Sketch-ravaganza Art Sale @ Quimby's this Sunday

The holidays are upon us, which means it’s time to be merry, show love to all mankind, and freak out about what to gift to the people in your life.


But before you panic and commit to the first gift that comes to mind…


…maybe let someone else do the crafting. This Sunday, December 15 from 12:30-6:30 pm, Quimby’s Bookstore will be hosting six local comic all-stars, pens at the ready to doodle the image of your choice! Sketch-ravaganza is part of ongoing Quimbas (“Christmas with a Quimb’”) festivities taking place all season long.

Artists will be holding hour-long sketch sessions in the following order:

12:30-1:30: Ben Bertin

1:30-2:30: Lyra Hill

2:30-3:30: Krystal Difronzio

3:30-4:30: Grant Reynolds

4:30-5:30 Kevin Budnik

5:30-6:30: Jenna Caravello

Snoop their sites for some amazing illustrations, and come out this Sunday to put the maestros to the test! After all, it’s not often you can give your loved ones a personalized work of art. Merry Quimbas, one and all!
