, and sponsored by The Battery Cafe, the event was a fun and accessible starting point for many comics fans and artists to come together to draw. On Wednesday, February 1st, we hosted a drop in HOURLY COMICS DAY celebration complete with:
+ drawing supplies
+ two free comics workshops (4pm & 7pm)
+ a large-scale collaborative hourly comic on the walls of the gallery!
