Event Details

  • Date: Thursday, September 30th
  • Time: 6:00pm – 8:30pm
  • Location: 655 Mission Street, San Francisco
  • Get your FREE tickets. Space is limited so be sure to pre-register. We will be charging at the door, so make sure to get a free ticket now.

Private cartooning class

We’ve partnered with the Cartoon Art Museum for a special private drawing class that will take place at the museum on the night of the meetup. You’ll learn the fundamentals of cartooning and actually create your own superhero. Then, you’ll use Evernote and ScanSnap to save your work. Space is very limited.

If you’re interested, leave a comment describing a superhero (existing or new) that best suits you. We will randomly select a handful of people from among the commenters to participate. We will contact the selected individuals directly, so be sure to use a real email address when leaving your comment. To be considered, comments must be submitted by 12pm PT on Wednesday September 29th. Good luck!.

* The class starts at 6:00pm and lasts approximately 1 hour. After the class you can join the event at the museum.

    I have had the same superhero idea in my head for a long time:

    He has a hyper-accelerated/efficient nervous system that basically supercharges his strength, speed, senses, thinking, etc, while providing a shield-like effect around his body to protect him. It also allows him to discharge energy, like a static shock, with an effect like a stun gun for individuals or electronic equipment. However, it takes him some time to work up the current, as it were, to start using his abilities, and thus his weakness is that he isn’t always “on” and can be incapacitated easily when he’s not empowered. All rights reserved on this idea. :)

    I love the superhero idea. My son who’s almost 18 now has been doing quite a lot of animations. Perhaps this is a good place to start for him.

    Grew up reading comics, learned how to draw by copying the guys from Image (not Liefeld =P). I’ve been getting interested in alternative energy, would be a cool idea to have a superhero that could amplify external natural energy. Sun, wind, water currents. I guess he would be a technologist of some sort building equipment that could run off the amplified energy his body emits. I imagine this guy to be a Bruce Wayne intellectual guy mixed with the mutant power described above.
