About the Event

Ready, set, draw! In this fast-paced, hilarious sketch showdown, four illustrators compete for audience votes as they complete wacky prompts given to them by host R. Sikoryak. Sikoryak is a cartoonist and author of the graphic novels Constitution Illustrated, The Unquotable Trump, Masterpiece Comics and Terms and Conditions. This event is brought to you by Fall for the Book.
