sketches...

At conventions, people often ask me to do a sketch in their artist sketchbooks. These are sketchbooks you take to conventions with you and have all the artists do sketches in them. It's a great way to collect art by your favorite artists, and usually they don't charge you anything for it. Sometimes the sketchbooks have a theme like "eating" or "moon knight." I prefer when someone gives me a theme, because it pulls me out of my own head and forces me to draw something in a different way.

Here are a few of my sketches that have been posted to flickr:

Nancy:

and a very disturbing Yoda:

Thanks again for the great Yoda -- it usually stops people in their tracks when they're flipping through my book. Love the Blottified Nancy too.
