This is a little different than usual, but here’s a drawing I was commissioned to do at the Chicago Comic-Con this past weekend. Sorry for the lousy picture, I took it when the drawing was in a plastic holder, and it’s a little warped looking. Anyway, It’s the cast of “Firefly” with the couple who commissioned it added in on the right.
Apparently one of the things you are expected to do when you have a booth at a comic-con are commissions for people. My buddy, comic book superstar Tom Nguyen, did a ton of them all weekend long. I prefer to do the fast caricatures of people because they are over and done when the subjects are sitting there, and I don’t end up with a bunch of drawings I have to catch up on. This one was for the gentlemen with the table right next to me, done as a present for his wife on their anniversary or her birthday (can’t remember which). That was a special arrangement. It was fun to do but did take some time.
