Bristol Renaissance Faire

Ma wanted to take my little sister and I to the Renaissance Faire for the labor day weekend and I couldn't think of anywhere more fun to sketch!  It was definitely some of the most fun I've had throughout the summer and am definitely stopping by again next year.  I wish my drawings looked good enough to just scan whole pages in and upload them, but I just took some of my better sketches and opted for a mashup instead.

Gesture of the Faire's exterior entrance done while waiting for tickets

"Why William, I do believe we are being immortalized!"

Ext. of the weapons shop.  I think I put in a little too much time and detail to really call it a gesture

Aaand this one needed a bit of digital tweaking since I drew so light and the scanner made things more difficult, but this will have to do for now.


  1. Dude, did that guy in the head cuffs stay there for a long time? That's a cramped job.

  3. Blegh, typing like a 2nd grader. Corrections below:

    He was there for most of the day, but eventually he switched out with another guy. You can't tell by the sketch, but he was in a large box as a target for tomato throwing (he kept a lot of props back there as well to badger everyone with. Hilarious guy!)

    Would've loved to get a more thorough drawing in, but tomato juice would splatter on my wide open sketchbook during every other throw
