Village People, Sonny and Cher, and the whole place was decorated with stations from that year.
The band played on a huge stage with cartoon videos, along with videos of the event, projecting behind them.
I strapped on my homemade strolling easel board and approached my first victim (lol) in the crowd.
As I quickly sketched this person, the next one lined up excited for a cartoon-likeness drawing.
And there I stood as the my line grew long. No need to stroll. The crowd came to me and I was happy to create a fun cartoon for them.
Strolling and drawing is not easy, but once you get the knack for it, the hours can go by very quickly.
Here are my few photos that I was able to snap for the evening.
