PCS members cold chillin' with Charlie Santore at the Saloon
We then took it on the heel to Tattooed Mom’s for a beer before attending the UArts Senior Illustration Exhibition and ELY Reception. The Ely Award is given every year to a standout student in the program. I am not sure who judged this year, but it had to be a tough decision. There was a lot of really good art on the walls. These students are very talented. Today was also the first time we met new member Adam Mazur. Adam ran into James, an old buddy of his who is enrolled in the UArts’ Illustration program. By the way, a handful of PCS members are also UArts instructors (hence Patch’s tie), and a whole bunch are alumni, so the Ely is something we look forward to every year. Plus we get to see the mob of art-hungry zombies coming up the trail.
Miguel Co won the Ely this year for his beautifully rendered children’s book illustrations.
I also really liked this dude Max Gordon’s stuff.
Eamon Dougherty making his serious face. Sadly, I forgot to take a picture of Anthony Pedro when he was hanging out.
