Well, there's not a whole lot going on in terms of comics-focused events in the New York and Philadelphia area this week that I know of, but I'd be remiss if I didn't flag three items that might be of interest…

The Dare2Draw is a non-profit mentoring and networking platform for artists of all levels, providing opportunities to connect with each other, face-to-face, and encouraging good health and business practices for cartoonists. Established artists and arts organizations meet in a supportive setting, putting the art back in sequential art. There are contests and prizes, with a fun and engaging game show vibe. We'll continue to showcase new artists to keep an eye out for!"
