What we're about

We are a meetup for imaginative artists that include illustrators, comic artists, concept artists, video game concept artists, and manga artists. Join us if your looking for a laidback friendly environment to meet and draw with like minded artists in the New York area.

Anyone from beginners to professionals are welcome to this meetup, as well as any themes such as fantasy, sci-fi, surrealism, horror or low-brow.

We meet each Saturday, most likely at the Cranberry Cafe (near Time Square) and occasionally at book stores, art galleries or outdoors (if weather permits). We will draw, discuss each other's artwork and about anything art related, as well as participate in weekly themed drawing activities which will have a theme picked for that day to work with, discuss, and draw.

The goal of this meetup is to create a time and place where artist who love and draw anything imaginative such as fantasy, sci-fi, and horror, can sit down with, meet, and draw with like minded fellow artists in their craft in the process making new friends or connections. We are inclusive and welcome people of all cultures, backgrounds, lifestyles and beliefs, as long as they are friendly, polite and like to draw.

In order to keep the face-to-face format that worked for us over 3 years already, meetups are limited to 15 people.

Don't forget to bring your pencil and sketchbook as this meetup is going to be drawing focused! 🎨 We are in public space so please only bring non-staining and odorless supplies like pensils, pens, markers, crayons, watercolors or pastels.
