PCO Procartoonists - The Big Draw

The PCO will be fielding a team of cartoonists at this year's Big Draw event on Sunday October 14th.

Part of the annual festival of drawing is being held in London's Covent Garden this year and the PCO team have been invited to participate in the 'Battle of the Cartoonists' where professional artists bid to outdo each others’ creations in an art time-trial. Our competition is going to include cartoonists from The Guardian and Independent newspapers and Private Eye magazine.

The Big Draw is one of the activities of the national Campaign for Drawing.

Here is a picture of last year's event at Somerset House which took place when the PCO was little more than a twinkle in the eye of some cartoonists...

In the run-up to this year's big day, Bloghorn will be posting a few more photographs and we'll obviously, also be reporting on our activities after the event itself.

Bloghorn must thank PCO member Gerard Whyman (Ger) for the photographs of last year's event and recommends clicking a W for Whyman here
