Pen pictures

Simon and I are both big fans of Tablet PCs because the combination of being able to write things down, record things and carry years worth of notes around with us make work so much easier. I know dress designers who use them and pilots, and teachers who rave about them. This week Microsoft did a publicity stunt in Leicester Square, getting one of the caricaturists who sketch people to use a Tablet PC instead of pen and paper.

We went down to get caricatured, sitting in the sun and watching the crowds watch us.

Meanwhile the PR chap uses a Tablet PC to email previous sketches out by WiFi.

I'm done, time for Simon

Emil the artist starts with an 'ink' sketch

and then adds shading

He's not changing the way he works: you can see similar pen and paper caricatures on the railings...

And the final results. As usual, I look like a chipmunk.
