The Dare2Draw is a non-profit mentoring and networking platform for all comic book and creator artists, an opportunity to connect with each other, face-to-face, encouraging good health and business practices for cartoonists.

Established artists and arts organizations meet in a supportive setting, putting the art back in sequential art. There are contests and prizes, with a fun and engaging game show vibe. We'll continue to showcase new artists to keep an eye out for!

The Dare2Draw gathers people interested in sequential art and comic books, for an exciting monthly activity centering on their love for the art form. With increasing word of mouth and some great sponsors, we continue to build an ongoing community event.

At the Dare2Draw, artists dare themselves to do better than they’ve done before and free themselves to just let it flow. The D2D is for artists and comic book aficionados who love the art in comic book art and want to further their talent and network with other fans and pros. The atmosphere at the Dare2Draw is one of camaraderie and encouragement. The D2D provides a mentoring environment with our art demos, live model instruction, Quick Draw Contests and prizes provided by our sponsors.

At the Dare2Draw events, seasoned professionals present lectures, demonstrations and Q&A’s, on all aspects of sequential art, from ‘acting’ for the comic book panels, to breaking down a script, figure drawing, anatomy, painting, gesture drawings and using different drawing techniques and mediums. At the Dare2Draw, we always strive to stretch the borders of the possible and offer a way for all the attendees to expand their abilities by working together.
