One of PIGSquad's biggest annual events! Drink N' Draw has grown from a small gathering at local pubs into an evening of locally-made games and art during Design Week Portland.

Games are set up to play, and we invite artists to come make game-inspired art of the projects on display. All artists (or non-artists!) are encouraged to play games, meet developers and game community members, and make art!

For those who wish to compete, we host Art Battles: a series of 15-minute competitions of lightning round artwork creation based on local games! The featured game developers pick their favorite piece and the chosen artist wins a special prize. Art Battles are optional - everyone was welcome to just come and play!

Art from the most recent Art Battles will be displayed on our website soon!

For Drink 'n Draw 2018, we helped showcase 21 games, hosted over 580 attendees, and got so, so much art. This is a special event for different creatives to mingle and crossover between the games, tech, and art worlds. We can't wait for next year, but if you have any feedback on Drink 'n Draw or want more community crossover events, please reach out via our contact form!
