Click on the title of this post to go to our sister Blog, TAG North, to see some recent posts. We have a bunch of new drawings and a photo of some of the attendees... you may even recognize one or two of the names and faces.
We have been getting fantastic results at the sessions with the last 2 meetings hitting 24 artists in attendance. The mailing list has become pretty huge and there is a lot of excitement for this whole thing. We meet on the first Tuesday of every month at the PopCap office, where there is a large break room for us to hang out together in. We are attracting comic book guys and freelancers as well as game artists.
It's surprisingly easy to maintain as well... I send out a meeting reminder a week before the next session and then the day before. I also send out an occasional reminder about the blog. Then all I need to do is keep the mailing list up to date and bingo! We've got a new Seattle institution!
I don't get too much of a chance to draw myself at the meetings as I need to let people into the building after hours (shades of the K street loft!) and because I want to walk around and spend time with all of the folks who show up.
Our last meeting was the day that Shel passed away, and it seemed like going to a TAG meeting was a very fitting way to remember him. If you guys come up to visit us, you need to make sure that part of your visit falls on the first Tuesday of the month... :)
