Locust Moon Comics April Drink & Draw

Stopped at Locust Moon Comics (404 Locust Street) for a little bit last night. They were having their April “Drink n’ Draw” event that stretched way into the late night, so I tipped in briefly after work. A great group of folks there who love to draw and talk comics. There was some home brew in blue bottles and a lot of sketchbooks being passed around.

Chris Stevens knows his stuff and has a genuine love for the artform. He talks up artists from Charles Burns to Winsor McCay. Original art from Art Adams, Farel Dalrymple, and many other comics artists fill the walls. Locust Moon also has one of the best indy sections I’ve ever seen in any comics shop. Today, Eisner Award-winning comics letterer Todd Klein will be appearing at Locust Moon for a signing. Stop in and say hello. Looking forward to the Philadelphia Cartoonist Society’s “Septa Hobo” event in the spring where we will meet at Locust Moon at the end of the day for a BBQ. Stay tuned for more info…

  1. Yo! Next time you think you (are anybody on the blog) are headin' to another Drink and Draw count me in. Can you post the info on the blog somewhere? Looking forward to the Hobo drawin' day! Big time!!!

  2. Yup - A SEPTA Hobo Day some Saturday soon! We're gonna ride the El back and forth with sketchbooks, then end up at Locust Moon for a BBQ in late afternoon. I'm gonna draw up a flier in the next few weeks.

  3. A "Hobo Drawing Day." Wow I wish I still lived in Philly. I just might have to drive up 95 and crash this party too!
