Drink and Draw Like a Lady: West @ Things from Another World

Friday, April 15th, 2011

Start Time: 08:00PM    End Time: 11:30PM

Drink & Draw Like a Lady returns to Portland for a second year Friday, April 15 at the Hollywood Things From Another World (TFAW) at 4133 NE Sandy Blvd., Portland, OR from 8:00 p.m. to midnight.

This is a very special women-only event! All ladies--whether they create comics, love comics, or just want to learn more about them--are invited to take part in some female positivity, as well as complimentary hors de'oeurves, beer, and wine (with valid I.D.).

Founded in 2009 by Hope Larson as a pre-MoCCA event and organized this year by Lucy Knisley, Drink & Draw Like a Lady is an excellent opportunity for women to sketch, socialize with the local comics community, and network. Do you have minicomics and business cards to share? Bring 'em! Are you new to comics and want to get the female perspective? This is the perfect event for you.

Periscope Studio artists Cat Farris and Natalie "Tally" Nourigat are spearheading the West Coast edition this year. "There are so many incredible female creators, editors, and fans of comics in Portland," said Farris. "It's the perfect place for an event like this--we were really happy about the energy it generated last year."

"I grew up reading comics in the '80s and '90s," said TFAW Marketing Manager Elisabeth Forsythe, "but there wasn't really a female support system for me back then. I'm so happy there are so many women in comics today, and that TFAW can host an event of this stature."
