“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

C2E2 ART BOMB_sketches
Here are some of the head sketches I did at this year's C2E2 show. I conveniently had a scanner on hand, so I managed to get hi-res images for my archives.
There isn't really much to say about the images except for the fact that I limited myself to about 2-3 minutes with each one. Also, I wanted to see what I could get away with drawing these with just a pen and not my traditional bush. To my surprise, I was genuinely happy with the results.
I'm not going to throw everything out the window or anything - start doing everything with a pen. I think there are instances when the it's a great, appropriate tool. But more often than not, at least with my own work, the lines can come off really mechanical.
Eh. What do I know? I'm just glad I managed to sketch for everyone who asked for one. Victory!
