What we're about

Since 2011, Sicaga has been the best place in Seattle to draw comics, make friends and have fun!

We are dedicated to inclusiveness, inspiration and support for aspiring sequential artists. Everyone is welcome, from seasoned professionals to total beginners. If you've always wanted to draw a comic but never even put pen to paper, the Sicaga community will get you started! You don't even need to draw comics to hang out with us, our members have included writers, coders, musicians even dancers! (There's a story behind that last one, ask us sometime.)

We've built our community around the idea of "encouragement before critique, critique to encourage." We want everyone who draws comics to feel empowered and motivated to try new things, build new skills, pursue their big project and make beautiful comics.

Sicaga hosts three weekly meetups and regular online work nights. We have a vibrant Discord chat server which we'll connect you with when you hang out with us. We coordinate lots of volunteer opportunities for comic artists through partners like The Bureau of Fearless Ideas and Sno-Isles Libraries. We've even created our own arts not for profit, The Sequential Inktank (http://sequentialinktank.org/), which is dedicated to supporting and promoting indie comics and comic artists.

In short, Sicaga is the heart of indie comics in Seattle. We're happy to have you join us!

Virtual Drink and Draw on Twitch

Online event

Social distancing is ongoing, but so is our artwork! While we haven't been meeting in person, the Sicaga gang has kept our Drink-And-Draw going virtually by hanging out together every Tuesday at 7pm at twitch.tv/sicaga. It's far from a perfect replacement for seeing you all in person, and our audio quality isn't always the best, but I've (rather timidly) decided to put the Virtual Drink And Draw back on Sicaga's calendar. Come hang out with us virtually at twitch.tv/sicaga on Tuesdays from 7pm to 9pm and share your artwork and progress, or just what you're drinking tonight. Live links to your projects, your art, or your own streams are strongly encouraged! Stay safe and keep drawing!
