What we're about

Get together and draw. Let loose your creativity! and all that. Bring ideas and tools and sketchbooks and share in the glorious conversation. Or hermit up in the corner and scrawl away quiet-like, doesn't matter, whatever you're wired for socially being in general proximity with people of like mind while creating can be fun.

I'm interested in quick sketching -- generally pen-and-ink at the moment -- of alive and active subjects, people, animals, occasionally trees. So I'll be scheduling meetups at coffee shops and parks, sometimes bars, and linking to whatever I can find in the way of local draw-centric events -- figure drawing, sketch crawl, 24-hour comic, etc -- and also events that while not specifically catering to artists offer lots of great material -- cons, renn faires, game day tailgating, etc. If you're into something else, tell me and we can set up a session and see who shows.

Longer term, if we have enough people and enough interest, let's produce some kind of tangible art-thing -- zine, guerrilla installation, web-comic...

Sunday Coffee and Comics

Serenity Coffee and Kava Bar

Weekly meetup, on slow day Sunday, moved it up to noon to accommodate the brunchers and the hungover. Let's imbibe mildly-psychoactive concoctions and discuss art and comic books while creating same. Make something good we'll take pics and post them on the group. Bring some books along to share and discuss. Serenity's a lovely coffee shop with a classic bar in the foyer and a ridiculously spacious room on the side. They offer very good coffee and a selection of the popular new drinK-drugs (kava, kratom, kombucha). Clientele is mostly students and assorted ne'er-do-wells (and sometimes dogs!), friendly, talkative (a K drug is a sociable drug -- not to mention all that caffeine), ripe for surreptitious portraiture.
