Sketchbook: Red Angel Wings.

At San Diego's Comic-Con, the people and outfits are often more interesting than the exhibits. It's a great place to people watch. These are drawings done in a Moleskine sketchbook based on photos I took five or six years ago at Comic-Con of two women dressed with red angel wings, representing a booth. There is something about people with wings that make it fun subject matter to draw. All drawings are various combinations of pencil, watercolor, and gouache.
