What I Drew At CONvergence

I was at CONvergence last weekend, and as I always do at conventions I filled several sketchbook pages while listening to panels. These are basically the artistic equivalent of fidgeting, so I don’t have a ton to say about the individual drawings except to point out that they are an excellent example of what my brain defaults to when I’m not trying to draw in anything in particular. Monsters, buildings, general weirdness, and if all else fails abstract swirls.

All but the last drawing with the floating person were done with various types of pens (don’t ask how many I tend to carry on me at all times because you NEVER KNOW when the mood to draw might strike) because A) I really like pens and B) sketching at a convention is absolutely not the time I need to be fussing over every mark. You can see in a couple of the drawings below where I started doing one thing and then changed my mind, but I still had to work with what I’d originally put down. It’s character building, or at least I enjoy giving myself that challenge.
