I’ve been recovering after a full on weekend of drawing caricatures at Supanova con in Adelaide. I drew approximately 60 people, with at least 10+ people being repeat customers from past years!
This is the only con I’ve done all year, because I got a bit exhausted keeping up with the whole fanart merch making craze, and decided to mostly focus on honing my skills as a caricaturist.
Supanova runs the most efficient and well organised cons out of all the aussie ones I’ve tabled at, and I hope it continues in Adelaide well into the future! I got 5 chairs AND a great corner booth to draw my caricatures off of, so thanks to the great people volunteering and managing the event.
I learn so much from every single caricature I draw and am REALLY grateful to everyone brave enough to sit down and be drawn by me. Even if sitting for a stranger seems weird, trust me it’s way scarier drawing a stranger in 10 minutes! (and to meet a high expectation for the drawing! )
I’m glad people get a kick out of watching me draw and getting a traditionally inked and coloured drawing. There is something really satisfying about starting my timer and trying my best to capture the people/person in front of me. The girl in the first pic has been getting a caricature from me for the last 4 Supanovas (since 2015), so I must be doing something right!
Don’t know which aussie cons I will apply for next year, or can be bothered travelling to, but we’ll see….until the next one!
