It’s truly been a wonderful and incredibly active year for us. Thank you so much for being a part of our ohana, here’s to getting even more people to get down and draw in 2013!

P&IW members (L-R) Stephanie Koelkebeck, Tara Tamayori, and Rose DelaCruz

We will be taking a short break from Sketch-Meets over the next few months as we prepare for Hawaii’s biggest anime and manga event of the year, the Kawaii Kon on March 15-17 (Fri-Sun) at the Hawaii Convention Center.  You will find Pen & Ink Works in the Artist Alley selling member artwork and handing out information to any and all interested artists.  Due to the amazing support we received in 2012, we will be bringing back the Kawaii Kon Charity Calendar Project, featuring several of Hawaii’s hottest anime and manga artists.  Our 2012 calendar raised over $350 for Shriners Hospital of Honolulu and we hope to sell even more this year!

Kawaii Kon is a three day anime convention and conference dedicated to creating a broader awareness of, and appreciation for Japanese animation by celebrating the richness of the artform.  For more information or to purchase your tickets to Kawaii Kon please visit their website.

Comic Jam Hawaii

Collaborative work by Chun Yee, Scott Shinsato, Roy Chang and Jon J Murakami.

Pen & Ink Works may be on a short hiatus but that’s no excuse not to get your draw on!  Our friends over at Comic Jam Hawaii are as active as ever and always on the look out for newcomers to jam with.

Comic Jam Hawaii is a social get-together of local artists: professional, aspiring, and hobbyist who do collaborative cartoons, illustrations, and sketches while talking story. All abilities levels are welcome, all they ask is for participants to have fun and join in where they’re comfortable. Group drawings are collected at the end of each session and scanned into our Facebook Group page.  Meeting dates are the 1st and 3rd Sundays 1-4pm at Pearlridge Shopping Center.

Join the Facebook event page!

[…] notable gaps in this 20th annual edition of the festival — local art group Pen & Ink Works is taking a break until Kawaii Kon, and if the website (or lack thereof) is any indication, things aren't looking good for another […]
