"Illustration 24" was held for the first time ever at PCA&D on October 19 and 20, during which artists created 24-page comics in one day.
Held in conjunction with the global 24-Hour Comics Day, PCA&D was the only participating venue in the region. Thousands of comic artists in dozens of countries take part in the event every year.
It all began at 6 p.m. on October 19 and wrapped up with a presentation of completed and not-completed comics 24 hours later.
Photos as "Illustration 24" progressed are posted on PCA&D's Facebook wall.
You can also hear a post-event interview on The Lancast, the region's best-known grassroots podcast site that features "the thoughts and interests of active members of the Lancaster County, PA community..."
