Stay-Tuned For The Google+ Hangouts Coming Soon

If you haven’t heard, we’re hosting Google+ Hangouts every week with some of the top artists from photography, design, illustration, animation, you name it (if it’s creative) we’re talking about it.

New to G+ Hangouts? They’re easy. Google+ Hangouts are live chats where we talk about industry business tips, software tips, and what it’s like to be one of the top artists in the creative space. All you have to do is visit our Wacom G+ page, find the event that interests you, remember to attend (that’s the tricky part, but don’t worry, if you say you’re attending the event, G+ sends you a reminder that day), and finally bring your questions. Our guests will answer your questions during the Hangout.

To help you stay on top of the mind-blowing Google+ Hangouts coming soon, we thought we’d share a little insight to what’s next. If you can’t make the Hangout, all of our Hangouts are immediately updated to our YouTube channel’s Hangout playlist.
