Last night has an….interesting and colorful event associated with Comic Con International. At the PECS Bar in the Hillcrest area of San Diego, Prism Comics, a group that supports LGBTQ creators and comics, ran a Drink & Draw event at a busy San Diego gay bar.
Walking in, the models are the first thing to hit you, standing in poses for the sketches in the audience, of whom there were plenty, in superhero costumes and Lycra/spandex outfits in various states of coverage.
With artist materials provided by Prism for a donation, many lined the walls to draw the models, which included cosplayer and comics and adult film reviewer/vlogger Paul Charles a.k.a. The Gay Comic Geek, as many others lined the bar to chat, discuss the convention so far and enjoy the view.
With raffle prizes, the models increasing sense of having fun with their ‘job’ for the night, and the drinks and merry conversation flowing, a fun time was most definitely had by all.
If you couldn’t make it this year, enjoy some of the pics that are safe enough for us to run!
