Triple Point

Here’s the annual program art for the sixth FOGcon, whose theme this year is Transformations. Special guests at the convention are Jo Walton, Ted Chiang, Donna Haraway, and the late Octavia Butler. Special guests in the illustration are a red squirrel, a lake trout, and… I’m not sure. Click for larger size.

Assembly Instructions

One reason I don’t do a lot of memoir stuff is that a lot of the things I can remember that are kind of interesting or funny are also drenched in self-pity and/or make me look like a confused, immature ass. That may be realistic but do you really want to be stuck in that point of view for very long? Well, this one is short and at least has a useful message about communication (i.e. it’s a good idea to do some). I also got to draw our friend the Ikea Diagram Person.

Pigeon portrait

One possible option, though not the most serious one, for replacing Andrew Jackson (as well as a crosshatching exercise). Pigeon was a character I drew for a brief story long ago and she’s haunted my sketchbooks ever since; just a well-meaning Luftmensch with her own style.
