This picture happened because a young lady came by my table at WorldCon in San Jose that year, and I was struck both by her features and by the way her hair was playing around her head. I thought her necklace was flattering as well, and I simply could not resist asking her if she would allow me to draw her. She was happy to sit for me. If she sees this and wants to contact me for a print, I would be happy to provide her with one. I like to keep this picture as an example of the portrait work I have done at conventions. Once in a while someone comes along that wants a drawing of their son or daughter or of themselves, and doesn't want a drawing of a roleplaying character, or maybe they see my sign and think I draw caricatures of people, but whatever the reason, they want me to draw a portrait from real life. I like to do this, and I sometimes add an element of fantasy to the pictures when requested, such as faerie wings or cat-like features, or some other alteration. It is my pleasure to do that for them.
