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.

    Thanks Ken, Hugo, Terry and Anthony!

    Terry, you have great work on your blog, too. I check in from time to time, but I’m not sure if I had posted lately. Will do soon.

    Anthony, I actually HAVE a head light strap, but no, I didn’t use it.
    I had to make DO with the lights available in the room at the event.

    There was this annoying florescent light that would flash by every 10 minutes and blind me and my standing guest, but I would wait for it to go away in seconds to draw again.
    It was actually quite humorous when it happened, though. I would squint and yell, “Bright Lights, Bright Lights!” My guests would laugh for they completely understood as to why I could not draw at that “flashing” moment!
    Thanks again!
