Yearbook Sketches

The idea for this came from another blogger, John Martz, who actually did his mother's entire class of 1968. There were about 500 in my class so no way was I going to do that. I tried it with a few of the characters from my own yearbook (yes, there is a self portrait in there as well). I thought it would be fun to show the photos right next to them so you could see if I came close.

Check out these other links too - John Ralston painted an entire senior class here. And Nina Johannsen did these fine drawings here.

Oh my gosh! I saw someone else do this too---your has made me want to try it. Very fun exercise seeing them side-by-side!

Wonderful!!!
Lisa is right, I too have seen someone do something similar...I think it may have been Nina Johansson?

Hi Anita and Lisa - Thanks for the comments! I found Nina's site and added a link to my post. I also found a couple of others too and added links.
