Here’s another entry from my Comic-Con sketchbook. This is Rickey. He was sitting directly in front of me during the Ellen Forney session. She was reading from Marbles, her new graphic novel. The combination of the subject’s knit cap, his headphones, and his locks made for an satisfying combination of textures, and the headphones broke up the space around the subject ‘s head in some interesting ways.
After the session was over, I caught Rickey’s attention and showed him my drawing. In retrospect, it must have felt odd to have some stranger show him a drawing, not of his face, but of the back of his head. He was very nice about it, though, and gave me his email address so I can send him a link to this post.
