Join ASIFA Portland for a unique figure drawing opportunity, courtesy of Portland Thai Boxing, to observe trained fighters in action!
A late night party, presented as part of the 2018 Northwest Animation Festival.
Have a drink, then try making animation yourself. Attendees are provided with sharpie markers and lightboxes. Make twelve drawings, then pass them on to the next person. At the end of the night, all of the drawings are assembled… And we’ll have made a hilarious, chaotic, short film together. Organized by ASIFA-Portland, a chapter of the International Animation Society.
FREE and open to the public. Hosted by The Magnolia (a beer and wine bar) immediately across the street from the Hollywood at 4075 NE Sandy Blvd.

Have you ever asked the internet how to do your taxes? Or how to sign up for health insurance? Much of freelancing is cobbling together resources and teaching yourself, but we wanted to cut some of those late night googling sessions by asking the experts. The Wacom Experience Center hosts as we answer questions about taxes, health insurance, finances, intellectual property, and any other business-related freelancing questions you may have. ’Tis the season, let’s talk business!
