Conference Speakers

I went to a Philosophy Conference on Saturday (one I helped organise in fact; put on by a Philosophical Society I help run). It was a sweltering day, but we had some lively discussion. As usual, I should have been paying more attention to the papers and less time to the features of the speakers. The last fellow had a great face and posture but moved a lot so I couldn't get him. Quentin Blake would have done him justice.

Philosophy Speaker

I went to a philosophy talk in September, in London. This was the speaker. The fact that I ended up drawing rather than listening possibly says a lot.

The Queuers

Threw these down in 15-20 seconds or so, while people were in the queue at Starbucks.

Done in sixty seconds or less (or should that be fewer)

The last two were done really quickly. Again I'm trying to emulate some of the bloggers I admire. The portrait took longer, obviously. It went well to begin with and there was a likeness; then I fiddled with it, lost it, then did some reworking from memory. Not what I'd call a success.
