Sketches from Gen Con 2012

I do a lot of sketching at Gen Con in copies of the books I sell, in fans' sketchbooks that are filled with drawings by a variety of artists, and even on some unique surfaces like rubber playmats (used for playing card games) and dice bags.

A few of my favorite sketches from Gen Con (with apologies for the poor digital photos):

Each year Gen Con holds a charity auction to raise money for a non-profit organization. This was the dice bag I decorated for the auction.

A Sharpie drawing on a playmat–not the most forgiving surface!

This sketch was drawn in a handmade journal. The request was for a sketch and a brief narrative suggesting that the journal belonged to an explorer in an historically–based fantasy world.

You may have noticed a bit of a trend. Profiles are faster and easier to draw well in a busy convention environment.

Wow! Those are all very pretty. I am a bit jealous of the sphinx. I love her design.
