Drawing somewhere in the Adams Family of authors

This is perhaps to do with the art of Fantastic Fiction, the idea being to sketch very small likenesses from the also very small pictures on Fantastic Fiction website

The end I have in mind is that when I am out and about sketching the people, very small, in my sketches so they will look better, perhaps in some cases be recognisable. Today I have moved up the ladder from pencil to pen. Pros and cons here but sketching out and about, I think the technical term here is “plein air” means it is very difficult to use fixative which stops the pencil from smudging.

I won’t bore you with the miles of authors whose names being with A that have got me as far as Adams, but here are a couple of sheets from today which I think show both how badly and how well things are going.

I clipped a 50p on to one of the sheets so you can see what I mean about small size, clicking on the pictures and then clicking on them again should make them considerably bigger than they are in reality.

Post a Comment

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
