Making money off it? :D; I'm terribly mercenary, I know. But it's more than I'd get as a barista or bank teller, so...
Medieval illuminated manuscripts, especially depictions of Hell or weird errata in the margins, hoax manuscripts like the Voynich manuscript or the Coedex Seraphianus, medical illustrations, infographics, dinosaur reconstructions, Jim Henson stuff, and I guess Final Fantasy and animé.
I live in East Bay, make art for a living, and this group is worth the hour commute there, as well as the hour commute back home. The organizers clearly love putting it together. When I went, there was also a board game group full of similar people going on at the same time, which was like the peanut butter to the chocolate of drawing with friends.
