A birthday party

FullSizeRender (31)

What if you went to a birthday party and the birthday boy’s request for gifts was for each guest to give a 10 to 15 minute presentation on an idea they were taken with? That is the gist of what I wanted to convey with this sketch. There was a lot of vigorous give and take, welcomed interruptions from audience members, and a lively exchange of ideas. I showed this by catching several people speaking, the direction of gazes and the exaggeration of the speaker’s mouth and hand. I used bits of line because it expresses exuberance so well.

    What a cool sketch! I like the colors a lot.


  3. I also think this one is fantastic. The barefoot science, angered and perplexed onlookers, and the person at the whiteboard forgetting where they were headed are all a nice touches. Awesome painting!
