Sketchbook - Kaja Foglio

Yes, I'm fully aware that this is not Aquaman. In fact, this one was not done in my sketchbook at all. As you can see from the lines, this one was drawn in my autograph book, and is in fact an autograph. Kaja, as you all know, is co-creator of the simply marvelous book Girl Genius, the wife of goofy artist from last week Phil Foglio, and a guest at the upcoming Anglicon XVII. You can also read her blog. In short, she's cool, and this is a cool sketch even if it isn't Aquaman...

As a reminder: Almost every sketch in my sketchbook was non-commissioned and done on the floor of a con. These are not the best works of the artists. These are only representative of what the artist can do under pressure in a loud, crowded, and often stressed-out environment. Most of them were done as quickly as possible, to prevent huge lines from forming. Don't judge any of these artists negatively by the artwork you see, instead be as impressed as I am by what they accomplished in far-from-ideal conditions.

To see all the sketches I have permission to post so far, check out my Sketchbook Page. If you have any contact information for any of the other artists I'm trying to contact, please e-mail me. Click for a random Aquaman sketch.

The Saturday Sketch ™ is brought to you by the letters "K", "F" and the number "58", and also courtesy the fine artists who pour their lives into producing wonderful comic books, then come to conventions only to get asked by geeky fangirls for a sketch of Aquaman. Support an artist, buy a comic book.
