Denvention 3 Mugshots




















Name that face!


or the 66th World Science Fiction Convention Sketchbook.

You can find more sketches over on my website The Periphery

I listen better with a pencil in my hand, so while attending various panels, I took notes... but found my hand straying to draw the people around me. Same with hanging out in the common area or waiting for a book signing. I have no idea who most of these people are. There are a few you'll probably recognize. I hope. So I drew faces, along with various other odds and ends like ray guns and spaceships inspired by the panel presentations. This first batch is assorted folks enjoying the convention.

Weapon of choice? A Pilot Gel pen, black or blue on blank journal paper, or a fine line Sharpie.

There are several sketches begging to be made into paintings or illustrations, but those might take some time to develop. Yes, I know, file under "I Should Be Writing." and yes, I do have new poems and stories in the works, so it was not all about the art.

Multitasking... a polite term for the ADD writer/artist.

You draw well.

Thanks! Seven years of art school. I imagine if I actually practice, they would look more like the people. *g*

I'm hopeless when it comes to recognising faces (I only remember my own because I have a mirror). But you do draw well.

Gabriele, I can do faces... I just don't remember names. It makes teaching a challenge. Ah well. And these are quick sketches, so noses and eyeballs may vary. :)

Well, I still don't know who the guy is. ;)
