Dateline Decmeber 31, 2015, Tacoma — The C.L.A.W. dominates First Night festivities in downtown Tacoma with it’s annual caricature drawing event hosted by Brooks Dental Studio on Broadway right in the middle of the proceedings! Well, I say dominated…but we were definitely one of the top draws for the year-end block party, in addition to the Circus and the food trucks and the live bands. It was a heck of a swaray, as always!
CLAW members who donated time and hand cramps to the proceedings were James Stowe, Stan Brown, Mark Brill, Steve Bernard, Corey Macourek and Mark Monlux! Here are a few samples of the night’s employment!
Also, it should be noted that members of the Cartoonist’s League of Absurd Washingtonians will have artwork on display at Brooks Dental Studio throughout January! Come in, check it out! And get you teeth cleaned…
Happy NewYear from The C.L.A.W.!
